UPDATE: McGladrey and the Haitian Relief Effort

A few weeks back, we described here McGladrey's role in the Haitian relief effort. We're proud to say that McGladrey has backed up it's words and actions by raising over $30,000 to date!

In addition to McGladrey’s corporate contribution to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, several locations have launched grass-roots campaigns to raise funds and collect needed items for the earthquake’s victims.

Casual Fridays and jeans days have been popular ways to raise funds quickly in the Mid Atlantic, Florida , Southern New England, New York and Mid West locations . In Southern New England, employees raised more than $3,520 for Save the Children. “We chose Save the Children because their mission is to create lasting, positive change in the lives of children in need,” says Mary Maguire, HR director-Stamford, Conn. “Children are some of the most vulnerable victims of Haiti’s devastating earthquake.”

The New York and California locations also pledged to match contributions from employees. New York raised more than $9,000 for UNICEF, and the California locations raised $12,300 for the American Red Cross.

New York’s Community Action Team spearheaded the location's collection. According to Director Joe B. “Many of those contributions were well in excess of the suggested minimum, and nearly 200 employees contributed something.” Director Angel K. adds, “With so many places to donate, I think our employees were happy to know that their donations went even further if they donated with our office, thanks to the local office match.”

The Dallas location's Community Involvement Committee identified Clean The World as a non-profit in need of contributions for Haiti relief. Employees have been collecting personal care items and baby products, including soaps, shampoos, toothbrushes, diapers and formula.

In Bloomington, Minn., employees chose to support a local charity, Feed My Starving Children, an organization with an existing Haitian network that allowed it to provide immediate relief. Employees raised more than $2,000, including a $1,000 match. In addition, employees plan to help package meals and other food destined for Haiti. “This organization provided us with a chance to do hands-on work in addition to donating money,” says Francelle Slocum, human resources manager. “It was also important that we chose an organization that we could serve throughout the year in an ongoing relationship.”

Female McGladrey Leaders Find Balancing Success in Florida ran a great article last week regarding McGladrey's Melbourne, FL office, which happens to be led entirely by women. The two Partner/Managing Directors in fact are Brevard County natives and started with the firm on the same day in the same office 20 years ago, all while raising their families.

Terri Burdine, who oversees the Tax Practice had one of the best quotes in the article related to leadership and her focus on people and talent:
"A successful leader has to be able to empathize with her staff and show them support if she is to expect the same in return. We seek out the best talent – professionals with a drive to succeed and qualifications to bring value to clients – but we keep that talent because we care. We express a genuine interest.”
If this sounds good to you, the Melbourne office actually has a Tax Manager position currently available. Click below to learn more:
