We’re always looking for unique ways to give back to good causes, because it’s a big part of The Austin Focus’ culture. We enjoy the positive attention that comes with volunteering, and we also appreciate that there are personal benefits to be gained from the process.
First, there is a lot of positive energy that comes along with giving back to the community. The body releases endorphins – the hormones that elevate your mood – when you take part in a volunteer effort. This also leads to lower levels of stress. Staying positive and focused on our goals drives our success, and giving back supports us in these efforts.
Seeing the difference we’re making in people’s lives also provides us with increased motivation to keep performing at our best. We’re a driven bunch anyway, but giving back has a way of reminding us how strong a presence The Austin Focus can be in the business community and our region as a whole.
There are so many ways to create a positive impact. Our team members have done everything from volunteering at animal shelters to reading to children at the local library. It’s important to home in on charities about which your people are passionate. These are causes that resonate with our team members, making them perfect targets for our giveback efforts.
