Crawford Technologies announced in August 2014, they will be offering employees full pay for doing one full day of volunteer work annually at a charity of their choice. This is one of many initiatives CrawfordTech has implemented as the company strives to become one of the best employers in North America.

"This is a win-win situation for Crawford Technologies because volunteering strengthens morale, builds on skills and contributes to professional development," said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies. "We look forward to supporting our employees with their individual efforts to make this world a better place."

As a recipient of this added benefit, Carol Steinbock is a longtime volunteer within the Larimer County Sheriff Department on the Victim Advocate Team. This team provides assistance to victims 24 hours, 7 days a week responding to all locations. In addition to the support provided to victims, they inform them of their legal rights afforded to them under title 24 in the Colorado Statutes. The Victim Response Team responds to not only crime victims, but also assists by providing services in several situations such as suicides, unattended deaths, family problems, fires, missing persons, death notifications and community crisis such flooding and wildfires.

Carol Steinbock said “As I reflect back on the flooding in Colorado in the Fall of 2013, I know just how much the community depends on Corporate Community Support. I know firsthand how much a community in crisis needs volunteer support. I was able to assist the community with other first responders to assist hundreds of displaced people and pets. Because so many people work during the week it is hard to get volunteer time completed during the work week. With this new employee benefit, I am empowered to help my community during a normal workweek. I am grateful to work with a company that recognizes the value of community support”
