The company is recognized for its corporate social responsibility program and contributions to society
AUSTIN, Texas (April 29, 2022) — Khoros, an award-winning leader in digital-first customer engagement software and services, today announced it won a Silver Stevie® Award in the Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year category in The 20th Annual American Business Awards®.
The recognition highlights Khoros’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) structure, which provides strategic direction for the company’s efforts in investing in its people, supporting its communities, and protecting our planet. Initiatives include its product donation program (Khoros Social Responsibility program), paid volunteer time off (VTO) for its employees, participating in the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative, among others.
“We are honored to be recognized with this Stevie Award as a testament to the work we’ve done in establishing a strong CSR program. At Khoros, we view social and environmental responsibility as key drivers of organizational growth and long-term success. We look forward to advancing our efforts to drive positive change for our employees, customers, and communities,” said Michael O’Donnell, chief talent officer at Khoros.
More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. Judges’ comments on Khoros’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) program include:
Khoros’s CSR pillars (product, time, resources, planet): "I rank corporate social responsibility programs highly when they have an authenticity that grows naturally from the products/services/mission of the organization. The four key pillars of Khoros are a great example of service that reflects core competencies and expertise."
Khoros Social Responsibility program: "What an amazing and well planned initiative. The strategic focus is clear and the success metrics demonstrate the traction you are gaining in this space. This is a great way to give back to non-profits that typically could not obtain these resources."
