Pariveda Solutions Earns Houston Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthropy Award
HOUSTON (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 20, 2017 - Pariveda Solutions, a leading management consulting firm that specializes in improving clients' performance, is pleased to announce that our organization ranked #8 in the Houston Business Journal’s inaugural Corporate Philanthropy Awards.
Pariveda maintains a focus on developing employees to their highest potential, and the company recognizes that contributing to the local community is a vital part of connecting personal goals with philanthropic action. Servant leadership is one of the five core values at Pariveda and is supported by a culture that promotes connectedness and community service as an essential development component of the individual and entire organization.
Pariveda restructured our summer college internship program to be fully philanthropic. Our interns partner with a local nonprofit during an eleven-week project and deliver incredible impact for the nonprofit organization and the community it serves. Through the philanthropic internship program alone, our Houston office contributes over 7,000 volunteer hours with the community.
Throughout its 11-week internship program this past summer, Pariveda welcomed five interns who participated in developing pro-bono technology solutions for BARC Foundation, the nonprofit foundation supporting Houston’s Animal Shelter & Adoption Facility whose mission is to improve the quality of life for animals in Houston. The highlight of the BARC Foundation program is rescuing at-risk animals and promoting adoption through branded materials.
Pariveda and its intern team built BARCly, an innovative approach to showcasing shelter animals for adoption. This collaborative effort resulted in a comprehensive platform that promotes shelter pets and helps pet owners locate lost animals through an accessible and interactive mobile-friendly website.
“We owe a huge thanks to the Pariveda team for making it easier than ever for Houstonians to view and learn about adoptable animals at BARC,” said Ashtyn Rivet, BARC Deputy Assistant Director. “The team’s expertise and insight helped make the dream of having a BARC mobile website into a reality. This interactive website will help connect potential adopters with their perfect furry companion, giving more of Houston’s homeless pets a second chance at the life they deserve.”
Before the Houston Business Journal revealed Pariveda as a Corporate Philanthropy honoree, Hurricane Harvey devastated the Houston area, affecting people across the city. The Houston Fin family rallied together and spent countless hours demolishing flooded homes, donating and distributing supplies, and offering aid in every capacity possible. Harvey was telling for what it means to be a Fin. Pariveda immediately took action through our connected mentor trees to ensure the safety of every Fin. We made a commitment to each of the displaced families to remain with them through the entire process — until we were celebrating their move back home! It is estimated that nearly every Houston Fin participated in relief efforts and gave in excess of 1,500 hours in just a few weeks.
Houston Office Managing Vice President Sean McCall commented, “Fins helping Fins is a reflection of the integrity and resolve of people in our firm. It’s incredible to see the way we take care of each other and our community. Investing in our community and individuals cultivates lifelong relationships to identify needs and create meaningful solutions.”
Allison Esenkova, Houston Vice President, also praised employees’ commitment to Houston in its time of need, saying, “The powerful sense of community we have at Pariveda is evident in the actions of our Fins following Hurricane Harvey. I am proud to be part of this exceptional team, and of the contributions we made within our Houston community.”
