The Cary Company looks after not only its employees and customers but the surrounding community as well. Helping others is at the core of our business and we strive to lend a helping hand every day. We have two in-company organizations, Cary Cares and the Culture Committee, who aim to spread goodwill and positivity both inside and outside the office.
Through Cary Cares, The Cary Company donates to a different charity every month. We include a social media shout-out to these organizations to show our support and bring further awareness to their cause. Employees can wear blue jeans on Friday for a small donation that goes toward that month’s philanthropy—the only thing better than Casual Fridays is knowing you’re lending a helping hand! Past donations have included the Alzheimer’s Association and The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The biggest fundraising effort of the year happens during October for breast cancer awareness: the group organizes fun events including a bake sale that incentivizes employees to donate to an amazing cause. From food drives to shoe drives, Cary Cares unifies the company to help those in need.
The Culture Committee “aspires to create a positive work environment at The Cary Company for all employees, to unify Cary employees around a shared sense of purpose, and to enable each employee to pursue the opportunities they find most fulfilling. Recognizing the diversity of interests and abilities within the Cary staff, the efforts of the Culture Committee are dually intended to expand existing opportunities for professional development and enhance the size and scope of initiatives that foster a positive company culture.” The Culture Committee organizes fun events like our annual Halloween festivities that include trick-or-treating for employees’ children as well as our Employee of the Month award that allows coworkers to show their appreciation for each other and boost company morale. The Culture Committee strives to make The Cary Company an enjoyable place to work.
Between these organizations and the overall efforts of our employees, The Cary Company has grown into an active participant in the local community as well as an openly philanthropic organization. We are proud to serve both local and far-reaching communities through a corporate culture that prioritizes positivity, lateral service, and work-life balance.
