Vertafore Announces First Annual Week of Caring
Bothell, Wash. – Oct. 26, 2015 Vertafore®, the leading provider of software that transforms the business of insurance, today announced its first annual Week of Caring to give back to local communities. Vertafore’s 1,500 employees will have the opportunity to participate in over 30 hands-on volunteer events from Monday, October 26 to Friday, October 30, including: Red Cross CPR/AED training courses that teach critical skills needed during emergency situations; food and emergency supply drives that will help in the instance of natural disasters; and serving meals to people in need. This year’s theme of Disaster Preparedness was chosen because of its widespread impact on Vertafore employees and the communities in which they live and work. “We worked hard to find a relevant theme that has meaning to all of us,” said LuAnn Johnson, senior vice president and chief people officer at Vertafore. “We’ve been impacted as a country by a variety of natural events that have devastated many throughout the year. Because these sudden events are so prevalent, we want to make an impact by helping our communities respond faster and more completely during a time of urgent need.” For more information about Vertafore’s volunteer efforts, see below for an overview of Vertafore’s planned volunteer events and locations.
