EY demonstrates its commitment to building a better working world

SACRAMENTO, Calif.--()--Mayor Kevin Johnson issued a proclamation recognizing this past Friday as ‘EY Connect Day’ in Sacramento as more than 75 EY professionals left their laptops at the office to volunteer throughout the community. It’s all part of ‘EY Connect Day’ which gives employees nationwide time off so that they might give back to their communities.

“Spending a day together in service to others helps create a foundation for high performing teams, and gives us a way to connect, to communicate and to work together toward a shared purpose: to build a better working world.”

“Our flexible culture allows our people to volunteer throughout the year, but on EY Connect Day our people come together across the country on the same day to strengthen our firm and our communities,” said CJ Obmann, Ernst & Young LLP Managing Partner for Sacramento. “Spending a day together in service to others helps create a foundation for high performing teams, and gives us a way to connect, to communicate and to work together toward a shared purpose: to build a better working world.”

EY Connect Day projects in Sacramento this year included Habitat for Humanity and the Placer County Food Bank. Each year, Ernst & Young LLP professionals throughout the West Coast volunteer more than 19,000 hours of their time to nonprofit organizations in their communities.
