Our APEX culture leaves ample opportunity for our team to engage in philanthropic activities. We enjoy giving back to our communities and how satisfying it is to know we’re helping others. At the same time, we’re keenly aware that what we cast forth in terms of altruism comes back to us in the form of many benefits we couldn’t otherwise imagine. Here are three ways our lives become richer for helping others:
- Build a Powerful Network: We never know who we might meet when we’re engaged in volunteering and supporting worthy causes. Our APEX professional growth model incorporates networking as a key to successful careers. Therefore, when we’re giving back through charities, we also increase our visibility with influential leaders who share common concerns for our community.
- Gain a Unique Education: There are lessons we learn when we give back that can’t be taught in any classroom. We might gain more awareness about an issue. Our skills, such as communication and empathy, are enhanced. As we’ve discussed in our APEX meetings, our team bonds also become stronger as we work as one for a good cause.
- Learn Creative Problem Solving: Since many charities have limited resources, we can learn to improvise and put our innovation to the test.
There are many ways we win when we give back to our communities and the world. Like us on Facebook to learn more about the rich benefits that come with philanthropy.
