Giving Back

Corporate social responsibility is part of the fabric of growth[period]'s business and culture. The diversity of our employees, partners, and clients has provided us with key insights into the challenges and opportunities facing communities at every level, knowledge that has led us to conclude that partnering with non-profit groups and community organizations not only is good for the less fortunate and those that help them but also is good for business. As global interconnectivity continues to grow at a rapid pace, no one can afford to sit on the sidelines, and we try hard to practice what we preach. Our leadership is actively engaged in a number of charitable and community pursuits, ranging from working with wounded and disabled veterans to feeding the homeless, and sponsors frequent company-wide volunteer projects. growth[period] employees individually give generously of their talent, energy and passion to any cause that they deem worthwhile, and we embrace their passion and enthusiasm to make the world a better place, offering paid time off for charity work. Below are just a few of the many ways they make a positive impact.

growth[period] Supports the Sarah Frei Care Fund

November 2020: growth[period] is proud to support the Sarah Frei Care Fund. On July 30, 2020, Sarah and her friends were driving home from a trip to Bear Lake, ID when a drunk driver hit them head-on in Logan Canyon. With no cell service, they waited 45 minutes to an hour before an ambulance arrived. Sarah was life-flighted from Logan Regional Hospital to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. She was then transferred to the University of Utah Hospital because of the extent of her injuries. She was internally bleeding, had damage to her abdominal aorta, a broken back and spinal cord injuries at her T12 and L2 vertebrae, a broken ankle, and facial fractures. She has undergone several surgeries where she lost 30% of her intestines, had a back fusion from T12-L4, and had to have both legs amputated at mid-thigh.

growth[period] Supports RunTough for Team Owen 2020

July 2020: growth[period] is proud to support RunTough for Team Owen 2020. Until April 2020, Owen was a typical five-year-old. He loved kindergarten, ninjas, his scooter, and Legos. After some unusual behavior, like falling downstairs and walking into walls, an MRI showed a tumor in his brain stem and cerebellum, which was confirmed to be DIPG – a very rare (only 300 diagnoses a year in the United States and Europe) and aggressive brain cancer. The jab of a pediatric cancer diagnosis is severe. The uppercut of a zero-survival rate is an absolute knock out. A zero-survival rate is beyond devastating and truly unimaginable. DIPG patients and their families deserve and need so much more. Stronger research. Greater understanding. Increased funding. Learn more about the event at their website.
