Keeping It Local

London Strong
At Spud Software, we often refer to ourselves as “your local software company,” which is a phrase we do not say lightly. Time and again we encourage our employees to attend events outside of work because it’s important to all of us that we become active members of our community. Attending community events is especially encouraged to our employees if the event will help to promote healthy living and, better yet, if the event’s proceeds go toward a good cause. Just this past week, in fact, our team had both sponsored and participated in the 2nd Annual London Strong “Set Your Dreams” 5K, which dedicates itself to raising funds and creating awareness for various heart conditions, along with emphasizing the importance of CPR and AED.

Bringing the Spud Software employees together for this occasion was a great way to build up our team’s comradery as goals were set and challenges were made! Spud employees brought their families (fur babies included) to join in on the fun as well and there were plenty of activities to have fun with before and after the race.
We also got to meet up with our friends from Lucky Day Animal Rescue to help them set up their venue. Lucky Day Animal Rescue is an organization of passionate individuals who are dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of unwanted, abandoned, and suffering animals. While at the event, LDAR had a few of their fur friends in attendance that visitors were encouraged to meet!
With an emphasis on work/life balance, our hardworking team is still able to maintain lives outside of the office. It’s important to us that they can spend time with their families or fur babies, explore new hobbies and volunteer as they please. Our team loves keeping it local and staying involved with the community. Spud Software will also be sponsoring the upcoming 4th Annual HSGC Golf Outing this weekend, which will help benefit the Humane Society of Genesee County.

We’re looking forward to more events to enjoy as a team and hope to see you too! How do you stay involved in your community? Let us know, as we’re always looking for new ideas to get involved. Learn more about our team and our values at
