Alignstaffing, a placement firm exclusively focused on education, behavioral health and social services, was recognized nationally by the American Staffing Association (ASA) for its corporate social responsibility program, AlignHearts. ASA’s national Care Awards program recognizes outstanding social responsibility programs among ASA member staffing agencies and associate members. Alignstaffing’s AlignHearts program received the honorable mention distinction.
“It’s quite an honor to be recognized by our industry peers for our dedication to the community. It is our belief that Alignstaffing’s success relies directly on the success of our community. That’s why our commitment to social responsibility is the core of everything we do,” says Aaron Copeland, Alignstaffing’s founder and CEO.
Over the course of two decades, Alignstaffing has helped more than 30,000 educators, social workers, and assistants in the Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD areas. Alignstaffing was founded with the vision to connect children with the level of qualified educators and behavioral health professionals that were not available to Copeland as he struggled through grade school.
“Corporate social responsibility means using your expertise to your community’s advantage,” added Copeland. “We do this every day by building a strong network of dedicated providers to support our current and future generations.”
AlignHearts is a series of philanthropic initiatives, including volunteer and nonprofit board work. Each year, the team donates $20,000 to organizations consistent with their mission, such as charter schools, community centers and early childhood centers. Employees also participate in annual backpack supply drives, resume workshops and job fairs, healthy food markets, and serve on various boards, including?Thread and the State Advisory Panel for Special Education.
“All of our projects through AlignHearts have kept our minds and work focused on building stronger connections within our communities, making them better places to live, learn and grow,” said Copeland.
The ASA Care Award winners are selected each year by a panel of independent social responsibility specialists, and will be celebrated at Staffing World® 2019 on October 15?17 in Las Vegas.
