MATAWAN, N.J., Aug. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- iCIMS, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, announced today that the company recently teamed up with Clean Ocean Action to participate in a beach clean-up at the nearby Sandy Hook beach on August 22nd. This company-wide event was one of several green initiatives iCIMS has participated in so far this year as part of the company's iGIVE Back program.
Since 2006, iCIMS has made a commitment to preserve and restore the local environment through the iGIVE Back program. The corporate responsibility program enables iCIMS and its employees to partake in charitable opportunities through partnerships with eco-friendly organizations such as Earth Share New Jersey and Clean Ocean Action. Within the program, employees can make financial donations which will be matched by the company, as well as volunteer their time during office hours to park and beach clean-ups throughout the year.
The company-wide beach clean-up in Sandy Hook Township had volunteers assisting in the removal of pollution within the seven-mile stretch of beach. The yearly cleaning of the beach is an effort to protect the 300+ species of migratory birds and forestry indigenous to the area. Earlier this year, employees participated in a park clean-up at Cheesequake State Park, cleaning trash left behind by park visitors, rebuilding decrepit fences, and assisting state park rangers in the protection of the endangered Pink Lady's Slipper.
"Having annual company-wide clean-ups is important and meaningful to the iCIMS family," said Ron Kasner, Chief Corporate Development Officer, iCIMS. "Most of our employees live in the region they are helping to preserve and our organized volunteer events have set the tone for giving back by re-enforcing the fact that our actions at work can impact our personal lives. Employees have seen the difference they have made with the iGIVE Back program and have become environmentally conscious in their daily lives. They turn off unneeded lights and unused electronics -- some even carpool to work," concluded Kasner.
"iCIMS recognizes that our organization is part of a much larger community through both our community service efforts and business conduct," said Colin Day, Chief Executive Officer, iCIMS. "With that in mind, we try to go beyond Matawan, NJ and empower our customers to make a difference in their local environment and 'go green' through the use of iCIMS Talent Platform. The platform gives users the ability to digitize cover letters, resumes, and necessary paperwork; eliminating the need for hard copies. In future software releases, we hope to incorporate more features that will help further our company's green initiatives and the iGIVE Back program," concluded Day.
Over the years, iCIMS has been recognized for the company's green efforts by local and national award programs. In 2009, Colin Day was a finalist in the Green Executive of the Year category in NJBIZ's Green Leadership Awards. Additionally, the company was awarded New Jersey's Environmental Leadership Award from Earth Share and was named a finalist in the Best Corporate Environmental Responsibility category in the American Business Awards.
