COLUMBUS, GA.–June 29, 2016–TSYS (NYSE: TSS) announced today its recognition as one of America’s most community-minded companies in The Civic 50, an initiative that identifies and recognizes companies for their commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities where they do business. The survey was conducted by Points of Light, the nation’s definitive experts on civic engagement.
“To receive this honor for the third time since 2013, is a testament to our company, and our team members all over the world,” said Troy Woods, chairman and chief executive officer, TSYS. “I’m always amazed, every year, at the amount of time invested and the involvement our team members have in their respective communities. Last year, in the U.S. alone, our team members logged an estimated 75,000 hours of company sponsored volunteerism. This recognition is because of their efforts, and an ongoing commitment by our company to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.”
The Civic 50 survey was developed in partnership with a high-profile working group of researchers and industry thought leaders. It evaluates companies on several criteria, including the quantity and impact of financial and human resources applied to civic improvement, how a company’s community engagement activities support its business interests, and how a company measures the social and business value of its community engagement programs.
“Since 2012, we have seen a notable shift in the survey results in a direction that speaks to the commitment of American companies to connect values of community service and civic engagement to the culture and operating practices of their business,” said Jennifer Lawson, executive director of the Corporate Institute at Points of Light.
The survey was administered by True Impact, a company specializing in helping organizations maximize and measure their social and business value, and is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
