A core GMB value is providing opportunities for our employees to grow in their knowledge of the profession. As we have experienced a move to a multi-generational demographic of our workforce, we have focused extensively on the transferring of knowledge between the generations, investing in the education and development of our staff, and building our pipeline of future professionals.
GMB has been able to build on the success of our knowledge and robust history, further growing our design capabilities and our impact. We have expanded our disciplines in order to more holistically serve our clients through an integrated approach to design concept development. And we have also grown the reach of our influence through a growing number of clients and our expanded regional office presence.

The purpose of good architecture is to create community. From within the walls of our offices to across the globe, we seek to use our knowledge and influence to make better communities. Corporately and individually, GMB and our employees have leveraged financial and design resources to come alongside local and global organizations who are working for positive community change.
Annual Community Day - As part of our commitment to giving, we dedicate an afternoon of service to local organizations each year. Our annual Community Day is designed to give all of our employees the opportunity to give back in the communities where we work.
Employees choose from 12 volunteer opportunities across our four office locations. The organizations involved include shelters, senior living facilities, and a variety of other community centers that serve many local populations. We are proud to serve the great causes of multiple organizations who provide so much support and inspiration in their respective communities. Over 400 volunteer hours were accrued during our 2018 Community Day.
VOX - Since 2012, GMB has had the privilege of collaborating with VOX, an inspiring organization dedicated to providing sustainable clean drinking water to people in poverty-stricken communities. GMB's involvement has been focused on both the development of new wells and the rehabilitation of existing wells. Together, VOX and GMB have impacted the lives of 165,962 people to date.
Jean Fund Charities - Every Friday, GMB’ers are encouraged to leave the work clothes in the closet and wear jeans, donating $1 each week to our Jean Fund. Throughout the years, our employees have contributed to over twenty local charities. Our Jean Fund allows our employees to learn more about the charities serving within the communities that we work and live in, and develop relationships with those who serve and are served.
Our 2018 Jean Fund charities are the Community Action House and Guiding Light Works.
