Being Part of Our CommUnity!

Being part of something bigger than ourselves, including our own jobs, can make such a difference all around! I’ve read several places where the importance of wage is not the highest overall deciding factor in job search anymore. People want more of an experience & know they are making a difference.


SERVPRO is often asked to consider a monetary sponsorship. With so many great causes & possibilities, we consider the passions of the people who work for us when committing. Employees appreciate that we support areas of their life outside of work that matter. Examples include the Special Olympics- Polar Plunge, donations to the Humane Society, House of Hope, Northeast Iowa Food Bank, and school fairs. To support business networking, funds are extended to include educational events, golf outings, and realtor activities. We enjoy being part of a diverse collection of communities.


Natural connections in B2B make it easy to say YES when asked to volunteer. Staff is involved with the Red Cross activities including sitting on a community board and making & delivering cookies to first responders.

BBQ Social Jar:

Find a penny, pick it up, all day, have good luck…Crew Chief Mikey labeled a pickle jar and started filling it with loose change. This urged co-workers to throw in their 2 cents and fund a social BBQ for the team. Pooling together to celebrate working together feeds a feeling of unity.

Reel/Real Relationships:

Getting to know a person in a real way is encouraged at SERVPRO of Black Hawk County. In a REEL way / REAL Relationships is the foundation of our work.  Start by drawing a person in (reel) by asking good questions and listening. Adding personal content & sharing experiences establishes a friendship. Real relationships are developed when we take time to see people and put them first.  


When Scott, the boss, asks the employees for a + 1, he is referring to ONE extra step someone could do to make our service one step above the expected. He challenges everyone to find a particular way to make their day. When people experience more than they expect, a trickle effect happens and most often they will do something nice for someone else. What goes around, comes around! 

Joining together in a variety of ways, showing & extending care,
creates the Unity in CommUnity.
