New York, NY – Assurant has been named a 2021 honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
The Civic 50 provides a national standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources to drive social impact in their communities and company. The honorees are companies with annual U.S. revenues of at least $1 billion and are selected based on four dimensions of their corporate citizenship and social impact programs – investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.
“Holding true to our Assurant Foundation focus on Protecting, Connecting and Inspiring, our employees bring the Assurant Cares spirit to life by volunteering with our charitable partners to strengthen the communities where we live and work,” said Alan Colberg, CEO of Assurant, Inc. “We greatly appreciate the commitment to positive social impact embodied by the Points of Light and the outstanding work of the honorees that join us in 2021 on The Civic 50.”
“Points of Light believes that corporate leadership and commitment to civic engagement is critical to strengthening communities,” said Natalye Paquin, president and CEO, Points of Light. We thank Assurant for their investment in the communities where they live and work and look forward to supporting them in leveraging their time, talent and assets to make transformational change.”
On June 16, Points of Light will publicly announce and celebrate The Civic 50 2021 honorees as part of a virtual event that will feature highlights from the survey including equity and diversity findings, new corporate racial equity research presented by Edelman CEO, Lisa Ross and a conversation on corporate leadership in advancing equity with PolicyLink CEO Michael McAfee and Points of Light CEO, Natalye Paquin.
Since it was launched in 2012, The Civic 50 has provided a roadmap for good corporate citizenship and showcases how committed companies are moving social impact, civic engagement and community to the center of their business. The survey is administered by True Impact, a company specializing in helping organizations maximize and measure their social and business value and consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform the scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
