Newton, MA (PRWEB) December 22, 2005
Employees of Deploy Solutions, the premier provider of talent management solutions for market-leading corporations, completed a year of giving back to the community with its fourth annual “Giving Wishes” holiday gift drive. Held in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Social Services this month, the campaign illustrated how Deploy’s own employees contribute their time and talents to the community and how the company internally practices its mantra of being a good corporate citizen.
To facilitate their employees’ willingness to help the community, Deploy has also created an Outreach Committee comprised of approximately 20 employees who represent various departments within the organization. Currently the Outreach Committee meets 1-2 times per month to discuss upcoming philanthropic events/projects and coordinate details.
“This year, we decided to do something a little different for our holiday gift drive,” said Jenny Wendel, Marketing Manager for Deploy. “We contacted the Massachusetts Department of Social Services and were allowed to give three families in the Hyde Park area exactly what they wanted for the holidays – including toys for children and gift card wishes for teenagers, who are often forgotten during gift-giving campaigns.”
In addition to the holiday drive, Deploy’s outreach initiatives from 2005 included an employee-led Tsunami relief campaign, baking and delivery of hot lasagna dinners to hundreds of Boston-area veterans, and a Hurricane Katrina relief effort.
“The benefits of these programs are two-fold,” said Rosanna Young, Human Resources Manager for Deploy. “They help enhance the work-life balance for employees by providing an outlet for them to give back to their community and, of course, they help people who are less fortunate.”
Young and the Outreach Committee are already looking well into 2006 to determine which activities the company will be able to participate in. “For 2006, in addition to the company’s outreach activities, HR plans to formalize a policy that would allow employees to take paid time off to volunteer,” said Young.
Recently recognized as one of the best places to work in Massachusetts as well as one of the best places to work in America, Deploy’s commitment to best practices is evident in the way it leverages the company’s own solutions to recruit, hire and retain top-notch talent.
