“I’m proud to contribute to a wellness program that is aligned with CDM Smith’s mission of caring for our employees and giving back to the communities we serve,” says Susan Glover, CDM Smith Benefits and Wellness Manager, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm. “Our program challenges partic­i­pants to live well and garner enough points to enable the firm to contribute $50,000 per quarter to various charities. Together, employees active in the program and our executive team choose the charities.”
