Spirion employees recognized for taking local action during global pandemic

Spirion is honored to have been recognized by Tampa Bay Inno during their virtual 2020 Inno on Fire awards ceremony, held November 17, 2020. We are especially proud to receive a Coronavirus Heroes Blazer Award for our ‘This One’s On Us’ initiative to aid local restaurant workers so hard hit by the global pandemic.

Helping to feed those in need

Spirion launched a restaurant relief program in mid-April 2020 to raise funds to provide meals for restaurant employees, either to take home to their families or feed others in need.

Company employees participated in the program by donating a percentage of their paychecks to purchase meals from local eateries to give to the restaurant’s staff. Since the launch of the initiative, over $10,000 has been raised to help feed more than 800 restaurant workers and their families.

We believe ‘This One’s On Us’ represents the best of St. Pete—individuals and businesses coming together behind a common goal to help each other in a time of need. Spirion is committed to supporting our vibrant community and those in need, and we are grateful for our generous employees who joined the initiative to help us reach our goal.
