Celergo, the leading fully-managed international payroll solution, today announced they would be an American Dream Sponsor at the 2017 Passport to Possibilities Awards & Gala, October 12, in Chicago.
Upwardly Global helps highly educated, but underemployed new Americans rebuild their lives and careers in the United States, simultaneously filling critical talent needs in finance, engineering, IT, healthcare, and beyond. In addition, their programs engage the employees of Fortune 500 companies as mentors and volunteers through formal employer partnerships. Upwardly Global programs build the cross-cultural awareness and skills of our workforce, and engender a sense of pride in corporate investments that reflect the value of immigrant integration.
Since 2012, the Celergo/Upwardly Global Partnership has delivered exceptional value both to Celergo and to the highly educated, underemployed immigrants served through Upwardly Global’s program. “Our requirements are hard to find, and when we find them, it becomes a competitive advantage for us. I’m proud to say that Celergo has hired 13 UpGlo job seekers into key positions,” states Michele Honomichl, Founder, Executive Chairman & Chief Strategy Officer for Celergo.
“Celergo is proud to partner and support the Upwardly Global organization. The Gala each year is a celebration of the partnership between UpGlo and employers working to ensure that immigrants who come to this country have an opportunity to live out their dreams and reach their ultimate potential. Riham Abulelem, the most recent addition to the Celergo team, is a model UpGlo program participant and will be a featured speaker at this Gala. I am proud to represent Celergo, and I look forward to the continued success of Upwardly Global!” Terry Adams, Senior Director of Compliance and HR for Celergo.
