Here at Skillsoft, we thrive on the opportunity to mix teamwork
and fun – an environment that our employees were able to experience through our
latest philanthropic effort this month.
As part of our global sales meeting in Orlando, Fla., our
team worked together to package 50,000 meals to be donated to Feeding Children Everywhere, a social charity that empowers
and mobilizes people to assemble healthy meals for hungry children.
A group of 440 Skillsoft employees from around the world teamed
up to package nourishing meals consisting of lentils, rice, dehydrated
vegetables and pink Himalayan salt. The meals will be delivered to children across
the state of Florida who lack regular access to healthy, balanced food.
This was no ordinary assembly line – Skillsoft-ers from all
different departments and job functions found themselves in the throngs of
fashionable hair nets working to the tunes of their favorite music. Team
members old and new enjoyed the opportunity to meet other employees outside of their
offices and conference groups. Inspired by the result of our work, we all left
the activity energized and fulfilled from working together and contributing to
such a worthy cause.
In the U.S., more than 16 million children are at risk of
going hungry each night, so our team was thrilled to partner with Feeding
Children Everywhere to address this epidemic and the fight against hunger. We
believe strongly in corporate responsibility and encourage our employees to
give back to their communities and greatly appreciate all who joined us with
this particular local event!
