)-- David R. Rhode, managing partner of Vaco Raleigh (http://www.vaco.com/raleigh), an executive placement and consulting firm, has announced that Vaco was named a finalist for the “A Better World” Award, presented by the Triangle Business Journal, for the company’s passion and commitment to local nonprofit organizations in the Raleigh area in 2011. Fifteen Vaco Raleigh employees volunteered for nonprofit work through organized company programs or board service in 2011. Organizations that were supported include Triangle Family Services, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, American Red Cross and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Vaco promotes corporate citizenship by encouraging active employee involvement in groups and organizations that support its professionals in their growth and career goals. It is important for Vaco employees to be a community resource and look for organizations that will allow them to use their skills to help others reach their career goals.
“It is an honor for Vaco Raleigh to be named as a finalist for the Triangle Business Journal’s ‘A Better World Award,’” said Rhode. “Vaco’s management encourages every member of the staff to belong to, and be active in, at least one community support organization and one business support organization, but everyone chooses to do far more than that.”
