Consulting® Magazine Recognizes McGladrey for Community Outreach
McGladrey – the nation’s leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – was recently named as a recipient of Consulting® magazine’s Excellence in Social & Community Investment Award. McGladrey was recognized for its various community outreach initiatives during the firm’s annual Volunteer Day.
"We often recognize consulting firms that are doing well, and now we want to recognize those firms that are doing good," said Joseph Kornik, publisher and editor-in-chief of Consulting magazine. "Although it's not widely publicized, the consulting profession does a tremendous amount of pro bono, discounted and volunteer work to make the world a better place. We're honored to shine a spotlight on these firms' altruistic efforts with the Excellence in Social & Community Investment awards."
“At McGladrey, stewardship is one of our core values,” said Gary Sturisky, national consulting leader at McGladrey. “Since our firm’s inception nearly 90 years ago, McGladrey has showcased its rich tradition of giving back through multiple initiatives, including our annual Volunteer Day. This year marked the sixth annual Volunteer Day, with the largest participation level to date: more than 2,600 volunteers. Volunteer Day allows McGladrey employees and clients to join forces to strengthen their relationships within the community.”
“We know that it’s important to our employees that they give back to their communities,” said Sara Webber Laczo, senior director of corporate communications at McGladrey. “We began McGladrey Volunteer Day in 2010 to encourage their passion for community service and to provide an avenue for them to get involved in meaningful volunteer opportunities during the work day. This year our new McGladrey Foundation added financial support to volunteer day through its Dollars for Doers program, which supports our employees’ time with grants to 501(c)(3) charitable organizations aligned with the foundation’s mission.”
Consulting® magazine will feature a special Social & Community Investment editorial section in its October issue, following a winner recognition gala awards dinner on Thurs., Sept. 10 in New York.
