eMoney Advisor, a wealth management solutions provider, recently opened their third location in Providence, RI in 2017. In order to connect with the new employees and the new community, the firm has turned to art.
“Since eMoney is fairly new to Providence, it’s been really important for us to connect with the community,” said Tessa Raum, Head of People Experience, at eMoney. “Most of our office is comprised of talented Rhode Islanders who are proud to live, work and give back to their communities. Displaying the incredible work of local artists in our office was an easy way for us to further integrate Providence’s culture within the eMoney environment.”
Two weeks ago, the company announced its partnership with the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA). RISCA presented works by local artists who were named fellows by their annual grant program. Employeees from eMoney were then given the opportunity to review and vote for their favorite pieces. The top choices now reside in the eMoney office at 100 Westminster Street.
If you happen to walk through the office, you may see works by Jodie Goodnough, or Johnny Adimando, Kathy Jodge. “It was great to be included in the process of choosing the art and then see it hung in our office,” said Gary Jutras, a senior software engineer at eMoney. “We all have our favorites, and the variety makes the office really feel like our own space.”
RISCA plans to continue involving the employees with the arts with lunch-and-learns with the artists.
