FTI’s culture is led by the 4 Cs: Core Values, Commitment, Compassion, and Charity.  Charity is the FTI 4th C, loving your neighbor in times of need, supporting our veterans, and helping children.  During these uncertain times of great need, FTI has made a couple of responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We have supported local food banks in our office locations, and we have given support to the First Responders through the Troopster organization in Virginia.

Military nonprofit, Troopster, is poised to help America’s COVID-19 front line heroes by sending PPE medical essential kits.
The outreach plans to raise enough contributions to send 50,000 medical kits containing PPE equipment, protein bars, snacks, and other items to Covid-19 caretakers across the country.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Awareness month. During this time, Virginia Beach CASA sponsors the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign, partnering with local businesses, organizations and individuals throughout Hampton Roads to bring community awareness to the needs of abused and neglected children. https://www.virginiabeachcasa.org/pinwheel

The pinwheel is the national symbol for child abuse prevention. The pinwheel’s whimsical and carefree attributes serve as a reminder of the great childhoods we want for all children. By planting pinwheels on the lawns of local businesses and residences, we rally together to show solidarity in our commitment to keeping children safe and free from abuse and neglect.

How is FTI involved?

For the second year in a row, FTI is supporting VB CASA across Hampton Roads as a Presenting Sponsor for the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign. FTI’s sponsorship helps VB CASA to continue to spread awareness, train, and support VB CASA in their mission to recruit, train, and supervise competent volunteers dedicated to advocating for the needs of abused and neglected children currently in court proceedings. VB CASA’s work promotes safe, permanent homes for all children and seeks to educate the community concerning the needs of abused and neglected children.

Last night, November 7, 2019, FTI was honored to be named as the Dayton Business Journal’s 2019 Community Supporter Business of the Year.   The Dayton Business Journal hosts the award event every year in Dayton’s Schuster Center.  This black-tie gala brings the local business community together for a night of fellowship in order to honor the achievements of local businesses in the Dayton community.

FTI’s company culture is governed by our beliefs: Core Values, Commitment, Compassion, and Charity (the 4 Cs).  FTI focuses its corporate culture and passion on the motto of the 4th C, “Love Thy Neighbor.”  The company and its employees are committed to caring for and supporting the communities in which they live and work and where our offices exist.  (Pictured to the left is CEO Ron Shroder with fellow employees who participate in the 4th C representing the many others who serve at FTI.)

FTI’s 4th C efforts in the local Dayton area were catalysts for the nomination of Community Supporter Business of the Year.  Through FTI’s 4th C Committee, which governs the charity aspects of FTI, the company supported numerous efforts intended to positively affect the Dayton community.  The 4th C supported a Dayton Strong T-shirt Campaign from which all the proceeds went to help those affected by the Memorial Day Tornadoes and Oregon District Shooting.  One of the most exciting 4th C efforts in the Dayton area is the participation and funding of the Dayton Honor Flight.  Employees volunteered to support Dayton Honor Flight with more than 40 Guardians and by funding an entire flight of over 110 veterans this year.  This event has become a highlight and pinnacle for the activities of the 4th C, as it brings together employees from across the country.

It was an honor for FTI to be one of the three nominees for this award, and a wonderful surprise to be named the Community Supporter Business of the Year.  FTI is honored by this award.  Click here to see CEO Ron Shroder’s acceptance speech on behalf of the FTI employees who volunteer their time and resources for the 4th C.
