International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) and Information Services Group (ISG) have announced that ISS will be honoured as the winner of its third annual IAOP/ISG Global Outsourcing Social Responsibility Impact Award.
Upon receiving the news of winning the Global Outsourcing Social Responsibility Impact Award, Joseph Nazareth, Group Head of Health, Safety & Environment and Corporate Responsibility, said:
– We are extremely honoured and humbled that IAOP and ISG have chosen ISS for this prestigious Award. We owe this to our 515,000 employees and all our loyal customers around the world. We truly believe that Social Responsibility has to be an integrated part of how we do business. We do not see Social responsibility as a cost to the business, but as a way to create value for our society.
The award will be presented to ISS and accepted by Joseph Nazareth, at a luncheon during The 2015 Outsourcing World Summit, February 16-18, 2015, in Phoenix, Arizona. In addition, ISG will make a cash donation in the name of ISS to its chosen charity, FedCap.
Jennifer Bonilla, Country Manager of ISS North America, said:
– We have chosen Fedcap in New York as the charity to receive the USD 5,000 donation from ISG. Fedcap is a long term partner of ISS. The organization provides an amazing service for vocational rehabilitation for those who face barriers to employment. We have huge empathy for the important work they do. The donation from ISG is recognition of this and in addition, ISS will match the donation to help support Fedcap in their purpose.
IAOP and ISG established the award in 2012 to recognize service provider excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility. The winner demonstrates exemplary leadership in, and ongoing commitment to, activities that foster community involvement, fair operating and labor practices, respect for human rights, attention to environmental impacts, consumer issues and good governance.
