CAREDAYS Annual National Initiative
Companies That Care Day is an annual national event that encourages employers to highlight and expand their employee and community initiatives, and recognize the people who make their companies successful. CAREDAYS brings individuals and employers together to collaboratively address a significant societal issue that is undermining the well-being of our communities. Organizations are encouraged to jump-start and expand their activities that reflect the 10 Characteristics, foster a people-supportive work environment and strengthen the local community. The philosophy behind CAREDAYS is this: “If we all do a little, we can truly accomplish a lot.”
Companies That Care Day is celebrated on the third Thursday of every March.
All employers are encouraged to participate in Companies That Care Day and the national CAREDAYS initiative. There are no specific eligibility requirements. Participating employers represent the diversity of organizations that care - large corporations, small businesses, service firms, publicly held and privately owned organizations, government entities, health care organizations, not-for-profits, academic institutions, and others.
The only costs associated with celebrating Companies That Care Day are any costs an organization might incur to implement the activities it plans for the Day.
Other Companies That Care Day Celebration Activities:
In addition to participating in the annual CAREDAYS initiative, companies may celebrate Companies That Care Day by organizing activities and events that integrate the 10 Characteristics of Socially Responsible Employers more fully into their work environment. Each organization may plan customized activities that make the Day meaningful to them and responsive to their development or recognition needs.
