KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Earlier this year, Pioneer Services was selected as having the best Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program for companies with less than 5,000 employees in PR Daily's CSR Awards. The company has been recognized by PR Daily once again, selected as having one of the best CSR programs in the nation regardless of company size in the 2013 PR Daily Awards. Other recipients included the Men's Warehouse and Walmart Mexico and Central America.


Pioneer Services does a number of things to give back to the military communities it serves. This includes in-kind support in its local offices, cash donations throughout the year, and the company's award-winning paid volunteer time off (VTO) program that provides more than 4,500 hours of VTO annually.

"We have made giving back a lot easier by making it part of our corporate culture," said Pioneer Services President Joe Freeman. "Part of that includes having team members take ownership of the program so they have a vested stake in its success. They have done a tremendous job, as awards like this show, and have come up with unique ways to give back to military families."

This is the third award the company has received for its CSR program in the past 14 months. The company also received a 2012 PR Daily CSR Award and 2012 American Business Award (called a "Stevie").
