"We Are the Roots of UH" is typically a fun time when UH employees split up into four teams and compete in cool contests for a month, as a way to give back and support our residents and our company. Prizes are awarded all month, with final drawings and awards at the end!

At this time every year, more than ever—we think about why our work is critical, why UH's mission is critical. It's all about the people. We are "Always Caring."

--> For 2020, we are not asking employees to make gifts during "We Are the Roots of UH."
