Baird associates working outdoors during Baird Gives Back week.

BizTimes Milwaukee recently featured Baird in a story on lessons from area businesses that have boosted their philanthropic efforts.

Each May, the firm hosts Baird Gives Back, a week dedicated to community service hosted at Baird locations nationwide. This year, more than 2,500 Baird employees volunteered to provide more than 7,700 hours of community service. As BizTimes noted, “That’s a sharp increase compared to the 1,800 employees who volunteered 5,866 hours of their time in 2022.”

Current ARG leaders and Baird associates Rachel Berkowitz and Ellie O’Neil were interviewed for the story:

“Our CEO is out there doing the exact same opportunities as us during the week,” said Berkowitz. “I think when you see that type of commitment from the top down, we see associates saying they have no excuse not to be there.”
