CDM Smith Makes Charitable Donation to Engineers Without Borders and Alzheimer's Association through Company Wellness Program
BOSTON, Massachusetts – Steve Hickox, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CDM Smith and Tim Wall, President and Chief Operating Officer presented checks for $25,000 each to Engineers Without Borders (EWB) and Alzheimer’s Association. Representatives from both organizations attended the check presentation ceremony at the firm’s Boston headquarters on May 8, 2017.
These donations were made possible by CDM Smith employees, spouses and partners who participate in the firm’s wellness program. The program − which focuses on both wellness and preventive care − tracks and rewards employees for healthy behaviors and accomplishments. Employees completed health risk assessments, received preventive care, participated in athletic events and exercise classes, managed their stress, practiced financial wellness and changed or tracked other behaviors that contribute to their overall wellbeing. Through these efforts, participants accumulated millions of points required to make these donations possible. The firm sets a quarterly points goal for participants to strive for, resulting in charitable donations such as these, which recognizes charities that reflect our emphasis on social responsibility and health related causes.
