70 Years, 70 Days, 70 Chances to Give Back

Reza Amirkhalili
This year marks Faithful+Gould’s 70th anniversary as an organization. In the Americas, we are excited to be celebrating this important milestone for our business by giving back to our local communities.

Since its founding in March 1947, Faithful+Gould has grown from a small quantity surveying firm into a world-leading, global project and program management consultancy, with 2,400 staff delivering our “Constructive Expertise” around the world. Our Americas region commands a network of 25 offices reaching from Canada to Brazil with more than 500 experienced team members who embody the positive, professional and collaborative culture we have created as a business.

In the Americas, and across Faithful+Gould worldwide, we consider giving back through service to be part of our corporate responsibility. We encourage all our employees to participate in service to improve the quality of life in our local communities.

That’s why we have launched a charitable initiative as part of our worldwide anniversary theme of “70 4 Seventy”. Our offices across the Americas are engaging in charitable efforts, with the goal of reaching 70 hours of service within 70 days. Our employees are participating in a wide range of local volunteer opportunities. Our hope as an organization is to not only drive our commitment to service and commemorate our anniversary, but allow for our staff to spend quality time together outside of the office to connect with their communities.

Our offices across the Americas are engaging in charitable efforts, with the goal of reaching 70 hours of service within 70 days.

This initiative officially kicked off on May 1, 2017, and will run through July 9, 2017. Already, our employees have engaged with food banks, animal shelters, park clean-up activities, among others. In the coming weeks, we will see a wide variety of charitable contributions from our people through service activities that are as diverse as our staff.

We are very excited about this effort and feel it captures who we are as a business, promoting community engagement and service. We believe that acting on these important elements of our business philosophy is the ideal way to celebrate 70 years of our commitment to excellence.
