Veridata Insights has been privileged to have experienced significant growth over recent years. Recognizing our good fortune has fueled Veridata’s desire to help those less fortunate and less privileged.
Spearheading a “giving back” initiative, Veridata Insights’ employees flocked to food banks to donate much needed food items.
Being a global and fully remote company, and not having one exclusive local community to serve, Veridata embraced this factor by adopting each team member’s local community as our own. Veridata staff across North America and worldwide visited their local food banks to drop off a range of non-perishable items.
Jami Pulley, Veridata Insights CEO commented: “Veridata has always had the heart and desire to give back as we grow the company. Over the last couple of years we only provided monetary support to certain charitable organizations. This year we want to give back in other ways as well.”
