Today is Companies That Care Day
Today is national “Companies That Care Day” – highlighting all of the companies that give back to their communities, their employees, and causes near and dear to their mission. We at Burlington Labs are proud to count ourselves among that group, and grateful to our customers for making it possible for us to do so.
Our founders pledged, the very first year Burlington Labs existed, to give back at least 10% of pre-tax profits every year to support the community. There were definitely years, early on in Burlington Labs’ history, when anyone who looked at the company books would have questioned (and did question) whether that was the best business decision. But in the minds of our founders, there was no question that it was the right decision.
Being accountable and having high integrity are two major tenets of successful recovery, and Burlington Labs lives by those principles too. Which means following through on a commitment to help others, even when it’s not easy to do it.
Today, we’re fortunate enough to be able to be major sponsors of projects that help erase the stigma of addiction and provide support for those in recovery. And today, on national “Companies That Care Day,”
we say thank you to everyone who chooses to do business with Burlington Labs for your drug testing needs. By supporting us, you also support stronger communities, healthier individuals, and brighter futures for those in recovery.
