This season, CRGroup staff raised $450 for the MS Society of Canada, a national voluntary organization that provides services to people with multiple sclerosis and their families and funds research to find the cause and cure for this disease. Throughout the month of December, employees placed bids in a silent auction in order to raise funds for the charity. Team members donated their time or services as items to be auctioned. Prizes included dog-sitting services, a holiday baking platter, Starbucks coffee runs and a CRG Mystery Bag.
The highlight for many, however, was the second annual pie slam, with several managers and employees volunteering to receive a cream pie in the face

Peers, and even some emPerform clients who were in the office for training, donated money to vote for their preferred candidates. The results were close, but manager of business technology Kris took the cake (or pie, in this case.)

“This is the season for giving, and if you can have fun doing it, all the better,” said Natalie, marketing specialist and lead of the company’s social committee. “Each year we select a different charity. It feels great to make a difference.” Last year’s auction and pie slam raised funds for the Ottawa Humane Society.
Congrats to CRGroup staff – way to go!
