Where we work

At Benevity, we have developed a Community First approach that we design our people's experience around with goals to build a strong community and culture, achieve stellar execution of our business goals and social mandate, and ensure Benevity-ites thrive. For those who live within a reasonable commuting distance to an office, we can split our time working in the office and from home to optimize the opportunities of both, with the requirement that we spend at least 50% of the time in the office.
