Ascensus Donates Nearly 900 Hours of Service with Volunteer Time Off Program
Dresher, Pennsylvania – January 17, 2012 – Ascensus, a leading retirement plan solutions provider, marked the end of 2011 with the completion of its inaugural Volunteer Time Off (VTO) Program. In 2011, nearly 200 Ascensus employees participated in the program, which provides paid time off for volunteer activities in their surrounding communities.
Driven by the company’s Core Values of People Matter, Quality First and Integrity Always®, the Ascensus VTO program was piloted in 2010 and, based on the positive employee response, fully launched last year. Since January 2011, employees have donated nearly 900 hours of community service to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, United Way, Special Olympics and the Salvation Army.
“Ascensus strives to play an active role in enriching the communities where we live and work through our volunteer efforts,” said Amy Walker, Vice President, Human Resources at Ascensus. “We commend our employees who have used the VTO program to promote our Core Values in their local communities and we look forward to increasing participation in this program in 2012. Our hopes are that employees will continue to enjoy the program, and we will make even more of an impact in our communities in the future!”
