August 5, 2014, Toronto, ON – Crawford Technologies today announced it will be offering employees full pay for doing one full day of volunteer work annually at a charity of their choice.

An extremely generous annual profit-sharing program that encompasses all employees in all sectors A wellness program that covers the cost of a monthly fitness membership of the employee's choice A charity-matching program where CrawfordTech matches employees' personal donations to accredited charities during the holiday season
