ID Together: Corporate Citizenship Strategy
At ID Technologies, we embody the true spirit of corporate social responsibility, and we are committed to the highest standards of corporate citizenship. Our culture and values are rooted in service, integrity and taking personal responsibility for our actions, outcomes and reputation. At ID Technologies, we vow to:
- Go Beyond
- Do Right
- Be Accountable
- Show Decency
- Keep Perspective
This commitment is reflected in both how we do business and how we serve our customers and community.
Our Operating Principles.
Every partnership we embark upon should align with our core purpose of empowering people to collaborate more effectively in delivering vital public services. To that end, our corporate citizenship work will be guided by the following principles:
- We aim to establish long-term partnerships with the organizations we work with, with a view to achieving sustainable positive impact.
- We seek opportunities that emphasize the power of teamwork, empathy and partnership in achieving positive social impact.
- We take care to learn from partner organizations how we can contribute most effectively to their work around measurable outcomes.
- We make financial contributions where appropriate, but our preference is to lend expertise, human and technical resources to get things done.
- We seek partners who will educate our people on the work that they do and why it is important.
The Causes We Support.
In keeping with this goal, ID Technologies has developed a program to help ensure we direct our resources where the most impact will be made. As a leader in our industry, we have a great responsibility to give back to our communities and to focus our attention, whether it be through monetary support or voluntary commitment efforts, on initiatives that will better our communities.
We will focus our corporate citizenship efforts on the following two organizations:
Catch a Lift Fund (CAL)
Founded in memory of Army Cpl. Chris Coffland following his death in Afghanistan in 2009, the Catch A Lift Fund’s mission is to provide combat wounded veterans with personalized fitness, nutrition and wellness grants, enabling them to heal through physical fitness and mental wellbeing. Since its inception in 2010, the Catch A Lift Fund (CAL) has provided over 5,000 fitness grants to wounded veterans across the U.S. Along with gym memberships and adaptive home gym equipment, CAL provides personalized workout plans dependent on the veteran’s goals and injuries, peer support networking and Fitness Career Education Courses for veterans who wish to further their fitness commitment and give back to other vets in the program. To date, veterans in the CAL program have lost weight, dropped medications, increased their overall feelings of wellness, reestablished relationships with family and friends, and re-integrated themselves into their communities through fitness.
