HOPE stands for Helping Others Persevere and Excel, and Next Level Performance’s HOPE Week has been adapted from the New York Yankees’ initiative by the same name. Each year, we dedicate time and resources to helping our neighbors and improving our community. HOPE Week provides a meaningful opportunity for every member of our team to get involved and make a difference, and reflects our Next Level Performance mission: To help people and organizations dig deeper, reach higher, and attain the next level.
In 2017, we partnered with the Children’s Specialized Hospital in our home city of New Brunswick. The hospital serves children with many long-term challenges, including traumatic brain injury and severe autism. We provided motivating window boxes for therapy, shopped for the therapists’ wish list, and created Activity Kits for kids. We also created healthy Weekend Snack Packs and Welcome Kits for parents, as well as provided a continental breakfast for families and staff. We even brought our own kids to the office to create colorful paintings and messages of hope for the hospitalized children. Additionally, we ran a food drive for Elijah’s Promise, a local charity with which we partner annually, and ran a coin drive – with funds matched by the company – for New Brunswick’s Ronald McDonald House to support a families with hospitalized children.
Fun at the Office!
From Cinco de Mayo to our end of year party, we take time out from a busy schedule to have some fun with our colleagues! These events are important to our company culture because we know that social relationships and community go a long way to building the kind of community where people thrive. The connections we make over a company lunch help us to be collaborative when we’re working together on projects.
Organizations We Support
Through employee donations, company match, and various activities throughout the year, we are proud to support many of our local non-profit organizations.
