Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Waldron, a leading talent management firm and the Seattle office of Career Partners International, is delighted to announce that for the third year in a row, it has been honored as one of the Top Pacific Northwest Corporate Philanthropists by the Seattle Foundation and Puget Sound Business Journal (PSBJ). The 2013 Honorees were announced at a luncheon held at Seattle’s Sheraton Hotel on May 17th.
The annual PSBJ Corporate Philanthropist Award recognizes 75 companies that “demonstrate above-and-beyond overall giving” and embrace corporate philanthropy as part of the company’s culture. The full list of companies is published in the Corporate Citizenship: Business of Giving special report.
Waldron’s dedication to social responsibility was also recognized last November, when the organization became the first executive search and talent management consulting firm headquartered in Washington State to achieve B Corporation status. B Corporations must “meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.” The 759 B Corps from 27 countries and 60 industries all share the goal of redefining success in business.
Mike Humphries, Waldron's President, shared, “At Waldron, we have a 30 year legacy of community involvement, volunteerism, and social service. Service and involvement are important core values at the company and permeate all that we do in philanthropy and in our business services. We are flattered to be among this group of co-honorees, people, and organizations who help to make this such a wonderful place to live and work.”
