“It's more than just recruiting and retaining the work force — it's about engaging and motivating. Particularly with younger employees, they are looking for corporations that have a positive social agenda and give them opportunities to engage in community service."
-Robert Smith, Eli Lilly and Company
“Working with KIB is a great opportunity for my staff to blend our environmental engineering work focus with helping our local community address environmental issues. We typically schedule one or two Saturday mornings a year where my staff works with KIB to plant trees in a neighborhood, giving us the chance to share our resources as well as have a fun team building experience!”
-Timothy D. George, R.W. Armstrong
“Our initial experience partnering our new hires with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful last fall was so successful. It was truly an outstanding team building opportunity, as well as a chance to enhance and refurbish environments by working with students and the community. KIB did all the preliminary work… we just showed up ready to give back. Due to the success of last year’s project, we are planning to involve at least 200 staff in a one day project this November. ”
-David Resnick, Katz, Sapper & Miller
