After 18 years serving the communities along Florida's Emerald Coast, SimpleHR continues to focus on giving back through volunteerism, corporate philanthropy, and knowledge-based resources. Giving back is business as usual for SimpleHR and the people who work at the employee management company.
"The staff of SimpleHR is blessed to live, work, and play in an amazing community. We are honored to have the opportunity to give back by supporting those in need." - Bill Lindsley
With thousands of hours donated, collectively the people of SimpleHR have impacted the following charitable organizations: PAWS, Relay for Life, Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation, Sacred Heart Foundation, Northwest Florida State College Foundation, Rotary Clubs, All Sports Association, Taylor Haugen Foundation, Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation, Wuerffel Trophy Foundation, Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center, United for a Good Cause, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Children in Crisis, One Hopeful Place, American Association of Suicide Prevention, and Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast.
In addition to team members giving their time and talents to community organizations in need, the company hosts a monthly initiative - Jeans for a Cause. The money raised from employee participation is donated quarterly to local nonprofit organizations.
SimpleHR also serves as a supporter and advocate for local businesses through the donation of services, time, and resources with the Okaloosa Walton Workforce Development Board, Emerald Coast SHRM, Veterans and Transition Services Members, Destin Chamber of Commerce, Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce, Niceville Chamber of Commerce, and Walton County Chamber of Commerce.
Identified as a corporate core value, SimpleHR extended the meaning of "giving back" in support of local businesses as COVID-19 left many uninformed and unsure. At the onset of COVID-19, SimpleHR, created a response and resource hub to provide up-to-date, accurate, and timely information related to COVID-19 and its effects on its website SimpleHR.com
. Here, the company addressed issues such as Payroll Protection Program (PPP), CDC guidance, and workplace preparation. SimpleHR worked tirelessly to compile all of the available information, offering a landing page location for ease of use.
