Allianz Life Makes a Habit of Giving Back

Life insurance giant Allianz Life, based right here in Minneapolis, specializes in retirement solutions including annuities and life insurance policies.

Allianz Life’s giving program is amazing.

The higher-ups at this corporate giant have a lot of things figured out, and chief among them is how to get their employees involved in giving back.  They take their corporate social responsibility very seriously around here, which translates into lots of people having a great time!

One of the ways they give back is to schedule fun, interactive team building workshops with us.  This past February we did our popular Bike-A-Thon ™ Charity Team Building Workshop with a group of Allianz Life employees, and it was a blast!

The many ways of giving back…

This company gives year ’round!  And not only do they give…they get their employees involved in the giving, too.  Everyone plays a role (a familiar concept with us!) in making sure Allianz Life is taking care of its corporate social responsibility.

So in addition to the bicycles they assembled with us, employees of the insurance company also donate food items, clothing, and even more toys during the entire year.

In fact, look at these impressive stats from 2015 from the Allianz Life employee giving program:

  • they donated more than 3,600 toys (including the bicycles they assembled in our workshop)
  • they donated more than 22,000 pounds of clothing
  • they donated more than 24,000 pounds of food

Who’s your partner in giving back?

If, like Allianz Life, you have a partner organization you prefer to work with when sending out donations, we’ll be happy to work with them.  Just let us know during the initial consultation and we’ll make all the arrangements for the final ceremony, transfer of donated items, etc.

We can also work with your company if you donate via a 501(c) setup.  Just ask when you call to schedule your charity workshop. We’ll translate donations to dollars, working with your finance department to make sure everything goes smoothly.  Call today- we’ll get started!
