Double CSR award wins for iResearch
Global thought leadership agency, iResearch Services (www.iresearchservices.com) and its Foundation, The Giving for Good (GfG) Foundation (https://givingforgoodfoundation.org) announces their double award win at The International CSR Excellence Awards 2021.
“We’re extremely proud and humbled to have won CSR Excellence Awards for Equal Opportunities (silver) and Initiatives (bronze) at The International CSR Excellence Awards 2021,” says Yogesh Shah, CEO, iResearch Services and Founder of GfG. “iResearch Services established the Giving for Good Foundation (GfG) in 2018 to divert maximum aid towards marginalized communities, and being recognized for our efforts globally is an excellent reminder that we are on the right track.
These two accolades, awarded for Initiatives and Equal Opportunities recognize GfG initiatives that continue to inspire staff across the iResearch Services team at every level. During the pandemic’s first wave in April 2020, Yogesh Shah (CEO of iResearch Services and Founder of GfG) and iResearch employees donated a day of their salaries to relief efforts raising funds that helped feed more than 500 families.
The judges commented: “iResearch Services and Giving for Good are proud sponsors of a global virtual race that benefits UNICEF’s drive to increase access to education across the world – raising more than $100,000 in the process. Staff at iResearch Services have covered hundreds of miles in this virtual event, raising money and awareness for the cause. By taking part in such physical challenges, the broader workforce benefits from increased engagement and team bonding.”
The GfG Foundation, created by iResearch Services, demonstrates a tangible commitment to the community in Pune, India, across education and skills development, environmental resilience and community health and development. Both organizations are thrilled to share their two award wins in the category for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
iResearch Services competed against more than 500 other nominations in the International CSR Excellence Awards 2021 and successfully won the Silver trophy for Equal Opportunities and Bronze for Initiatives at a glittering presentation ceremony at the world-famous Waldorf, London, on September 2 7.
