Hazlet, NJ (PRWEB) July 10, 2007
iCIMS, a leading Software as a Service (SaaS) provider of Talent Platforms (http://www. icims. com/content/irecruiter. asp), announced the results of its Clean Ocean Action (http://www. cleanoceanaction. org/) (COA) beach sweep today. Nearly forty iCIMS employees traveled to Sandy Hook National Park to assist the COA in their cleanup and research efforts on June 22, 2007.
The Clean Ocean Action is a nonprofit organization dedicated to cleaning the ocean and shoreline. More than just cleanup, the COA emphasizes data collection to influence policies that will eliminate the sources of pollution. The organization also takes part in educating people about the sources and hazards of polluting.
ICIMS employees spent the day clearing a one mile stretch of the Sandy Hook beach, minutes from the organization’s Hazlet headquarters. Thousands of pieces of plastic, paper garbage, and other debris were removed from the coast.
The COA beach sweep is the latest example of iCIMS’ commitment to giving back to the environment. Green-e Certified (http://www. green-e. org/), iCIMS is a zero-sum consumer that actively donates to renewable wind energy programs. Ultimately, iCIMS generates more renewable energy through credits each year than it consumes in non-renewable energy. At an employee level, iCIMS partners with Earth Share of New Jersey (http://www. earthsharenj. org/), an organization that motivates citizens to take an active part in improving the health of the local environment.
Initially launched in 2006, iCIMS’ iCARE initiative enables employees and their families to donate their time, talent or treasure towards environmental causes. The Sandy Hook beach sweep is just one of the hands-on environmental programs the company participates in regularly. Employees are granted two days per year for "green" volunteerism, contributing to environmental progression through non-financial means. "These programs are a great opportunity for our employees to get out and see the results of their efforts," said iCIMS’ President and CEO, Colin Day. "The response to the iCARE program has been tremendous so far and I look forward to seeing the program continue to grow into the future."
