To celebrate our 50th anniversary, Schlesinger Associates, launched an internal campaign we called ‘50 for 50’. During the month of August our goal was for our employees to volunteer 50 hours of their time to celebrate 50 years of Schlesinger. We are excited to announce that our teams surpassed the goal and reached over 210 hours. At Schlesinger we are passionate about giving back to our communities and we are very proud of our employees for their contributions.
We wanted to share some of the events we participated in, and maybe you saw us there.
