What to do with a ‘Desk Free’ day?

Written by B.J. Snelling

As an organization, we understand the importance of giving back where we live and work.  Several times a year, McGladrey employees across the country are encouraged to take time away from their desks to make a difference in their communities.  As a recent example, fifteen members from the Denver, Colorado team spent the morning of Desk Free Day volunteering at Food Bank of the Rockies. The team packed 9 crates full of 460 boxes.  Their jobs included assembling and labeling boxes, packing boxes with various food and drink products, loading and saran-wrapping crates, and disassembling old food boxes for recycling.

This is just one of many examples from ‘Desk Free’ day illustrating how McGladrey teams actively  get involved in their local markets and find ways to give back to their community. 

Other activities that are encouraged during ‘Desk Free’ day include Volunteering with one of McGladrey’s not-for-profit clients, having lunch or coffee with a business colleague to learn more about their company or industry, or participation in a networking event to meet other professionals in the field.
