Lead by FLG’s Business Resource Group (BRG), FLG will engage their virtual, global workforce to commit to acts of service in their communities
As a military family-founded company with a workforce of 64% Military Spouses and Veterans, we are driven by our passion for serving others. FLG will use the 60 days between 9/11 (Patriot Day) and 11/11 (Veteran’s Day) to commit to acts of service.
We will use this time to make an impact in our community in honor of those whose lives were lost or forever changed because of the terror attacks on our country.
How you make a difference in your community is only limited by your imagination. We all have time, talent, or treasure we can give and every dollar or moment given to someone in need makes an impact.
Join us in these next 60 days to honor and remember.
“Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.” – Barack Obama

The Business Resource Group (BRG) at FLG is a voluntary, employee-led body bringing all FLG Contributors together across the globe, fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace aligned with the organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives.
The BRG exists to provide a platform for discussion and information on issues impacting our global workforce while also creating opportunities for professional development and networking. BRGs are not politically motivated, exclusive, or divisive.
Being a part of an all-remote global workforce strays from the traditional way employees connect with one another and share insight into their work environment. With a lack of “water cooler talk,” it is vital for FLG to ensure we remain connected with one another in alternate ways. Rising to the challenges of 2021 will be best done together with the support of the BRG.
