Celebration reflects company culture of investing in and supporting the local community
LISLE, IL March 20, 2019 — Today, Brindley Engineering, one of Chicago’s world-class engineering firms in capital & maintenance projects, reliability initiatives, and construction solutions celebrated a successful 2018 with a company-wide visit to a local charity, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), in Aurora, Illinois. The company sets annual performance goals (or “KPIs”) around growth, talent acquisition, retention, customer outcomes, social responsibility, awards & publications, customer diversity, and more. All 2018 goals were exceeded so the company celebrated by giving back.
“We love our community and the more we invest, the more connected we feel,” said founder and president, Tom Brindley. “When we have success, it’s a no brainer to turn to our community and give back what we can. Our entire company participated in a successful 2018 and in this event – we are proud to feel connected to such a great initiative in our own backyard.”
FMSC is a nonprofit dedicated to providing nutritious meals to children worldwide. The Brindley Engineering staff packed 236 boxes of dried food, equaling 50,112 meals, or enough to feed 137 kids for an entire year. This event is one example of Brindley Engineering’s dedication to corporate social responsibility. In 2019 so far, the company has also raised money for the Lurie Children’s Hospital and for the Muscular Dystrophy Association at a charity bowling event sponsored by a local client. The total raised at the event was over $100,000.
