The Civic 50, an annual initiative that recognizes companies that go above and beyond to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business, has named Hasbro Inc. one of America’s most community-minded companies.
Between Hasbro’s philanthropic programs that aim to help the lives of children in need through play and the power of service, and the Team Hasbro employee volunteer program that gives employees four hours of paid time off per month to volunteer with child-focused organizations, they company has been recognized in The Civic 50 for the second consecutive year. Additionally, Hasbro was also recognized in two other categories, including Best in Consumer Discretionary Industry and Best in Mid-Cap Market.
Applicants for this year’s Civic 50 were evaluated based on how much financial and civic resources were applied to the civic movement, how these resources maximized the impact on the community, how the company’s community engagement is supported within the company’s policies, and several other criteria.
Experts on civic engagement, such as The National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) and Points of Light, conducted the survey. True Impact, a company that specializes in helping organizations maximize and measure their social and business value, administered the survey, and a cross-sector team of qualified evaluators reviewed the responses.
