Giving beyond

At LABOV, we involve our entire company in the annual Give Beyond campaign, which awards a local non-profit organization the 12 Hours of LABOV. We come together as a company and dedicate our entire resources for 12 consecutive hours to help the organization. It’s inspiring for everyone involved—not just the organization we’re helping, but our employees and vendor partners as well. We even invite the public to vote on which organization receives the 12 Hours of LABOV, which you can do now through December 18 at labov.com/givebeyond.

If businesses really want to create a culture of trust and safety, I encourage them to hold their own 12 Hours event and see how it can enrich their culture. In fact, our team would be happy to share our experiences and details of the day to help any company interested in holding a 12 Hours event (email us at pr@labov.com).

Why not?

Why not ask the question you’re afraid to ask? Why not disagree with the assumption everyone is supporting? Why not say the thing that keeps popping in your mind?

If we don’t express what we see as the truth, we are guaranteeing that things will not go well. There’s a reason you’re thinking these things. Speak up.

Why not?

Follow the money

In the movie “All the President’s Men,” a pivotal character repeatedly said, “Follow the money.” Of course, the money led to exposing the entire scandal.

Businesses invest money and resources into certain things, sometimes technology, sometimes machinery, sometimes design. Yet, those companies often fail to realize that those investments are part of their DNA, they represent what they most have passion about.

What does your company invest most of its time, money and energy into, and are you leveraging that?
