arrow up with handsReady to leave the business scandals behind and embrace the organizations and leaders who made a positive difference in 2013? So am I!

This series of blogs gives a big “thumbs up” to individuals, entrepreneurs, and organizations who are role models in ethical and progressive business practices. These innovators are leading the way into a new year with strategies to not only thrive in business, but make a positive social and economic impact. Many for-profit organizations worked hand-in-hand with non-profits to make a difference at both regional and national levels.

Supporting our Veterans

TIGERS salutes organizations initiating policies to onboard military men and women transitioning out of the service. From offering resources that provide teambuilding activities    and advancement opportunities to interactive employment workshops, these organizations are making a difference in the lives of military personnel and their families.

A TIGERS Roar for Today’s Youth

TIGERS is also proud to recognize today’s youth as they step up to the plate to volunteer their time and services for causes they are passionate about. From donating birthday presents to needy children to volunteering at homeless shelters, these kids are worth raving about. Our youth is also developing sustainable businesses that are not only profitable, but socially responsible as well. They are creating jobs such as innovating non-traditional agriculture practices to grow and harvest produce in a school-based greenhouse.

The Best of the Best

There are over a dozen blogs and articles in this series that highlight exceptional individuals and companies – here at home and around the globe. With a “big pat on the back” to those innovators who pushed forward to make a noticeable difference, we congratulate those who offer sustainable solutions in business, corporate citizenship, and social responsibility. Want to find out if your company can win an award for ethics? Find out under “Making a Difference in the Workplace!”

So here they are – the 2013 blogs that give credit where credit is due to outstanding organizations, groups, and individuals. What a great way to ring in the New Year on a positive note!
