Back in October, I watched in disbelief, along with everyone else, as Hurricane Sandy, a.k.a. “Frankenstorm,” headed straight for the Northeast, and in particular New York and New Jersey.
The day after CTIA 2012, iQmetrix -- along with client Connectivity Source and partners ProtectCell and Phobio -- donated money and volunteered time to Habitat for Humanity, to help rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The following is a blog post written by Kelly Markewich, iQmetrix Enterprise Account Manager, about his experience volunteering that day.
Members of the Davidson office, in conjunction with the Davidson Land Conservancy, worked cleaning up two locations: Roosevelt Wilson Park and the shores of Lake Davidson.
We are group of employees at iQmetrix who want to get the E going in our SLICCE (Speed, Lifestyle, Innovation, Character, Community and Environment)!
A great big thanks to everyone who's donated, helped out, and otherwise contributed to Movember this year. I want to especially thank Sean Anderson, Dustin Veitch, Jonathan Hack, Brad Rhodes, David Harms, Stephen Gaudet, Will Hunt, Tristan Moss, Steve Dawson, Allan Pulga, Alen Puaca, Thu Tran, and Cole Ecklund (and anyone else I'm forgetting) for going above and beyond the call of duty to help make Movember 2011 a great success.
Movember Week 3 will be our busiest yet, with several events scheduled this week. The iQmetrix Moustache Alliance is currently sitting at $1908 total collected for Movember, a big thank you to everyone who's donated and collected money so far.
iQmetrix was a proud Silver Sponsor of We Day Vancouver, held on Thursday, Oct. 13 at Rogers Arena. iQmetrix staff volunteered at We Day Vancouver as well as at We Day Winnipeg, Nov. 23, helping out with the Honored Guest and Seating Teams.
iQmetrix just finished up a company-wide training program available to all employees. It was called Authentic Leadership. It consisted of a one-day session, customized for iQmetrix and delivered by Bob Hornsberger of Whole Person Training & Consulting of Regina. Over 140 employees in four offices (and a few visitors from our satellite locations) took the training. Perhaps we shouldn’t say “finished,” though. We should say “started.” It felt more like a beginning.
