Golden Valley Law Firm Recongized for Giving Garden
Golden Valley, MN (May 17, 2013) – Gardening is a proven method to grow employee, community and business relationships—at least for this Golden Valley law firm.
Gurstel Chargo P.A. is no ordinary law firm! Gurstel Chargo has been recognized as the first law firm who has partnered with and shares in the goals of The Twin Cities Corporate Giving Garden Network, providing hungry Minnesotans access to healthy food. This law firm is widely known for their retail and commercial collection practices, where they represent major lenders in the recovery of money. No doubt, you have a perception of a debt collector, now imagine debt collectors working side-by-side with attorney’s in a garden. Picture those same collector’s and attorneys delivering fresh garden produce to VEAP, a local organization that feeds the hungry and flowers to seniors at Sholom Home.
Is this hard to imagine? Well, that is one reason why Gurstel Chargo launched their garden program—Reap What You Sow (RWYS) in 2011--and is growing the effort again this year. Turns out, challenging perceptions is exactly what the firm set out to do!
The Minnesota State Horticulture Society, VEAP, Sholom Foundation, and Gurstel Chargo P.A. have teamed up in an effort that is indeed reaping much reward. For Gurstel Chargo P.A. the program was three-pronged: germinate our employee engagement and wellness initiatives, prune negative perceptions (of the industry), and root the firm within relevant community organizations.
In the end, the firm’s effort effectively demonstrates their commitment to their business philosophy Accountability Matters™.
In the words of CEO Todd Gurstel, “our business is fast paced and it is stressful. Our gardens are maintained by employee volunteers and taking time to de-stress and smell the flowers is exactly what we need.”
Gurstel Chargo, P.A. is a full service Creditors’ Rights law firm with offices in Minnesota, Arizona, Iowa and Nebraska. The firm is a business-focused firm with three business lines to include retail collections, commercial collections and financial recovery. The practice blend is structured to provide clients with sophisticated and occasionally unlikely solutions to their fiscally driven matters.
Gurstel Chargo recently launched social media sites. Let's get connected!
