VinSolutions Launches New Employee-Driven Charity Program

 

PRLog (Press Release) - Apr 30, 2012 - 
VinSolutions, an industry-leading developer of automotive Internet-based Customer Relations Management (CRM) and Internet Lead Management (ILM) software, is excited to announce its company-wide charity initiative, “VinGives”, allowing employees the opportunity to contribute to their favorite non-profit organization. 

Through VinGives, employees at VinSolutions may apply to receive monetary support and recognition for their participation in community service.  Each month, an executive committee will review applications received through their website and make unanimous decisions, track progress and trends, make notifications and evolve the program accordingly.     

"Philanthropy has not only become our corporate responsibility, as one of the fastest growing and successful companies in the nation, but an important part of making a positive impact in the lives of our most valued asset – our people,” said Keith Polsinelli, Chief Operating Officer of VinSolutions.  “VinGives is an extension of our “Be One with VIN” motto and continues to foster the kind of culture that encourages job and personal innovation through teamwork and balance."  

Community Outreach is a core value that VinSolutions is eager to adopt in hopes that employees begin to get involved and volunteer throughout the year.  Find out more about VinGives here:http://www.vingives.com

This is great to see and is a great example of how any business can create opportunities for employees to become change agents in their own communities. This type of program certainly empowers employees to get involved and nourishes their creativity and collaboration within the community and within the workplace. I am curious to know if any examples are available yet or any ideas that are being tossed around on what some are looking to do? Keep us updated. Well done VinSolutions.
