The Benesch culture is really important to me. I know a lot of people go to work and that’s all it is – work. But at Benesch, it’s more than that. We all truly enjoy being around each other on a professional and personal level.

Summer of Service

This might be one of our employees’ favorite annual traditions. Empowered by our employee-driven Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team, Benesch offices across the country partner with organizations in their communities to coordinate a unique event and recruit staff, friends and family to participate.

From park clean-up to food pantry support, planting trees and even painting houses for disabled veterans, this program offers employees a chance to come together and do good for the communities they live in.
