Now in its third year, The Civic 50 survey evaluates participating companies based on the investment, integration, institutionalization, and impact of their community engagement programs and policies.

Community engagement is an integral part of business strategy for some of America’s largest corporations, according to this year’s Civic 50 ranking released today by Points of Light, with support from Bloomberg L.P. This year’s survey shows that companies are dedicating their time, talent and resources to strengthen their communities and are in turn, seeing a positive business impact, and enhanced employee engagement, skill-development, and diversity and inclusion.

“At Bloomberg, we strongly believe that companies do not have to choose between philanthropy, engagement, sustainability, and business results. We know that doing good is good for business,” said Peter Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg L.P. “We congratulate the 2014 honorees and hope the lessons they’ve shared will help others grow their businesses, transform their communities, and improve the lives of those they serve.”
