Schaumburg, IL (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
Convergint Technologies, LLC, a North American systems integrator based in Schaumburg, Illinois, has made the 2011 Honor Roll for the Center for Companies That Care.
The Honor Roll, a national list recognizing employers for outstanding workplace practices and active community involvement, includes privately-held and publicly-traded organizations, as well as not-for-profit employers.
“Convergint Technologies are guided by a 'Pay It Forward' ideology and have been serving our community even before we turned a profit,” says Greg Lernihan, president, Convergint Technologies, LLC. “It feels good to be recognized in the Honor Roll for practices we embark on to helping our community thrive.”
Companies that care respect employees and are committed to community service. They demonstrate 10 Characteristics that go to appreciating people, work/life balance, and giving back. This uniqueness defines the standard for all organizations that strive to be recognized as best places to work and being socially responsible.
“From its inception, Convergint Technologies has had laughter and customer service to others as part of its corporate values. Employees work hard, but they are expected (not just encouraged) to have fun and to volunteer to make a difference for others,” says Marci Koblenz, founder and president, Center for Companies That Care. “The result has been tremendous growth for the company.”
Convergint Technologies recently implemented a Taking Care of Business award that recognizes colleagues who exceed expectation, clearly demonstrate Convergint values and beliefs, and/or achieve top-notch customer satisfaction.
Honor Roll recipients will be officially honored at a 360° engagement conference in Portland in May, where Joseph Grenny, the author of “Crucial Conversations,” is keynoting. Many Honor Roll organizations will be sharing their best practices during the conference. It is open to the public.
Center for Companies That Care is a national, 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to engaging employers in improving the lives of employees, families and communities.
