ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – DISH Network has been named to The Civic 50 Colorado list by CSR Solutions of Colorado and Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
The designation recognizes DISH as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in Colorado determined by an independently administered and scored survey. The Civic 50 Colorado awards, modeled after Points of Light’s national program, provides a standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies use their time, skills and resources to impact their communities.
“Our overarching goal is to make a positive impact by connecting team members and DISH resources with the local communities we and our customers call home,” said Caity Curtis, DISH Head of Corporate Citizenship. “Service and excellence are part of DISH’s DNA, and we are honored to be recognized for bringing those values to life through our community engagement and sustainability efforts.”
DISH executives and employees have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to DISH Cares, the company’s corporate citizenship program, through participation in team-based volunteer opportunities and by providing DISH products and services to key philanthropic areas such as disaster recovery and support for active military, veterans and their families.
The Civic 50 Colorado survey is administered by True Impact, a company specializing in helping organizations maximize and measure their social and business value. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that evaluate companies on categories including employee volunteer statistics, environmental initiatives and purposeful product integration.
