What do these 3 have in common? Raritan employees! On a normal workday, Raritan makes software that helps make life easier for data center managers but every now and then they pick up power tools to help those who need a place to call home.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit volunteer organization that builds and rehabilitates homes for families in need of shelter. Habitat homes are given to these families in return for hours of their own labor and monthly mortgage payments financed by donations and affordable loans.
Raritan employees took time away from designing power monitoring and management software to hold both a bake sale and a car wash to collect donations for Habitat for Humanity. Each employee that participated donated their time and money to the foundation to help those less fortunate.
While this team’s usual 9-5 work day consists of crossing off items on to do lists and participating in meetings, I’m sure they would say that devoting a rainy day to building roofs over people’s heads is more rewarding.
