We recently released our Winter 2018 Explorer and once again it’s filled with stories that show our commitment to our “Three C’s:” our company, clients and communities. When it comes to delivering the very best service, supporting one another and giving back to our local communities, our Team is elevating our game. Read ten of our favorite stories from this edition below!

Access Indy hurricane relief drive

1. Supporting communities across the country

In 2017, hurricanes had a long-lasting impact in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, but Access Team Members from around the country stepped up to lend a helping hand. The St. Louis branch donated their prize money from last year’s “Small Branch of the Year” award to the hurricane relief fund, and Access Indianapolis collected supplies for families in need.

Raising awareness for NBCF at ARMA Live!

2. Stepping it up for a good cause

Every year, members of the Access Team attend the ARMA Live! Conference to learn about the latest in information governance and records and information management (RIM). This year, we partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to raise awareness while we learned. We gave pedometers and pink ribbons to conference attendees that stopped by our booth, then we tracked their steps. Every step they took earned a donation to the NBCF. We’re proud to say we reached our goal of 500,000 steps and donated a total of $5,000!

NY Habitat for Humanity

The New York Metro branch came together to help a local veteran’s family, teaming up with the Habitat for Humanity Veterans Build Project to build a new home for the family.
