Employee empowerment: Pay It Forward
Pay It Forward is one of our most popular charitable efforts, and is inspired by the movie about a boy who does good deeds and asks that recipients “pay it forward” by doing good for others. CohnReznick gives employees a little extra in their paychecks once a year with the hope that each person will donate to causes that are making a difference in our communities. Since 2007, employees have “paid it forward” to 100+ causes, organizations, and individuals.
In recognition of its importance to our community service efforts, in 2017, the timing of the Pay It Forward program was moved from December to October 10th to coincide with CohnReznick Day – the day we set aside each year to celebrate our people, our clients, and our communities.
