More than 70 employees from Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, and their network of independent corporate licensee (ICL) offices rolled up their sleeves on April 26, 2008, as they participated in a Build-A-Bike team-building event to provide bikes for kids at Casa Familiar, a community-based organization in San Diego that serves as a resource for border community clients in areas of human services, community development and education.
The teambuilding day was part of a Cydcor-sponsored Promoting Owners Retreat event for top owners in the network of sales offices that Cydcor supports. Event attendees volunteered their free time to help Casa Familiar and make a positive difference in the lives of underprivileged children.
“Cydcor is proud to have sponsored this team-building day as part of a larger event. Helping those who are less fortunate not only feels good, it’s the right thing to do,” said Gary Polson, chief executive officer for Cydcor. “Just like the enthusiasm our nationwide sales force brings to our client for outsourced sales, the top sales office owners were excited to volunteer as we all realize the benefits of giving back to communities and making a positive difference.”
This is the first year that Cydcor included a philanthropic activity as part of the Promoting Owners Retreat, and it was a big success. Eight teams competed to win parts for the two bicycles they were responsible for building, which created healthy competition and fun. At the end of the build, the Casa Familiar recipients of the bikes came to the park to receive their gifts. This came as a surprise to the bike-builders and was a very emotional moment.
“Many of these children have never had bikes before and so this truly was one of the highlights of their life,” said Andrea Skorepa, President & CEO for Casa Familiar. “Having the support of businesses like Cydcor is invaluable for us to further our mission and develop brighter futures for children of this community.”
