At Intuit, the proud maker of TurboTax, QuickBooks and Mint, we’re on a mission to power prosperity around the world, especially for those who need it most. The Prosperity Hub program is part of our new initiative that is accelerating the company’s commitment to making a positive impact on the world through its products and people. It is designed to spark durable economic growth to regional communities, in support of the small business and entrepreneurship ecosystem, through job creation and access to training. In October 2019, we announced the expansion of this program globally, starting in Corner Brook, Newfoundland & Labrador.
Intuit’s mission is to Power Prosperity Around the World. We do this by creating a customer obsessed organization dedicated to building capabilities that address the financial challenges consumers face today. In August, fifty Canadian employees in Consumer Group immersed themselves in a day-long, galvanizing experience where they reflected and learned about what it will take to transform the way they work, partner and collaborate in order to attack the root causes preventing our customers from making ends meet.
With the company’s bold goals for 2025, the ProConnect Group set out to raise the bar on their accountability to these goals and to ensure that everyone on the team is aligned to a more deliberate set of behaviours. Therefore, the team planned a one day experience in October for all sites where the focus was on both the “what” and the “how” for this acceleration as a united team, all accountable to each other.
At Intuit, “We Care and Give Back” is not only a key company value, but it's a practice all of our employees are encouraged to undertake in both their work and home lives. As a company, Intuit helps communities directly while we also have policies in place that empower our talent to support causes that matter most to them. We provide all full-time employees with 32 hours per calendar year that they can take away from work to participate in volunteer causes of their choice.This year, both our Edmonton and Mississauga employees participated in our third annual “Week of Service,” an entire week dedicated to employees taking time from work to participate in prearranged volunteer opportunities.
