Why Giving Back is Part of our Culture

Novel, United Way.jpgHere at Riverside Technical Services, giving back is part of who we are. We believe that businesses have a duty to serve not only their customer base but the communities in which they do business as well.  All of our team members are active in local groups, charities, and organizations. It’s not just something we do; it’s part of who we are.

At the end of last year, we were acquired by Novel Engineering, an engineering service provider to the software and electronic industry. We are an Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) whose engineering staff is comprised of software, electrical, and systems engineers.

One tradition that Riverside has had as a company was doing a United Way raffle during our annual Christmas party.  To help bring the two companies together, we held a combined Christmas party this past year.  We made our tradition of doing the United Way raffle known and it spoke directly to our passion of giving back. 

Giving to others is a great way to not only help your community but to build camaraderie within your business. Bringing this tradition over from the merger has helped bring both our organizations together. Not only that, we are proud to help support the United Way in our community, together.
