Bullhorn Wins American Staffing Association Care Award for Bullhorn Cares
BOSTON – OCT. 2, 2018 – Bullhorn®, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organizations transform their businesses, has won a 2018 American Staffing Association (ASA) Care Award for its employee-led philanthropic initiative, Bullhorn Cares. The ASA Care Awards nationally recognize social responsibility initiatives—business processes that produce an overall positive effect on society—at ASA member staffing agencies and industry suppliers.
Bullhorn Cares empowers Bullhorn’s more than 900 employees worldwide to volunteer their time and connect with their local communities. As a provider to the workforce solutions industry and as part of Bullhorn Cares, Bullhorn partners with organizations that are bridging the opportunity divide.
Two examples of those organizations include Career Collaborative and Year Up. Career Collaborative teaches unemployed and underemployed adults with low-income jobs how to build careers that change lives and strengthen families. Year Up provides talented and motivated young adults ages 18-24 with the skills, experience, and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education.
Since its inception in 2006, Bullhorn Cares has raised more than $500,000, with more than $100,000 given in charitable donations over the past year.
“It’s a tremendous honor for the American Staffing Association to recognize Bullhorn Cares as meaningful to our employees and impactful to our communities,” said Art Papas, Bullhorn’s founder and CEO. “At Bullhorn, we believe it’s incredibly important to give back to the community because while talent is distributed equally, opportunity, unfortunately, is not. We have made it Bullhorn’s corporate mission to help close the opportunity gap because everyone in society deserves to flourish through rewarding, exciting, and challenging careers.”
The ASA Care Awards honor social responsibility initiatives that involve employee training and professional development, community engagement, “green” business practices, philanthropy, and more. A panel of social responsibility experts selects the honorees.
The ASA Care Award honorees will be celebrated at ASA’s Staffing World® 2018 conference held Oct. 16‒18 in metro Washington, D.C.
