"We think getting our employees involved in a day that both lets them relax and benefits such a great organization is one of the best ways we can spend our company’s time." Reesa Spitman, InstaClick CFO
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
Employees of IntaClick, a Toronto-based web development firm nestled in the heart of Liberty Village, recently ditched their daily workload to participate in a picnic and soccer game that benefited more than just the workers who were given the opportunity to pie their boss in the face—they turned their day of fun into a charitable fundraising event benefiting the Canadian Cancer Society.
Once a month InstaClick treats their employees to a team-building day where the staff can get to know each other outside of their regular 9-to-5 lives. During the company’s June luncheon, they put their treasured free day to good use by selling 50/50 raffle tickets, auctioning a day off work, and selling pies that employees were able to throw at the company big-wigs.
Within the one-day event, InstaClick and its employees raised $4000 for the Canadian Cancer Society, which they say they hope to exceed during their next workless work day.
“Through our monthly events we’ve already instilled a sense of community within the company, but we wanted to take that a step further,” said the company’s CFO Reesa Spitman. “We think getting our employees involved in a day that both lets them relax and benefits such a great organization is one of the best ways we can spend our company’s time. The fact that we were able to raise $4000 within the day is a great accomplishment. We look forward to doing this again real soon.”
InstaClick, who specialize in web development, have gained a reputation for their charitable donations in the past, but this is the first time that employees were actively involved in the fundraising.
InstaClick is currently expanding their Toronto team with positions open in their analytics, quality assurance, customer service and development teams departments.
