As Emerio approaches our 15-year anniversary later this summer, we are incredibly thankful for our team, clients, and opportunities to perform meaningful work in our communities. In true Emerio fashion, we have decided to express our gratitude through 15 acts of kindness throughout the year.
Follow along with us all year as we volunteer, donate, honor colleagues and community members, care for our neighbors, protect our environment, and act globally to celebrate 15K.
Gratitude: One of our initiatives that will be celebrated all year long is gratitude for our staff and community members. We started this off in February by awarding our first MVP award to Sr. Civil Designer Kyung Han. Starting with Emerio in 2004, Kyung is one of our first employees and is well loved by our team for his expertise, kindness, positive attitude, and willingness to help. This award was quickly dubbed the “Kyung Award” and will be presented to future MVPs who, like Kyung, exemplify Emerio’s culture.
Kindness Closet: Additionally, we started a “kindness closet” stocked with goodies and snacks. Staff are encouraged to express gratitude and appreciation for team members who go above and beyond with a thank you note and treat.
Adopt-a-Park: Emerio has adopted Hyland Woods Natural Area for the 2019/2020 season. Throughout 2020, our team will be improving the park by removing invasive plants, planting native vegetation, and providing litter pickup and trail maintenance. We were lucky to have nice weather for our first work party in February!
Honduras Well Projects: Introduced to the Emerio team by our Billing and Accounts Receivable expert Nicole Hartenstein (who sits on their board), we are currently collecting donations to support the Honduras Well Projects. Created out of a vision shared with O.R. Agua Viva Internacional (a non-profit in LaCeiba Honduras) that realizes thousands of people remain in northern Honduras without a clean, safe water source, HWP’s goal is to raise enough funds to provide AVI with the equipment and resources needed to start up two well drilling teams.

Stay tuned…more to come!
