At Planview, we believe in our capacity for good and building a connected future for everyone to thrive in. That’s why during the week of October 24th through October 28th, Planview employees around the world united for our “Week of Giving” as part of our Force for Good initiative. During this week, Planview encouraged employees to spend up to eight work hours volunteering and giving back to their local communities by investing their time in causes they believe in. Our teams went above and beyond in their communities and had a great time doing so! Individuals and teams from the United States, India, Canada, Israel, UK, France, Germany and Australia invested thousands of hours showing up for those in need and making the world just a little bit brighter.
