Eagle's Charitable Work Recognized by Staffing Industry

Canadian IT Staffing Company Wins its Second ACSESS Community Service Award

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Eagle Professional Resources (Eagle) is proud to be the recipient of the 2008 Community Service Award presented by the Association of Canadian Search, Employment, and Staffing Services (ACSESS). To be eligible for this award, both a company and its employees must be involved in public service activities that return value to the community by supporting charities, educational and community groups. This is the second time the Canadian leader in IT staffing has won the award for showing both strong commitment to, and concern for, all of the communities in which it operates.

Eagle has a strong community service focus which has been integrated into its corporate culture. Not only has Eagle instituted a number of programs related to education, community service and industry involvement, the philanthropic leader also supports a growing number of organizations across Canada including, its charity of choice, the United Way. Along with the support offered at the corporate level, staff members are also heavily involved with their own financial support, as well as volunteerism to a great many charitable organizations. Finally Eagle's commitment to communities transcends just charitable support through the 14 scholarships it provides to college students across the country each year.

Eagle CEO, Kevin Dee, received the award on May 8th at ACSESS's 10th anniversary conference at the Holiday Inn on King in Toronto. "This is an industry that gives a great deal in support of charities," said Dee. "We are truly honoured to have been singled out for this award amongst such excellent corporate citizens."

Eagle last won the ACSESS Community Service Award in 2002 and is the first national company to receive it a second time. Eagle is very proud to have been recognized for its corporate philanthropy by several organizations including: MASC, the Children's Aid Foundation (CAF), and most recently, an Achievement Award received from the United Way.
