Community Involvement

“Doing the right thing” extends to our communities, too.

I’m Jay Cohen, or Dr. Jay, as those at Signature know me. As founder of this company, I’m enormously proud of our many accomplishments. No one knows better than I do the scope of what we achieve on a daily basis. But not all our contributions get recognized by our clients or with national awards.

For example, there’s the employee who held the hand of an elderly victim after a car crash that happened just outside our Massachusetts office. There’s the extra push provided by the office to make sure a candidate who’d previously experienced seizures finally got the job he so desperately wanted. And what about the salary our South Florida office paid out of its own pockets when a consultant quit his old job to accept a new position that was later withdrawn.

My point is, sometimes it’s those seemingly small things we do that are the greatest measure of our success. Whether it’s growing mustaches to support prostate cancer research, playing golf for SIDS prevention or giving blood for the local chapter of the Red Cross, we encourage our employees to support their communities, and they’re always eager to respond.

Here are a few more of the many worthwhile causes we’ve championed over the years:

Wounded Warriors

Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP) exists to honor and empower veterans who incurred service-related injuries on or after September 11, 2001.

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots began in 1947, when a group of Marine Reservists collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children. The organization has distributed over 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children.
