Efficient Business Travel
Description of Action: 
We hire local staff and contractors when in person help is needed. We hire completely remote/virtual contractors when the work does not need to be done in person. We also prioritize local events and networking opportunities over opportunities that may involve more travel. We also choose to send one member of the team, rather than the entire team.

Adopt a Cause or Project in your Community
Description of Action: 
We support the Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills. We volunteer to assist with their bi-annual Rummage Sale. This sale helps with their fundraising efforts and further their mission. From our point of view, we are also assisting them with keeping thousands of pounds of usable item out of the trash and landfill.
