We’re thrilled to announce we’ve joined the Pledge 1% movement!
What Is Pledge 1%?
Pledge 1% is a global movement that encourages and challenges individuals and companies to pledge 1% of equity, profit, product, and/or employee time for their communities. It is an effort to change the world through inspiring corporate philanthropy. Since its inception, Pledge 1% has seen over 12,000 companies from 100 countries commit to giving back. This has resulted in millions of dollars and countless hours donated to various causes around the world.
We’re committed to donating 1% of profit, product, and revenue from housekeeping and parking to charitable causes. Our commitment to the Pledge 1% movement aligns with our mission to leverage business practices for the greater good. By joining the movement, we’re taking a bold step to ensure that giving back is embedded in the DNA of our future business operations.
“We are thrilled to join an incredible group of companies across the globe that believe in giving back,” said Chris Fleming, CEO of Compass Furnished Apartments. “We are dedicated to making a difference in our community and believe that by incorporating philanthropy into our business model, we can inspire others to do the same.”
By committing a portion of our resources, we can make a meaningful difference in our communities. This includes supporting local nonprofits, our employees, partners, clients, and guests.
“We believe that giving back is more than just a business strategy, it’s a way of life,” added Chris Fleming. “We are excited to see the impact our contributions will make and are committed to continuing our efforts in the years to come.”
Our decision to join Pledge 1% is a testament to our commitment to social responsibility. This is just the beginning of our journey toward making a significant difference in the world.
Joining Pledge 1% not only allows your company to make a positive impact, but it also brings several benefits.
1. Employee Engagement: Employees are more likely to feel engaged and satisfied when they know their work is contributing to the greater good. Pledge 1% can help boost morale and productivity within your team.
2. Positive Brand Image: By pledging 1%, your company demonstrates a commitment to social responsibility. This can enhance your brand image and make your company more attractive to customers, partners, and potential employees.
3. Networking Opportunities: Pledge 1% members are part of a global network of like-minded businesses. This provides opportunities for collaboration and learning from other companies committed to giving back.
