EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MWW Group (www.mww.com), one of the top ten global independent public relations firms, has been named to PR News' annual Corporate Social Responsibility ("CSR") A-list, which recognizes excellence in developing and managing innovative and successful CSR programs.
PR News also honored Michael W. Kempner, president and CEO of MWW Group, among its "CSR Professionals of the Year," for his many philanthropic endeavors, including his work with the White House Council for Community Solutions, Usher's New Look Foundation, and the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), among others.
"To matter more to consumers and communities alike, companies must be more than responsible, they must be sustainable. That's why we launched a Sustainable Solutions practice area last year, and why we've integrated CSR throughout every aspect of our business operations. To us, doing our part to make the world a better place – that's what matters most," said Kempner.
MWW's corporate sustainability is manifested in three ways: through the agency's work with nonprofit organizations working to do social good, through programs and recommendations that help businesses integrate sustainability and social responsibility into their core business practices, and through MWW's own transparency and involvement with philanthropic organizations, including the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
In addition to its A-List honors, MWW Group was also nominated for "Best Employee Relations" for its work deepening employee engagement with client Jimmy Dean's partnership with Share Our Strength to end childhood hunger. MWW Group was also nominated for "Best Social Media Campaign" for the launch of the Jimmy Dean/Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign at BlogHer in August 2011.
Awards will be announced at the 2012 PR News' CSR Awards Luncheon on April 17, 2012, from 12-2 p.m. at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C.
