<strong>Atlanta &mdash; Oct. 19</strong><br />HRWORKS, a national recruitment firm, has been recognized by the Metro Atlanta Corporate Volunteer Council for the company&rsquo;s CHARITYWORKS employee volunteer program. <br /><br />CHARITYWORKS is the recipient of a 2007 IMPACT (Involvement Means People Acting Together) award in the category of Innovative/Collaborative Program.<br /><br />HRWORKS employees nominate the charitable causes and make the final selections of which organizations to support. An employee-elected leader manages the selection process and guides the project managers for each initiative. Projects rotate monthly.<br /><br />&ldquo;Since CHARITYWORKS is employee-driven, the diverse array of philanthropies that we support reflects the differing interests of our employees,&rdquo; said Kurt Ronn, HRworks president and founder. &ldquo;Employees, regardless of job function, collaborate, resulting in broader volunteer efforts and a more sustainable program.&rdquo;<br /><br />In 2007, CHARITYWORKS will conduct more than 22 events or activities, supporting a wide range of charitable causes. <br /><br />For some endeavors, employees donate their time and talent. For others, they offer financial contributions or collect needed supplies. More than 80 percent of HRWORKS employees participate.<br /><br />Examples of 2007 initiatives include constructing a Habitat for Humanity house; hosting the basketball competition at the Special Olympics Georgia Indoor Winter Games; donating clothing and accessories to Dress for Success, which aids disadvantaged women; and &ldquo;adopting&rdquo; U.S. servicemen as part of the AnySoldier.com program.<br /><br />&ldquo;CHARITYWORKS truly makes an impact on our community,&rdquo; said Terry Long, a human resources consultant for HRWORKS who was elected by his fellow employees as to chair the 2007 CHARITYWORKS program. &ldquo;CHARITYWORKS is an extension of the passion our employees have for numerous charitable causes.&rdquo;
