Riverbank Run 2019: SalesPad employees give back by moving forward

 In Company Culture

An eager team of SalesPad employees participated in the 42nd Annual Amway Riverbank Run on Saturday, May 11.

Over the years, the Riverbank Run has been a staple of SalesPad’s company culture, and this was the fifth time that SalesPad team members donned their running shoes and stepped out onto the streets of Grand Rapids to run for a cause.

Paul Deboer, Digital Operations Manager at SalesPad, says that community involvement is an important piece of SalesPad’s core values. “SalesPad has internal teams that focus on getting the employees involved in a lot of community activities, and that definitely influenced my decision to work here,” Deboer said. “SalesPad clearly cares about the Grand Rapids community.”
