Giving back is so valued at this insurance company that it gives workers extra paid time off for donating blood at the permanent on-site Red Cross center. Employees who “take pride” in working for a “good corporate citizen” even give to each other: Over three years, an optional payroll deduction has collected and paid $162,000 to staff in times of need.
