Stantec says multiple teams of its Florida employees headed out to embark on the company’s fourth annual day of worldwide volunteerism on Sept. 21.
The team was among some 8,000 employees participating in Stantec in the Community Day, a total which includes the more than 175 volunteers in Florida, Stantec said in a news release. The events were in celebration of Stantec’s focus on giving back to the local community and in support of the firm’s promise to design with community in mind.
“Community is at the center of everything we do at Stantec,” said Fermin A. Diaz, Stantec’s Gulf Regional Leader said in a statement. “Stantec in the Community Day encourages our staff to support local causes and organizations. And, there is no better way to support our communities than through our personal involvement.”
