CAMARILLO, Calif., Aug. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Providea Conferencing, LLC has teamed up with Every Monday Matters (EMM) to launch a global Corporate Social Responsibility Program (CSRP).  As a world leader in providing telepresence solutions to enterprises that utilize technology to change the lives of others, Providea has always embraced social consciousness.  By implementing EMM's CSRP, Providea is taking their social responsibility initiatives one step further by empowering its employees to take a stance on the front lines of social change.

"We believe that every individual matters and taking this mindset out into our community has a profound impact on the culture of our company as well as making a global impact," said Jill Price, EVP of Sales & Marketing at Providea Conferencing. "It takes one small change by each individual to amount to an enormous change in the world.  If each person feels empowered to make a contribution with their time and efforts, it sends a message to the world that the 'power of one' is real... and this grows exponentially."

One Monday, One Employee, One Company at a Time

Designed to significantly build corporate morale, orchestrate community involvement, inspire personal empowerment and create positive brand recognition, the EMM CSR program is quickly becoming a powerful CSR solution for companies of all sizes.

"Companies, like Providea, recognize that it is no longer enough to just to write a check for a cause and coin themselves socially responsible. This ignores today's employee. Employees want to be involved, roll up their sleeves, and feel that they've played a role in making a difference in the world," said Every Monday Matters CEO Matthew Emerzian.

To kick off the annual initiative, EMM organized a day of giving back.  Special projects were created with local non-profits including the Community Roots Garden, where volunteers prepared compost and harvested vegetables which were then donated to local shelters and food banks; the Habitat For Humanity Restore, where employees helped to organize and clean; and the Lighthouse Rescue Mission for Women and Children, where a team painted, cleaned, and prepped the house for two incoming families.

The impact that this one day had on the lives of so many families and individuals in the local community is proof that if each person takes on the challenge to step out into their local community and spend their time enriching the lives of others; then the world becomes a better place for everyone.  All of the volunteers walked away with a renewed sense of purpose and a bond that can only come from taking the time to show others that "YOU MATTER."
