Colliers employees give back to community

Employees of Colliers International in Ohio recently volunteered their time at hospices and senior centers across the state of Ohio as part of their Building Up Communities program, a quarterly volunteer event that allows them to give back to local communities and charitable organizations.

Colliers is heralded as the second-most recognized commerical real-estate firm in the world and has more than 485 offices in 63 countries, but busy schedules don't keep employees from giving back and keeping their communities healthy. 

More than 50 volunteers from the the Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton offices helped their local communities by cleaning facilities, landscaping, setting up for meals and spending one-on-one time with residents. More than 15 volunteers from the Cincinnati office served lunch and played bingo with the residents of the Lincoln Heights Senior Center.
Colliers employees have previously volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House and foodbanks across the state.
Colliers provides its employees with the tools to be the change in their community and goes a step further by surveying which organizations are important to them.

“Community is one of our core values,” says Laura Day, Colliers' communications & PR manager for Ohio. “It’s something we hold near and dear to our hearts. We like to give employees the opportunity to give back.”
