Community Service

As leaders in our profession, we consider community service a responsibility. We don’t mandate it. We nurture and promote it. We support those involved, and we complement our employees’ contributions of their volunteer time with funding from the Thompson Foundation, the charitable arm of our parent company. Our commitment to community is explicit in our corporate mission, vision and core values, and is visible in the actions of our employees on any given day.

Our employees support a variety of community organizations and events including:

  • Funky Monkey 5K & Fun Run, an employee-managed fundraiser for the Thompson Foundation
  • Big Brothers / Big Sisters
  • and the American Cancer Society.

In addition, the Thompson Foundation awards grants to numerous organizations. Since 2004, the Thompson Foundation has awarded more than $450,000 grants to more than 100 community organizations.


A Safe Workplace

We are committed to a safe workplace. Our safety program includes regular, comprehensive training and is required of everyone, from a first-day hire to our CEO. Our employees expect (and deserve) to work in a safe environment. Whether its protective clothing, first aid training or onsite orientation, our safety efforts are never-ending, no matter where our work takes us.


A Healthy Workplace 

We recognize that healthier employees are happier employees. So we aim to educate, advocate and motivate employees on issues relating to preventable health care issues. We support healthy employees by:

  • Promoting healthier lifestyles through programs and activities throughout the year
  • Raising the awareness of specific health issues of importance to our employees and their families
  • Educating employees and their families on the preventive and wellness benefits through our company health insurance plan



Just as we take care of ourselves, we take care of our environment, both in our professional work and in our office. In the office, we recycle paper, aluminum and plastic, and properly dispose of batteries. We incorporate sustainable design principals into our work whenever possible. Learn more here.
