With the introduction of The Spearhead Give Back Program this Fall, we reached out to Heather Fritzsche, CEO/Co-founder, about her own personal causes. Heather understands the fact that giving back to the community not only builds team morale but increases overall cooperation, both essential factors for business growth. Read below to learn more about our conversation with Heather.
What volunteer organizations are you involved with or have deep meaning to you?
What’s your volunteer style? Are you the person who ends up helping at the event or the project organizer?
Helping – Running my two businesses take up a lot of time, so I don’t have a lot of bandwidth to organize events anymore. But whenever I can show up and donate my time, I do.
Why do you choose to give back?
Because I am able and everyone who is able should.
What excites you about starting The Spearhead Group Give-Back Program?
I say it all the time, that companies have more responsibilities than just paying salaries and turning a profit. Companies have tremendous resources available to make the world a better place, and Spearhead has reached the size where we should be carrying our weight in terms of making social impact. I’m happy to make this first step in supporting our team to contribute to the causes that are important to them, and I look at it like a first step on a long journey of philanthropy for Spearhead.
