Arpin Group, Inc. Receives Global Citizenship Award at Cartus 2016 Global Network ConferenceOctober 11, 2016
Arpin Group, Inc. was honored with a Global Citizenship Award at Cartus Corporation’s 2016 Global Network Conference, held October 3-4 in Washington, DC at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, for its corporate social responsibility initiatives. The Cartus Global Network is Cartus’s industry-leading worldwide service provider network, and the company’s Global Citizenship Award recognizes a deeper appreciation for the companies and individuals in the Network who have exemplified Cartus’s core values of service, collaboration, and respect; all fundamental aspects of good global citizenship. The theme of this year’s conference was ‘Exceeding Customer Expectations’.
Arpin Group, Inc. was awarded a Global Citizenship Award for its outstanding contributions to the health, welfare, and safety of others, and/or for improvements in a community’s quality of life on a national or international level.
“Helping people is at the core of what we do, and that extends to our customers, coworkers, neighbors and communities,” said Mike Brannan, senior vice president, Global Supply Chain Management. “Giving back is a part of our company culture, which is something that sets Cartus apart in the best of ways. We created the Global Citizenship Award because we wanted to recognize network suppliers like Arpin Group, who exemplifies this same commitment to strong, conscientious global citizenship. We value this at Cartus. We value our network providers who share this dedication.”
At Arpin Group, our Mission and Values guide our corporate culture and social responsibility. Arpin Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries follow a “4Focus” system to maintain the balance between the corporate and social needs. These “4Focus” areas are (1) innovative solutions; (2) ethics and behavior; (3) environmental health and safety; and (4) community service. We will continue to advance towards a more sustainable future on our journey to ultimately manage a company that is in balance with the economy, community, and the environment.
Moreover, 2016 marks the third year since Arpin Group’s employees set into motion a permanent solution for providing aid to the people and communities where it’s needed most. The 501(c)(3) charitable organization, aptly known as Arpin Strong, continues to take on new challenges as it expands its outreach efforts to the global communities where our customers and employees live and work. Since the official programs inception, Arpin Strong has donated over $135K to support 100+ non-profit organizations and individuals in need.
“Cartus’ standards for Global Citizenship are admiringly high,” said Bob Sullivan, sr. vice president of Arpin Group. “Because of this, we’re proud to be a part of Cartus’ Global Network, but we’re especially proud to have received this designation, which recognizes our mutual commitment to global citizenship.”
