Firm Observes Annual Founder’s Day with Acts of Service
Clearsulting has turned five. The management consulting firm, founded in 2015, celebrated its annual Founder’s Day last week with a now-familiar structure: morning service activities to give back to local communities and afternoon PTO to recognize the hard work and dedication of Clearsulting team members.
Previously, Clearsulting team members have volunteered together and in person on Founder’s Day. This year, the day’s activities looked different due to the ongoing pandemic. The day’s programming was organized by Clearsulting Cares, which drives the firm’s service initiatives throughout the year. Hudson Ozello, who serves as Lead for Clearsulting Cares, explains that he and his leadership team vetted service opportunities that met COVID-related needs while also providing a safe environment: “We curated three options that team members could participate in either from home or through organizations with clear COVID-related protocols – giving blood through the American Red Cross, donating food to a local pantry, and mailing cards to brighten someone’s day. It was important to balance safety while also doing our part to meet needs exacerbated by COVID-19, such as a blood shortage, food insecurity, and feelings of isolation and anxiety.”
Frankie Strollo, another member of the Clearsulting Cares leadership team, is thrilled with the engagement level on Founder’s Day. “We randomly assigned everyone to a team named after one of our core values – Grit, Growth, Balance, Teamwork, and Accountability – and awarded participation points for each activity,” she explains. “The competitive element generated engagement and camaraderie even though we weren’t able to volunteer together in person this year.” The core value teams jockeyed for the lead throughout Founder’s Day with Team Accountability ultimately winning the competition.
Clearsulting CEO & Founder Marc Ursick says, “My fondest memories over the past five years are all ‘people memories’ – office memories, client team rooms, conferences, all-hands meetings.” He says he is proud of his team for making a difference for the people in their local communities on Founder’s Day, and he looks forward to continued leadership by Clearsulting Cares to streamline and sustain efforts to give back throughout the year.
