Stream Energy is no doubt a company that’s after the heart of the community. It is evident that they have no ulterior motive. They sincerely care about the well-being of the people in the community. No company would make the sacrifices that Stream Energy has made unless they genuinely cared. For example, Hurricane Harvey was a storm that will never be forgotten. Houston Texas went from being normal to being underwater. The storm dumped close to 60 inches of rain, leaving many of the residents displaced from their homes. Many were killed, lost loved ones, and even their pets. Stream Energy used Stream Cares, which their philanthropy organization created for community is giving. They were one of the first responders to the aftermath of the hurricane. What was most fascinating about their giving is that they used money that they earned from energy sales to fund the recovery. Whether anticipated or not, giving of this magnitude is enhancing the reputation of Stream Energy. The company is becoming more attractive to prospective associates as well as to customers. Associates at Stream play a major role in the success of the company as well. They manage the customer’s client base by ensuring that they always have what they need. They also meet with new prospective customers to explain to them the services that Stream Energy offers at a discounted rate. The business model is set up so that everyone wins. Associates don’t have to come into an office and work a particular shift for a certain amount of hours. They are essentially independent contractors that own their own business. They earn commissions on every sale that they close. Associates also get to participate in sponsored events by helping serve the people in the community. Clients get to enjoy great services at a discounted rate. Adverse circumstances can happen at a moment’s notice. There is nothing that prepares one for the sudden loss of a loved one and their home. It is reassuring that Stream Energy is there to help pick up the pieces. They are indeed the very definition of philanthropy in the rarest form.
