November is a natural time for us at EMP&A to reflect and be thankful. It is not only Thanksgiving this week, but it was recently Veteran's Day. We strive to take time to give back to our local community and to veteran-owned small businesses, not only in November but throughout the year.
Our team and EMP&A grew this year, and our roster of clients grew as well. We began a new program to pay staff for a day of community service each quarter, and staff used this opportunity to work with several different groups that help feed those in need. I had the chance to work with World Central Kitchen several times, including helping to feed thousands of meals to police officers working overtime (see picture).
And we are continually thankful for our clients, some who just began working with us and others who have entrusted their brand protection to us for years; you make our work enjoyable and rewarding each and every day!
