Do you love where you work? At Heart of Florida United Way we do! Officially ranked as one of Central Florida’s 2014 Best Places to Work by the Orlando Business Journal, we want to share the top 5 reasons why we LIVE UNITED every day.
1. Sense of humor
United Way searches for employees that not only value our passion for our core values – education, income and health – but are hardworking individuals that are not afraid to have a sense of humor. We, as a company, take after our CEO Robert H. (Bob) Brown when it comes to finding humor in the workplace. We believe in coming together as a team to solve problems in our community, having as much fun as possible along the way. We take our work very seriously, but don’t take ourselves too seriously.
At United Way we have a unique opportunity to partner with agencies in Central Florida to create change in our community. With each partner agency specializing in one of our core values we can collaborate and create solutions to help people live a stable life.
We have developed a “Live Healthy” committee to educate and encourage employees on healthy lifestyles and fitness. Joining into teams helps our employees know that you don’t have to go healthy alone. Through team building activities, fun competitions and informational seminars we as company not only teach health, but truly live it.
4. Volunteer Hours
One of our best perks? Paid volunteer LIVE UNITED hours. We allow our employees to volunteer for any group or organization they wish during office hours. We encourage our employees to give back to the community and our partner agencies and this allows them to do just that, without the conflict of finding time.
5. We love what we do!
At United Way you get the fulfillment of knowing you are changing lives with the best collaborative, team-oriented workplace in Central Florida!
