Challenge:

 Community service is an effective way for a company to improve employee satisfaction, increase employee retention rates and gain goodwill in the community. The Prudential Financial offices in Atlanta decided to commit their resources to the support of one organization. The challenge was to find one that would be acceptable to the corporation, as well as the greatest number of employees.

 

Solution:

As the chairman of the management committee of Prudential Connection for Atlanta, it was my responsibility to successfully manage the selection process. First, we defined a set of criteria for the selection of an organization to benefit from Prudential’s support. After reviewing a number of organizations, the field was narrowed to three. These three groups made presentations to the committee. The committee conducted site visits, researched the viability of each, and made a selection for Prudential.

 

Results:

 Prudential selected Chris Kids, a local organization supporting families and children in need. The relationship has been a great success! We partnered with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to orchestrate times when Chris Kids worked alongside Prudential employees to sort food. Prudential employees tackled maintenance projects at the organizations group homes around Atlanta. We held back-to-school backpack drives, holiday gift drives, book drives, and more. As a result, Prudential Financial received the 2003 Child Welfare League of America Corporate Advocate Award.

 

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jackie on numerous projects where she has been a key player in achieving the desired results. Jackie’s dedication and enthusiasm were critical to the overall success of the relationship between Prudential and Chris Kids. The high level of associate participation and engagement in Chris Kids activities was a positive reinforcement of her ability to select the right organizational “fit” for Prudential and its staff. I have continued to personally support this organization over the years due to the introduction Jackie provided and the interaction she established between the groups.”—Cindy Estle, Vice President of Operations
