LivePerson Snags Platinum Ranking from the Maala CSR Index
We’re excited to announce that Maala, an Israeli nonprofit membership organization that encourages corporate social responsibility (CSR) in business, awarded LivePerson the high-ranking platinum distinction in its 2016 CSR Index. This index, which has been produced since 2003, judges companies on their performance in six pillars: environment, business ethics, human rights and work environment, community involvement, corporate governance, and social and environmental reporting.
LivePerson was given a perfect score (10/10) for employee volunteering and contribution. LivePerson Cares, our community relations program, is dedicated to making a positive impact on our community. To this end, we empower employees around the world to help others — one of our core values. Volunteers plan or participate in activities that impact a wide and varied audience base but, at the end of the day, support a shared goal of creating meaningful connections. Chat for Charity is one arm of LivePerson Cares. It donates our platform, LiveEngage, to various charities and NGOs, giving those most in need an easy-to-access service and direct line to assistance.
Additionally, LivePerson received high marks for ethics, employee health and well-being, supply chain management, diversity and inclusion, donations, and environmental management.
“We’re thrilled to receive this platinum distinction,” says Eran Vanounou, chief technology officer and LivePerson Israel CEO. “We work together to ensure we are a positive value-add to the community around us. Corporate social responsibility is a major pillar of how we do business at LivePerson. We’re proud of our program and employees.”
This was the first year LivePerson has participated in the rankings, which give special consideration to issues of transparency, philanthropic policy, and CSR reporting. The application process spanned six months and culminated in a ceremony held Wednesday, June 29 — the opening day of the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
In LivePerson offices around the world, each and every employee strives to live up to the high standards expected of them as well as give back to their communities in a meaningful way. Congratulations to our team in Ra’anana on this honor! We look forward to surpassing our ranking next year.
