Celebrating our third annual XM Day
XM Day is an annual event where Qualtrics shows the world the power of Experience Management in action. It’s a day where we practice what we preach by designing and improving the experiences in our communities. Our teams around the globe gather together and participate in meaningful service to give back.
This year, Qualtricians were able to participate in office-based activities or choose their own way to give back to their community. As a global company, we have the opportunity to impact our local communities and global communities in need of urgent support. We hosted over 50 events globally, some big and some small.
A look at what we did this year
Qualtrics is All In on fighting cancer through 5 For The Fight — our nonprofit organization that invites everyone to give $5 for the fight against cancer. This year we worked with cancer centers around the globe to pack Chemo Care Kits to provide comfort to those in hospitals and chemo centers. Our Seattle, Provo, and Dublin offices were able to pack over 500 Chemo Care Kits, including overnight kits for caregivers staying in hospitals. We also made “graduation blankets” for those celebrating the end of chemo, and collected $5,000 in gift cards and support items for families going through cancer treatment.
Some of our offices participated in making blankets to donate to Ukrainian refugees through Wrap Ukraine with Quilts. Over 22,000 blankets have been donated already and we were able to add 100 (and counting!) blankets to that number.
Our Employee Resource Group, Green Team, coordinated local clean ups to improve the environment and impact the communities who enjoy these spaces. Some of our offices chose local parks and beaches to clean up as a team. We were able to pick up 80+ (and counting) bags of trash.
