Workplace Campaign Spotlight: Bank Director
Bank Director, a 2016 recipient of United Way of Williamson County’s Most Creative Campaign Award and Greatest Participation Award, continued their tradition of creativity and engagement this year.
The company divided into 4 teams: Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. The teams competed for points based on participation in activities, games, and superlatives such as Most Likely to Win at the Hunger Games, Most Like a Disney Cartoon Character, and Best Person to Share a Desert Island With.
Each day featured a United Way partner program and a special Spirit Week theme: PJs and Pancakes; Decade Day; Sports Day; Character Day; and Wacky Tacky Day.
Throughout the week, teams competed for Best Dressed and Most Creative costume awards and played games such as Trivial Pursuit, Pictionary, and $100,000 Pyramid.
“The week was a huge success, with 100 percent participation from all employees, and we raised more money than ever before in previous United Way campaigns,” said Laura Schield, Bank Director’s VP of conferences and Chief Project Officer.
The company’s partnership with United Way spans more than 26 years, since the company began in 1991.
Bank Director team members may each donate 20-24 hours of work time to volunteer activities of their choice. In less than one year, volunteers have donated more than 415 hours of service — translating into an estimated gift of $12,700 in the community.
Additionally, the company participates in United Way’s annual Days of Caring in September and a second volunteer activity in the spring.
“Not only are we benefitting the community with both our time and our resources, but we get to do it together as a team,” said Schield. “Our partnership with United Way has become a ‘way of life’ here at Bank Director.”
