Life Technologies has been selected by the National Conference on Citizenship and Points of Light as one of the top community-minded companies in the U.S. The organization announced its Civic 50 list, created to identify and recognize companies that make a difference in their communities.
The 50 companies that were chosen not only engage and work to benefit their communities; they make community engagement an integral part of their corporate culture, and recognize that community involvement can have a bottom-line impact, making the company a top choice in the talent market and inspiring customer loyalty.
Launched in 2012, the Civic 50 survey is the first to scientifically measure corporate civic behavior, filling a notable gap in existing research and creating a roadmap for businesses seeking to become better stewards of their community. A partnership among Bloomberg News, the National Conference on Citizenship and Points of Light, the survey specifically examines how businesses engage the communities they serve and align these practices with their underlying core business competencies.
“We are so proud to be recognized for our efforts in employee volunteerism,” said Heather Virdo of the Life Technologies Foundation, “and we’re excited to continue our community outreach efforts with our new K-12 hands-on science program, InnovatioNation, which will bring the science of Life Technologies into our nation’s classrooms this school year.”
Life Technologies takes great pride in our continued efforts to be a vital, engaged part of the communities in which we work. Shaping discovery and improving life is more than just a business model for us; it’s a philosophy that extends to how we interact with the communities that do so much to support us.
