In Orem, Utah, Jive employees gave the gift of Christmas service this year. The company shared its Christmas cheer by donating hundreds of gifts to children through Sub for Santa.

“Tis the season,” said Jive Creative Development Manager, Jonathan Timothy. “Secret Santa programs are nothing new. But making someone’s Christmas a little brighter never gets old. This year, I had a teenage boy who wanted books. So, naturally, I got excited and got him eight books!”

Other employees proved just as generous. With over 400 employees excited to participate, Jive’s HR department had a difficult time keeping Angel tags on the company Christmas trees. “I had to print out pages of tags multiple times,” said HR Administrator, Allison Talbot. “Moments after I’d put more Sub for Santa names on the tree, employees had already grabbed them all.”

“We’ve supported United Way’s Sub for Santa for four years,” said Paul Thatcher, Director of Human Resources. “Year after year, I’m humbled by the generosity of our employees who provide beautiful Christmases to hundreds of families all over Utah.”

Sub for Santa is only one way the company has given back in recent months. Last August, Jive announced its 10-year anniversary, with plans for 10 service projects, one for each year the company has been in business.

Recently, Jive employees donated over 1,800 books to Bonneville Elementary School. Employees also collected hundreds of much-needed items for refugees.

“Jive has always focused on service. We’re really enjoying celebrating this milestone by making a difference in our community,” said John Pope, Jive CEO.” We want our employees to remember this year as the best one of their career—a year where they got out of the office and made a big difference in the community.”
