Park IP Gives Local Communities a Global Helping Hand
At Park IP Translations we are passionate about making a difference, in our work and in our giving. The global team at Park IP, a Welocalize company, is driven by quality, innovation, customer service and global teamwork, in our legal localization and translation work and in our charity work within our local communities. Each year we select a charity for a holiday donation in the name of our clients and employees. This year are a supporting the humanitarian work of Translators without Borders.
Park IP teams have spent time throughout the year working individually and together to support and raise money for local and global charities. In looking back at 2015, we thought we would share with you some of the charity work that we have participated in this year, including wearing pink, serving meals and sporting ugly Christmas sweaters for the greater good! Park IP is driven in our global company culture to do things differently. We are very proud of the fantastic charity work our global team members did in 2015.
Here are a some examples of Park IP Translations supported charities and events in 2015.
