CARY, N.C. (May 9, 2018) – Dude Solutions, the leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of operations management solutions, today announced its nearly 700 employees pledged 1,500 volunteer hours during the week of May 7-11 as part of the company-wide Volunteer Week. Employees are donating their time both individually and as part of a group to organizations across Raleigh-Durham and local to the company’s regional offices in Toronto and Seattle.
The Volunteer Week initiative is part of the company’s one percent mission, where employees are encouraged to dedicate one percent of their time each year to volunteering. All employees are given complimentary time off per year to donate their time to a local organization of their choice in support of this endeavor.
“Our Good Dude program was created to support local organizations, and the 1,500 hours pledged during Volunteer Week is a testament to our company’s culture of giving back,” said Ed Roshitsh, CEO, Dude Solutions. “From Habitat for Humanity of Wake County to the Ronald McDonald House and Brown Bag Ministries, our company has banded together to donate their time to organizations that do so much for the community.”
The Good Dude, an employee-run philanthropic committee, sponsors and coordinates several volunteer events per year. Most recently, the committee organized participation in the EarthShare North Carolina Corporate Earth Day Challenge, where 50 Dude Solutions employees spent an afternoon clearing a portion of the Eno River trail in Durham.
Organizations supported by Dude Solutions’ Volunteer Week include: Interfaith Food Shuttle, Raleigh Parks & Recreation, Jordan Lake clean-up, Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, Autism Society of North Carolina, Brown Bag Ministries, Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, Ronald McDonald House, YMCA’s Community HOPE program, North Kitsap Fishline and The Coffee Oasis Youth Shelter.
