LAS VEGAS, NEVADA—February 25, 2014 – Today at Zumapalooza, Zumasys’ 7th annual customer solutions summit in Las Vegas, Zumasys announced the launch of its new charitable giving program: Happyness Is a Choice. With this program, Zumasys, a leading provider of cloud computing and infrastructure solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, builds on the success of its 1% Program with an increased focus on developing personal relationships and fostering employee growth.
In 2012, Zumasys began its 1% Program by pledging to give 1% of its revenue to nonprofit organizations nominated and voted on by its employees. Since then, Zumasys has donated nearly $500,000 to charitable organizations and is on track to give $1M by 2015.
“The goal of the 1% Program was simple,” says Zumasys President and CEO Paul Giobbi. “We wanted to give back to our community while connecting our employees to a greater purpose. We’ve come a long way, but we think we can do more. Our new program, Happyness Is a Choice is about supporting our employees with more intimate and personal volunteer opportunities at home and around the world.”
With Happyness Is a Choice, Zumasys will continue to donate 1% of its revenue to nonprofit organizations while providing incentives for its employees to deepen their involvement in volunteerism and charitable giving, including:
- Matching all employee donations
- Allocating 10% of the total funds to directly support individuals in need in their local network
- Supporting employees interested in volunteering directly with the recipients of their donations worldwide via serve days or other events
In 2012, the recipient of Zumasys’ largest donation was Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Since then, Zumasys has continued to support Second Harvest through company-wide serve days and a Thanksgiving 2013 fundraiser that raised more than $63,000 to provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need in Orange County, California.
In 2013, Zumasys was recognized as the #1 Small Company for Social Responsibility in the Orange County Register’s Top Work Places awards.
