Urbana, IA (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
E-commerce company Clickstop has always made giving back to the community a priority. Whether donating money to causes important to its employees, purchasing Christmas gifts for local families in need, or donating iPads to the school district, its Clickstop Cares program makes an impact.
The unique program allows employees to voluntarily payroll deduct money to go towards the fund, which the company then matches, dollar-for-dollar. Money raised goes towards causes nominated by Clickstop employees, and can be anything from providing assistance to a local family affected by a serious illness to purchasing necessities for area teenagers living in foster care. The funds have also helped Clickstop employees themselves, affected by a natural disaster, medical needs, or financial hardship.
“Clickstop Cares has really been around since shortly after the company was founded in 2005, but we’ve always worked quietly, behind the scenes,” says Ashley Rambo, a Category Manager and volunteer coordinator for the program. “With the growth of the company, we really want to ramp up our efforts and help our employees as they work to fulfill their desire to help family, friends, and neighbors.
One of the main focuses of the newly revamped Clickstop Cares is a new source of funding: the E-commerce company’s own profit sharing program. In addition to employee contributions and company match, Clickstop Cares can be funded up to $50,000 yearly through the company’s profit sharing program.
Todd Kuennen, Clickstop’s CFO, came up with the idea when the company’s leadership team was re-vamping its profit sharing program earlier this year.
“Clickstop Cares is an important part of the company so we’re thrilled to be able to offer this additional source of funding to help the program grow,” said Kuennen.
In addition to monetary support, the company now also allows qualified employees 12 hours of paid time off so they donate their time to their favorite cause or volunteer effort.
Nicole Guenther, wife of founder and CEO Tim Guenther, says this benefit is true to one of the program’s main goals of keeping efforts and benefits to the local communities.
“Our vision for Clickstop Cares has been simple from the beginning: invest in the people and communities where we live and work through volunteerism, financial assistance, and educational initiatives,” said Guenther. “It’s been rewarding to see the program grow with the company and with the efforts of employees.”
