JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- CSX’s Pride in Service initiative was recognized with Engage for Good’s 2020 Gold Halo Award for Employee Engagement.
In 2018, CSX launched Pride in Service, a signature initiative to support and recognize military, veterans and first responder service members and their families. The initiative was quickly embraced by employees across the company’s 23-state footprint who have shown their passion for those who serve and generously donated their time to volunteer with nonprofit partners: Blue Star Families, First Responders Children’s Foundation, Operation Gratitude, Operation Homefront and Wounded Warrior Project. From connecting with families to bridge the civilian-military divide, to raising funds and participating in events, to writing letters of gratitude and packing care pouches, CSX employees have contributed nearly 5,000 hours to the cause and reached 85,000 individuals in the first full year of this program.
“CSX is honored to be recognized by Engage for Good with this prestigious gold halo award for our Pride in Service program,” said Nathan Goldman, executive vice president and chief legal officer for CSX. “At CSX, service is an integral part of our culture and we are so proud that approximately one in five of our employees have served our country and communities, either in the military or as a first responder.”
The Halo Awards, presented by Engage for Good, are North America’s highest honors for corporate social initiatives and cause marketing. This marks the 18th year that Engage for Good will honor businesses and nonprofits with Halo Awards.
