ATS wins Communitas Award for its strong community involvement and commitment
6/25/2014 – American Technology Services, Inc. (ATS®) announced today that it has been named a winner of the Communitas Awards, an international effort governed by the Association of Marketing & Communication Professionals (AMCP), to recognize exceptional businesses, organizations, and individuals for excellence in community service and corporate social responsibility.
In the spirit of communitas – people helping people, Communitas award winners unselfishly give of themselves and their resources, as well as continually innovating the way they do business to benefit their communities. Communitas nominees are evaluated based on the extent and effectiveness of their community involvement programs. The size and potential scope of the nominee organizations are also taken into consideration.
ATS was founded with the primary purpose of bringing high-quality technology services to small and mid-sized organizations where both quality and affordability are critical. Throughout the years, by working extensively with many local and nonprofit clients, the company has developed a strong sense of responsibility for enhancing not only clients’ operations but also for supporting their social involvement efforts. While the bottom line is important to a business’ survival, ATS takes pride in its concerted effort to contribute to the well-being of clients, employees, other stakeholders, and the community in which it operates. Each year, the company dedicates resources and commitment to foster growth in the community through helping families and children who are in need, assisting educational efforts, maintaining business integrity, and advocating for a sustainable environment.
“By recognizing individuals, organizations, and companies for their volunteerism and socially responsible business practices, we are hoping not only to bring attention to great programs, but are working with community-minded leaders to make the spirit of communitas an essential element of every business,” said Ed Dalheim, Executive Director of AMCP.
“The local community has provided great support to our business operations for more than twenty years, and it is our duty to give back to the community in return,” said Jeff Chandler, ATS President. “Being recognized by the Communitas Awards underscores ATS’ strong sense of responsibility and commitment to our community’s well-being.”
