Supporting our SIG Cyclists

We know many of our employees enjoy biking around the Philadelphia area, so we recently partnered with The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia. The Coalition advocates for safe and fun bicycling and has contributed to the addition of 200+ miles of bike lanes in the area. With our partnership, SIG employees receive a discounted individual membership with perks like free group rides and discounts at local bike shops.

We announced our partnership today during Bike To Work Day. To celebrate, we met at our covered bike rack and service center to pass out reflective leg bands and energy chews to each of our SIG cyclists.

Giving Back the SIG Way

The holidays are a great time around the SIG offices as we support our employees in contributing to their favorite charitable drives. This year, our employees donated hundreds of toys to Toys for Tots, the Saint Vincent de Paul Christmas Toy Appeal, The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, and The Smith Family Toy and Book Appeal. In Bala, we also sponsored 20 local families in need as part of Bryn Mawr Hospital’s Adopt-A-Family program, fulfilling basic needs and holiday wishes. Supporting these worthwhile organizations definitely put us in the holiday spirit!
