Employees Team Up for Habitat for Humanity
We’re proud to highlight our employees’ commitment to the community, like the Shoulder Arthroplasty Development team’s volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity at the end of March. For the past three years, the Shoulder Arthroplasty Development team (which includes product management and engineering) has been using Arthrex’s unique, paid “Volunteer Day” benefit as a group to inspire teamwork while helping others. Fifteen team members volunteered on Friday, March 30 to help build a house with Habitat for Humanity.
Greg Guederian, Shoulder Arthroplasty Engineering Manager, shared, “Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity is such a great team building experience. It provides the perfect environment for us to all work together and to interact with team members that we might not usually work closely with. Plus, we get to give back.”
The team painted houses during the last two years’ volunteer days, but this year, they helped earlier in the construction process by framing a house.
Associate Product Engineer Alex Rodriguez, who helps organize the event with Habitat for Humanity, shared “Volunteering has always been a passion of mine and I believe doing it together is a great tool for team building. It allows us to collaborate in a fun, outdoor environment and create memorable experiences together that improve relationships and enhance the level of communication, efficiency and productivity in the office.”
Thanks to the Shoulder Arthroplasty Development team for reflecting Arthrex’s community mission of Making People Better!
