Pay IT Forward
"Pay IT Forward" is an employer/employee matching contribution program that offers High Point Networks’ employees the opportunity to make contributions to charitable organizations of their choice. This year, which was the fourth year of the program, the company's employees made contributions to more than 36 different charities, foundations and non-profit organizations totaling $48,750. Employees are encouraged to support a charitable cause that is personally meaningful to them, which included schools and churches, as well as local, regional and national organizations.
High Point Networks believes that vibrant, healthy communities have strong charitable and educational organizations. These are supported by the volunteer time and financial contributions of community citizens and local businesses. The company understands the importance of a high quality of life to a healthy business environment.
High Point Networks is a leader in business and in the communities they serve. They empower their employees to stand up for a cause which often inspires others to get involved.
"We believe that character is one of our strongest attributes, and part of character is observing the needs of those around you," said Tom McDougall, President/CEO of High Point Networks. "Contributing to organizations and community groups that our team cares about enables High Point Networks to promote a culture of character and build shared pride in the company’s role in the community."
Owners look forward to watching the growth of this program in future years.
"High Point Networks had another successful year in 2016, and we are inspired by the opportunity to 'Pay IT Forward’," McDougall said.
