The Great Give symbolizes the Armanino culture of teamwork and collaboration. For its employees, the Great Give is part of what makes the firm a great place to work because it provides an opportunity for each employee to take a day off and use it to give back to their own communities where they live and do business. In the process, each employee and the firm create closer ties and stronger bonds with the people and leaders of Bay Area communities.
Activities for the “Great Give” have ranged from building repairs and classroom teaching appearances to landscaping and serving food to the homeless.
