Arrow Electronics received a 2019 Corporate Social Responsibility Award from Ragan’s PR Daily for its employee engagement platform, Arrow Charitable. The awards, the fifth for Arrow from PR Daily, honor campaigns, programs and initiatives that are changing the world for the better.
PR Daily recognized Arrow for expanding access to Arrow Charitable to employees across the Americas and for making it easy for Arrow staff to contribute to their communities. In 2018, Arrow employees used the platform to support 165 charities, logging nearly 6,000 volunteer hours.
“The importance of an organization’s purpose has been on the rise for several years. Millennial employees (and prospects) in particular want to work for organizations that have a higher calling,” said PR Daily in announcing Arrow’s award. “Arrow Electronics recognizes this trend and believes that purposeful community engagement makes employees more engaged and the company stronger.”
Arrow’s expansion of Arrow Charitable demonstrates a commitment to taking corporate social responsibility companywide. The company’s goal is to increase employee giving and volunteering by 10 percent in 2019.
Arrow has earned five awards from PR Daily over the last three years, including two for employee engagement, two for CSR reporting and one for education programs. To view the full list of this year’s winners, visit: https://www.prdaily.com/awards/corporate-social-responsibility-awards/2019/winners/
