Avionté shows leadership in CSR through the company’s Hope Foundation program.
EAGAN, Minn. — Avionté, a recruiting and staffing software provider out of Eagan, Minn., has placed on the annual American Staffing Association (ASA) Care Award list, receiving an Honorable Mention for the work done through their nonprofit arm, the Avionté Hope Foundation (AHF).
According to ASA, the national awards program recognizes outstanding corporate social responsibility initiatives among ASA member staffing firms, associate members (staffing industry suppliers), regional councils and affiliated chapters. The award celebrates companies that are embracing CSR as part of their company mission and strategies.
“More and more staffing, recruiting and workforce solutions companies are embracing CSR because of the many benefits of these programs to serving their communities and advancing their business objectives,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “ASA congratulates the 2016 ASA Care Award honorees and all staffing firms that have launched CSR programs in their organizations.”
Avionté’s Hope Foundation, which was launched in early 2012, operates with the mission of helping people help themselves by touching lives and driving change in the community. Avionté does this through financial contributions to organizations and by encouraging all employees to use three paid “Hope Days” to do good in their community. Avionté’s CEO and an initiator of the AHF program, John Long, relays a passion for giving and said he thinks the company could have an even greater impact in years to come as Avionté continues to grow.
“As a growing company, I believe it’s important to use our success to help fuel the needs of the community,” said Long. “The Avionté Hope Foundation is something I am extremely proud of and has become a significant part of Avionté’s corporate culture.”
Since its beginning, the Foundation has given nearly $200,000 to local organizations and to nonprofits chosen by Avionté’s Nepal-based employees. To date, Avionté’s employees have served nearly 3,000 hours volunteering locally. The company has worked with many local organizations including The Link, Options for Women East, DARTS and Habitat for Humanity.
The recruiting and staffing software company was listed alongside Randstad US, Integrity Staffing Solutions, Roth Staffing Cos., LaSalle Network, SEEK Careers/Staffing, Associated Staffing Inc., Employment Edge Staffing, Milliner & Associates, Tricom and the Georgia Staffing Association. Avionté will be exhibiting at ASA’s annual Staffing World conference and all ASA Care Award honorees will be celebrated during the last Staffing World 2016 General Session, taking place on Thursday, October 27.
