Speed to Mission… Central Union Mission, That Is
A group of our employees recently volunteered at the Central Union Mission located in Northwest D.C. Central Union Mission is operated by volunteers and staff who provide an overnight shelter for those in need. The Mission also provides other community programs, including summer camps, Operation Christmas Miracle, and food distribution efforts.
While serving the Mission, employees spent several hours cleaning and setting up the boarding rooms. By the end of the day, we noticed the need for more linens and clothing at the shelter. As consultants, we recognized this problem and immediately began exploring possible solutions to further contribute to the shelter’s mission. As a result, the company organized a donation drive to collect linens and clothing for the Central Union Mission during the month of April. Employees are saying they want to continue to support this ‘mission’ in the future.
Each month, our team celebrates our robust culture. April’s culture focus was to ‘Think of Others Before Ourselves’.
The experience at Central Union Mission perfectly embodied this culture element, as it showcased how any small deed – whether at work or in the community – can make a huge impact on others. And, we can apply our consulting skills while we are at it!
Community involvement is a large part of Arc Aspicio and our culture. As a company, we organize several community service events each year to give back to our community. Community service events are much like the work we perform as consultants. They provide us the opportunity to solve problems and provide guidance and assistance, just in a different way.
We carry out these events in a similar way to how we approach consulting. We use our Mission First approach, which leads us to focus on the organization’s strategy and goals and the results they want to achieve as we perform our projects. For example, by placing a strategic mission focus on our community, we prioritize our work based on the community’s needs. We use proven methods to execute events like our annual Search Dog awareness and fundraising event. We effectively manage our schedule, budget, quality, and risk to plan the most impactful events. And, most importantly, we are seeking to show measurable results in the community.
