Trustify runs in accordance with the principles of Conscious Capitalism. We will be more profitable and effective because business decisions value the entire stakeholder chain.
Last month, our team in Arlington volunteered part of their Wednesdays down at Martha’s Table, helping with food prep for their daily hot meal program called “Back Door at Martha’s Table.” From chopping ingredients to packing up delivery boxes and cleaning up afterwards, the team donated around 60 hours of their time to help feed our less fortunate neighbors in the DC area.
For over 30 years, Martha’s Table has worked to strengthen families and communities through educational programs, providing food, clothing and additional support to families.
When we founded Trustify in 2015, we wanted to be good by doing good, and serve the greatest number of people and communities that we can. Our Good Works program is a part of that. Our private investigators have donated their time on a pro bono basis to organizations like Becky’s Fund and the Midwest Innocence Project to help with their surveillance and research needs.
And for our team here in Arlington, we started our “8 For 8” program. For every 8 hours of time that they donate on behalf of Trustify at organizations like Martha’s Table, they receive a full paid day outside the offices to use at the non-profit of their choice.
Trustify runs in accordance with the principles of Conscious Capitalism. We believe that our business will be more profitable and effective because we make business decisions that value the entire stakeholder chain. We want to be good by doing good, and to serve the greatest number of people and communities that we can. Our Good Works are an expression of those values.
When Jen and I started Trustify, we did so on the premise that it would have a social mission, be technology driven and built by the most talented and diverse team. Our staff is made up of 70% female employees, and close to half of the team identifies with a minority group. We employ people from different countries, different ethnicities and with different orientations.
