Ivory Homes Honored as Salt Lake Chambers Corporate Partner of the Year
This past week, the Salt Lake Chamber honored Ivory Homes as their Corporate Partner of the Year. The Chamber has been a critical partner in helping us meet our mission to contribute to and uplift our broader community this past year.
Specifically, the Chamber worked with Ivory Homes to:
- Utah Leads Together and Governor’s Economic Response Task Force: Ivory Homes CEO, Clark Ivory, joined with other key community members to inform and direct the state’s economic response during the pandemic. This led to Utah being the number one state for small business assistance loans (PPP), assisting many of Ivory Homes’ subs, suppliers, and trade partners.
- Hope Corps: The Chamber helped lead an effort called the Hope Corps, a program initiated by Ivory Homes CEO, Clark Ivory, to support Utah throughout the pandemic. The Hope Corps engaged students from every University in the state and connected them with small businesses, nonprofits, and other key community partners with paid internships to help our community navigate the pandemic.
- Stay Safe to Stay Open + Vaccine Clinics: To help make our customers, employees, and partners all feel safe and welcome, the Chamber’s Stay Safe to Stay Open initiative verified and supported Ivory Homes’ collective COVID-19 protocols and strategies. Ivory Homes further worked to create safe and healthy work environments by partnering with Nomi Health to provide three vaccine clinics for our trade partners and residents in CW Farms, Cranefield, and Holbrook Farms.
- Housing GAP Coalition: Recognizing the negative effects the housing shortage has created in Utah, Salt Lake Chamber’s Housing Gap Coalition has been a key ally in helping elected officials and business leaders understand the gravity of Utah’s current housing shortage and affordability pressures.
- Focus on Mental Health: Ivory Homes has been a leader in the business community in implementing the Workforce Resilience Through Mental Fitness strategies identified by the Chamber’s Utah Community Builders. One strategy Ivory Homes has implemented in our organization includes BluNovis, a program focused on offering preventative mental health training, support, and coaching to employees.
- Slow the Flow: During a year of historic drought, Ivory Homes has taken many steps to Slow the Flow. Governor Cox and the Salt Lake Chamber recognized Ivory Homes earlier this year for our efforts on water conservation through partnerships with local water districts in offering Localscaping to our customers.
These are just a few of the many initiatives and partnerships that are helping our community and company improve.
