Proud to be the First Company to Win ACSESS Award Three Times
Ottawa, ON, April 28, 2016 – Eagle Professionals Resources Inc. (Eagle), Canada’s premier professional staffing agency, is thrilled to announce that it is the first staffing company ever to receive the ACSESS Corporate Social Responsibility Award (formerly Community Service Award) for the 3rd time. The award, which is presented by the Association of Canadian Search, Employment and Staffing Services (ACSESS), was officially announced yesterday at the association’s annual conference in Niagara Falls.
According to the ACSESS website, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award is presented to a member company that has shown an extraordinary commitment to, and genuine concern for, the community at large. To be eligible for this award, a company and its employees must be involved in public service activities that return value to the community by supporting charities, education and other community groups.
Eagle’s reputation for giving back to the community is well known across Canada. The company makes regular financial contributions to national charities, including the United Way, as well as charities selected by clients and contractors as part of its unique holiday gift card. Year-round, Eagle supports charitable events for a variety of causes, with the most recent being the MASC Young Authors’ & Illustrators’ Conference which took place in Ottawa last week. Staff at Eagle are also encouraged to donate time and money to deserving charities, which Eagle assists through a payroll deduction campaign and by providing paid days off to volunteer.
“Eagle has always believed in giving back to the community and we are very honoured to be recognised by our industry association for a third time,” said Kevin Dee, Eagle’s CEO. “This kind of recognition can also convince other companies to get more involved and to help make our society just a little better, so kudos to ACSESS.”
