Philanthropic initiatives have always been a strong measure of social conscience among today’s corporations. According to the Philanthropy Network, “individuals, bequests, foundations and corporations gave an estimated $471.44 billion to U.S. charities in 2020. Total charitable giving grew 5.1% measured in current dollars over the revised total of $448.66 billion contributed in 2019. Adjusted for inflation, total giving increased 3.8%.” And Intelligent Audit, a world-class freight bill audit and analytics provider, was among those giving to others through its recent efforts to incentivize people inside and outside the organization to exercise for a common goal of helping others.

What Did the Intelligent Audit Team Think of the Event?
Quality of life is a big focus at Intelligent Audit. “We work to live not live to work,” Chief Executive Officer Hannah Testani said.
“Everyone is busy, but we need time to get away from our desks and focus on our health, both physically and mentally. Work-life balance is necessary for sustaining growth and employee retention. Culture starts from the top and even as we continue our rapid growth that culture is still intact. Happy employees will go above and beyond to make customers happy.”
Testani’s words were echoed by the enthusiasm shared by in-house team members too, including Richard Perry, VP of Strategic Accounts, and Andrew Simcox, Sales & Marketing team member, “It was exciting to work with our team to give something back to the masses. We spend so much time focusing on trying to help individual shippers and trying to overcome the chaos of the day-to-day that it is easy to forget we are all on this journey together. I’m happy to have participated in this event, and I look forward to it in the future,” Perry said.
Simcox also added, “Over four months, it’s been a real pleasure to see how much our team was able to improve not only the lives of others but to improve their individual health through this event.”
