GIVING BACK AS WE GROW

At InScope, we continually seek to make an impact globally and in the communities in which we serve.Whether in direct support of our corporate missions or in the pursuit of a personal interest or passion, InScope employees are known by their desire to serve. InScope promotes and practices social responsibility through our robust InService program, aligning employee volunteerism with our corporate strategy.  We decided to give back to the community as we grew, knowing that if we didn’t make it a priority when we were small, it would be nearly impossible to change the culture when we were large.

VOLUNTEERISM

InScope’s approach to “Giving Back as We Grow” is primarily to use our time and energy. Each quarter, our InService program sponsors a service project for InScope employees to attend. The goal of these InService Days is to connect our day-to-day business work with our volunteer efforts. Projects in the past and that are planned include: food preparation at So Others Might Eat, property maintenance at Fisher House, and home betterment through Jubilee Housing.

SPONSORSHIP

InScope actively seeks involvement within the community by sponsoring a range of organizations endorsed by its employees. Sponsorship may take the form of monetary donations, paid student internships, or team-based events such as walks, runs, and races. What matters is the cause that is supported. InScope seeks to be well rounded in its partnerships with local groups, and as such sponsors a wide variety of organizations who also strive to advance the global good.

DONATIONS

InScope pursues its mission-centered focus not only in the giving of our time and endorsements, but also in the provision of our resources. InScope’s corporate matching program has allowed the company to partner with a variety of organizations that our employees endorse. Some employees even exchange their paid time off for donations earmarked for a community group of their choice. InScope’s commitment is not strictly financial– employees also give back of their resources as well, by participating in different food and material drives throughout the year.

The InService program is an outward expression of InScope International’s internal values. Our actions match our words and match the core of our consulting model. We do truly desire to “Advance the Global Good.” InScope is proudly “Giving Back as We Grow” to organizations such as:
