NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Havas PR North America (@havaspr) - already the most awarded agency of its size in the U.S. - just picked up three new honors from the PR News CSR Awards, including being named to the CSR A-List for the two years that the list has existed. Contributing to that achievement no doubt is the agency's exceptional work with Ford Motor Co.'s Warriors in Pink breast-cancer awareness program, for which the agency won two additional PR News CSR Awards - Best Media Relations (for Ford WIP) and Best Video Initiative (for the Ford WIP documentary "Bang the Drum").
The agency has also been recently recognized with Bulldog Digital/Social PR awards for its agency website initiative (the Voice of Innovation Nation) and for a noteworthy social recruitment tactic. (In summer 2012, Havas PR's recruiter made a virtual cold call to an "Ellen Show" producer via LinkedIn to offer an internship to a young man who was helping finance his education by tap-dancing in the New York City subways.)
"We are deeply committed to CSR throughout the entire Havas network," said Marian Salzman, CEO, Havas PR North America. "It is exciting to be named to the CSR A-List again and really gratifying to be recognized for the work we do for worthy causes - which ranges from pro bono services for nonprofit organizations to connecting our corporate and consumer clients with causes that make sense to their business."
Putting its beliefs into action, Havas PR celebrated the 2012 holiday season with its CSR initiative 12 Days of Havas (#12DaysofHavas), for which the agency donated communications services and on-site volunteering to a dozen worthy organizations, e.g., the Bob Woodruff Foundation, #GivingTuesday, DKMS and GMHC. The agency already strives to donate year round with its Baker's Dozen initiative - approximately $1.3 million in pro bono marketing support and services for each $12 million in agency revenue.
