Here at Skillsoft, we thrive on the opportunity to mix teamwork and fun – an environment that our employees were able to experience through our latest philanthropic effort this month.
As part of our global sales meeting in Orlando, Fla., our team worked together to package 50,000 meals to be donated to Feeding Children Everywhere, a social charity that empowers and mobilizes people to assemble healthy meals for hungry children.
A group of 440 Skillsoft employees from around the world teamed up to package nourishing meals consisting of lentils, rice, dehydrated vegetables and pink Himalayan salt. The meals will be delivered to children across the state of Florida who lack regular access to healthy, balanced food.
This was no ordinary assembly line – Skillsoft-ers from all different departments and job functions found themselves in the throngs of fashionable hair nets working to the tunes of their favorite music. Team members old and new enjoyed the opportunity to meet other employees outside of their offices and conference groups. Inspired by the result of our work, we all left the activity energized and fulfilled from working together and contributing to such a worthy cause.
In the U.S., more than 16 million children are at risk of going hungry each night, so our team was thrilled to partner with Feeding Children Everywhere to address this epidemic and the fight against hunger. We believe strongly in corporate responsibility and encourage our employees to give back to their communities and greatly appreciate all who joined us with this particular local event!
