Corporate Social Responsibility It’s the HMI Way.
It’s in everything we do.
At HMI Performance Incentives, community is our passion. We strive to give our full potential back to the communities around us, be them local, national, or international. We empower our employees to make an impact beyond just themselves and help our clients to do the same. Our mission is to support the causes and communities that we and our clients are passionate about. That means finding a way to bring good into every program and helping our clients execute on their values.
It’s our responsibility to expand the reach to not just ourselves, but to our clients, our clients’ participants, and finally to the people we can help. Together, we’re excited to broaden the positive impact we can all have.
It’s not just about what we can do to make the world a better place, it’s how we can inspire others to do the same.
Below are just a few examples of the CSR events that we’ve run with our clients and internally. Take a look!
Food Insecurity In Aruba
During a travel trip to Aruba with client, Manning Building Supplies, HMI and the Manning put together a volunteer event where participants of the trip would package up non-perishable food and hygiene supplies for families in need in the area with help from the Fundacion Pa Nos Comunidad.
Together we were able to supply 40 families with a month’s worth of supplies! So many of the trip-goers shows up for the event and expressed a deep connection with the event. HMI was awarded the Most Impactful Effort Toward CSR as Part of an Incentive Program award from the SITE Crystal Awards for the program.

America’s Second Harvest of Georgia
Established in 1981 in Savannah Georgia, America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia is a locally inspired, volunteer-driven nonprofit food bank and community partnering organization. Second Harvest serves as the food safety net for tens of thousands of children, senior citizens, low-income families, and people with disabilities who are at risk for hunger throughout Coastal Georgia. *$100 provides 500 meals*
HMI recently made a donation as part of the UniCarriers Forklift Premier Club trip in Sea Island, Georgia (The Lodge Sea Island) – UniCarriers Forklift contributed and so did HMI. We donated $100 per attendee for a total of $2,700. Two of the customers/qualifiers pledged to donate $3000 each as well, which brings the impact of this initiative up to $8,700 (for a group of 27 people, one of our smallest programs!). Total donations came to $11,700 which will provide 58,500 meals for those who are at a risk of hunger. Thank you to everyone who donated and for being here with us for such a wonderful organization!

Building Bikes in Mexico
While traveling to Mexico, Tradesman International and HMI Performance Incentives stood up an event in partnership with Fundación de Corazón de Niña where participants on Tradesman International’s trip could get together and build bikes for children in Mexico.
Together, we were able to build 26 bikes for boys and girls, with over 100 Tradesmen Employees coming out to help build! The event was so well received and helped the non-profit in its mission to empower and educate orphans and disadvantaged children.

Food Insecurity In Mexico
Recently, HMI and UniCarriers worked to stand up an event that over half of the participants on their travel program attended! We worked together to integrate this food and hygiene packing event into their annual trip, and it was a huge success.
By working with an organization called Alltournative, we were able to deliver hundreds of pounds of food and hygiene supplies to 60 Mayan families in just 45 minutes.

Cradles to Crayons Boston
Recently, HMI’s team volunteered at Cradles to Crayons in Boston, Massachusetts, an organization that works to fight Children’s Clothing Insecurity focused on raising awareness about this urgent crisis nationally. In 20 years, the organization has supplied more than three million packages of basic essentials like clothing, shoes, diapers, and school supplies to children who don’t have access to these critical resources.
The team spent their time in the Big Sort Area, the first step in the process where all the donated clothing is inspected, before going to the next group where they created outfit packs by matching together items.

Preserving and Protecting Special Places
Recently, HMI’s team went to work with The Trustees, Massachusetts’ largest preservation and conservation nonprofit organization. We worked at the Powisset Farm not far from our corporate office to celebrate the end of the spring season and to stay true to our CSR values.
We weeded plant beds, planted sunflower seeds, trellised peas, and strung a wire fence around a new field to protect from grazing deer!

In the immediate wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, HMI asked its community questions like “Who or what is inspiring you right now?” These questions, crafted to spread positivity and kindness, generated heartfelt and meaningful responses.
“People spending time with their families and noticing things they usually take for granted.” – Campaign Participant.
As part of the campaign, we polled our audience to help us pick charitable organizations to donate to. Our audience chose St. Jude’s, St. Baldrick’s, Rocky Mountain Lab Shelter, and Central Texas Foodbank.
