At WEI, we’re not just an award-winning technology services provider focusing on helping our customers drive business value; we’re also a company that cares for the health, happiness, and wellbeing of our employees, our environment, and the community around us. We do this through our community outreach and corporate responsibility initiative: WEI Steps UP. Earlier this year we worked with Habitat for Humanity and we are excited to announce that this past June 15th we held our second annual Care Pack Family BBQ, which aimed to benefit our military men and women serving overseas with the help of the Pease Greeters organization.
We are proud to share that on Thursday, May 11, the WEI team spent the day in Lawrence, MA, volunteering our time, strength and grit with the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity organization. This is the second year that WEI has worked together with Habitat for Humanity through WEI’s corporate responsibility and sustainability program, WEI StepsUp. The program gives all WEI employees four paid hours each month to volunteer with organizations that support the surrounding community. Each employee is offered the chance to donate up to 48 hours per year doing charity work and approximately 30 WEI employees were on site for the day, including WEI’s co-founder and VP, Leslie Rosas.
We’re proud to announce that our February clothing drive was a huge success! The WEI team collected 40 total boxes of new and gently used clothing items benefitting local organizations such as Lazarus House Ministries, Inc. and Progress Clothing, both based in Lawrence, MA. The clothing drive was part of WEI’s robust community outreach program and sustainability initiative, WEI StepsUP. Through WEI StepsUP, all WEI employees are able to donate 4 hours each month to volunteer at local non-profit organizations—all of which support the health and growth of our community. Each employee is offered the chance to donate up to 48 hours per year doing charity work.
We’re pleased to announce we have been awarded the 2016 HPE US Partner of the Year award for VAR percentage growth by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). This is the second time we’ve been honored with this distinction, and both times the honor has been based on percentage growth. HPE shared a blog post announcing the winners; view it here.
We are proud to announce; for the third year in a row, we’ve been named to Business NH Magazine’s prestigious list of Top Family Owned Businesses by revenue. This year WEI ranked #2 on the list of Top Family Owned Businesses, up from #7 in both 2014 and 2015.
We enjoy sharing about our recent media coverage with our clients and customers in addition to stories of our company’s history and business growth. Sramana Mitra from the One Million by One Million blog recently profiled our President and CEO Belisario Rosas about his journey to transform WEI into the company it is today. Many of the most talked-about sagas of technology entrepreneurs detail Asian or European innovators; Belisario is Latin American (from Lima, Peru), and Sramana Mitra recently shared his unique story in a 5-part interview series on the blog.
