Stream Energy has created an excellent reputation for themselves from their company model to the way that they help others outside of work. Stream is known for having the DNA of generosity. They have helped their community rebuild multiple times as a result of natural disasters. They also employ people who have a passion for giving to back to the community as well. Stream Energy hires their workers as independent contractors who are in charge of their own business. Their responsibility is to build lasting relationships with people in the community by understanding their needs. Contractors match clients with products and services that meet their needs at a discounted price. They earn a commission for each sale. The work of the associates doesn’t stop there as they also volunteer in philanthropic events sponsored by Stream Cares. Stream Cares is the company’s nonprofit organization that partners with other organizations that share the same goal to make the world a better place through generosity. One example of how Stream Energy has made a definite difference in the quality of lives of the less fortunate is its partnership with the Salvation Army. North Texas was hit with a number of tornadoes on the day after Christmas that caused chaos for many families. Stream immediately utilized their partnership with the Salvation Army by raising money to fund the recovery of lost and damaged businesses, and homes. They then matched the amount of money raised to double the funding. Another example is the annual Splash for Hope event. Stream partners with the Hope Supply Co. to give homeless children the experience of a lifetime. The Hope Supply Co. is an organization that gives homeless families supplies they need such as school items, clothing, and even diapers. Stream Energy covers the entrance and meal costs for more than 1,000 children to the local water park. For many children, it is their first time visiting a waterpark. Associates at Stream volunteer to help facilitate the event and monitor the children. Overall, Stream is making a positive difference in the quality of life for many people in need. Increased awareness about their efforts will motivate people to support them to expand their reach even more.
