WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – CSAA Insurance Group, a AAA insurer, has been named one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. The Civic 50 provides a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for our continued commitment to serving our customers and our communities,” said Vanessa Chan, senior manager of community relations at CSAA Insurance Group. “This award is a reflection of our company values and the people who work here, and demonstrates the dedication of our employees in making a positive difference and the importance of giving back.”
Last year, 100% of CSAA Insurance Group employees volunteered in their communities, which is the highest volunteer rate in the country for companies with more than 3,000 employees. Employees receive 24 hours of paid company time off to volunteer each year at national parks, local food banks, and more. Employees are also eligible for a matching gift program, a “dollars for doers” program and donations to nonprofit organizations in recognition of employee board service.
“The Civic 50 truly highlights the commitment of community and civic engagement of America’s leading brands,” said Natalye Paquin, president and CEO, Points of Light. “Points of Light believes that people drive change in addressing society’s growing and most profound challenges. The business community plays an important role in creating and delivering innovative solutions that drive social good in the communities where they live and work.”
The Civic 50 survey was administered by True Impact, a company specializing in helping organizations maximize and measure their social and business value. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform The Civic 50 scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
