MakeShift Launches #WhatReallyMatters Campaign to Support Local Communities
CALGARY, Alberta — MakeShift, a cloud-based employee scheduling and time tracking platform, is excited to announce the launch of its “#WhatReallyMatters” campaign which will support three key organizations with a focus on solving community crises impacting housing, labour, and healthcare.
The first organization MakeShift is supporting is the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society (SCCSS). MakeShift will donate all implementation fees from local businesses that sign-up for its award-winning employee scheduling app to SCCSS’s “Building Together” project. Over 1,100 families and their children on the Coast struggle with finding affordable housing every day. The “Building Together” project aims to deliver 34 housing units for women and children.
“We are excited to be part of the MakeShift campaign and grateful for the contribution of businesses such as MakeShift for their commitment to the health and wellbeing of the communities in which they work. The support from this initiative will help to increase affordable housing for women and women with children living on the Sunshine Coast,” said Catherine Leach, Executive Director, SCCSS. In Whistler, British Columbia, MakeShift is sponsoring the “Whistler Business Excellence Awards” in October and plans to help the Whistler Community Services Society with its goal of supporting 25,000 lives over the next 3 years.
MakeShift is also raising funds in support of the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. The company will match employee donations. All friends of MakeShift are welcomed to donate.
The #WhatReallyMatters campaign was born out of CEO, Adam Greenberg’s vision of business being a force of good in society. The idea was unanimously backed by MakeShift staff.
“Our team is spread out across Canada. As I travel to meet staff, clients, and partners, I see the challenges our communities face," said MakeShift CEO, Adam Greenberg. “Access to food, healthcare, jobs, and housing are important for a strong and vibrant community. The MakeShift team felt that we could do more. Our scheduling app helps businesses across healthcare, retail and other industries tackle the labour shortage by giving employees more control over their schedules. Flexible scheduling can make a huge difference with hiring and retention. And now by donating implementation fees to local communities via these organizations, we can do a little more to take on these other challenges. At the end of the day, that’s what really matters.”
The #WhatReallyMatters campaign will support various communities throughout the year. Local area businesses are invited to try MakeShift for free for fourteen days.
