Emerging Solutions Dedicated to CSR, Urges others

Chicago, IL. – Emerging Solutions, an Emtec, Inc. (OTCQB: ETEC) company and leader in Information Technology (IT) consulting services, today announced that its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, focused on having a positive impact on society, is addressing the needs of many organizations this year including Children’s Memorial Hospital and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Rather than give out material gifts for the holidays, Emerging Solutions is honoring employees and clients by making donations on their behalf to the two charities. The company is an avid supporter of these and other charitable foundations annually, and its employees routinely volunteer their time and skills to help local communities.

In addition to implementing its own successful CSR program, Emerging Solutions is dedicated to helping other companies better understand how to garner support and implement their own initiatives. Speaking at a recent event hosted by the Business Marketing Association of Chicago, Andee Harris, senior vice president of marketing for Emerging Solutions presented on “Giving Back through Corporate Responsibility.” This talk highlighted the importance of corporate responsibility and the best practices companies can employ to make a valuable impact on their local communities. Harris underscored the importance of CSR programs especially in the wake of government and social service programs having trouble keeping up with growing community needs.

“Our company truly understands the need for community involvement and we were proud to take part in this event to further educate other professionals on the importance of companies working together to make a positive impact within their local communities,” said Harris. “It is critical that companies take more responsibility given the continued decline of involvement from the government and social service programs. Their needs are steadily on the rise, and without help from the corporate world their initiatives cannot be met. ”

Emerging Solutions and its parent company Emtec are involved in continuous efforts to benefit the communities it serves outside of Children’s Memorial Hospital and The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. They are regular supporters of The Fairview Foundation in Minneapolis, Minnesota and take part in Habitat for Humanity and the Chase Corporate Challenge every year. Emtec specifically contributes to many charitable organizations as well, from Toys for Tots and the Boy Scouts of America to the Vietnam Veterans of America and the American Red Cross. The company also does 50 percent matches for employee donations and hosts an annual golf tournament to raise money for Disabled American Veterans. Not only do these efforts benefit the community, they also provide the chance for each employee’s personal growth.
