MATAWAN, N.J. (May 14, 2012) â€” iCIMS, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, announced today that the company will continue its commitment to supporting green initiatives by participating in a park clean-up at the nearby Cheesequake State Park. The clean-up will take place on May 18th, 2012 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EST).
iCIMS’ volunteers will help complete various projects throughout the park alongside state park rangers and other park employees. In previous years, iCIMS’ volunteers have assisted in projects such as building and painting houses for migratory birds, clearing trails, planting trees and other plant specimens, and creating a natural barrier to stop potential landslides caused by erosion.
The Cheesequake State Park clean-up is one of many environmental improvement actions iCIMS has participated in since the company launched its iGIVE Back program in 2006. Colin Day, iCIMS’ CEO, established the iGIVE Back program to promote the protection of local green spaces and support select environmental causes through a corporate charitable giving plan. Within the program, employees can volunteer up to two paid days annually to participate in company-wide beach and park sweeps. In addition, they can elect to give direct deposit donations, which the company matches, to several environmental action groups such as Earth Share of New Jersey.
“As the company grows, so does the number of volunteers and participants we have in iCIMS’ iGIVE Back program,” said Ron Kasner, Chief Corporate Development Officer, iCIMS. “We are proud to announce that this year the company has a record number of employees volunteering their time to this clean-up. It is great to see the iGIVE Back program flourish and witness the positive changes the iCIMS team has had on the local community,” concluded Kasner.
“When we launched iGIVE Back, environmental causes were a logical place to focus the company’s charitable giving efforts,” said Colin Day, CEO, iCIMS, Inc. “Our product, the iCIMS Talent Platform, enables companies to go paperless and avoid printing out resumes and other necessary onboarding paperwork. So, we see our environmental efforts extending beyond our new home in Matawan, and making a global difference,” concluded Day.
Due to the success of the iGIVE Back program, iCIMS has been recognized by several award programs and environmental organizations for the company’s ongoing commitment to helping protect and beautify green spaces. iCIMS has been a recipient of NJBIZ’s Green Leadership Award, Earth Share of New Jersey’s Environmental Leadership Awards, and has also been recognized as a finalist in the American Business Awards for Best Corporate Environmental Responsibility.
