The winners of PR Daily’s 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility Awards!

Today, customers, clients, employees and the public are more engaged and informed than ever before. The Internet and social media have made it easier to hold organizations more accountable for their actions with their employees, the environment or civil society. At the same time, these tools produce even more opportunities for organizations to spread awareness, affirm their commitments and engage with their audiences.

Ragan Communications and PR Daily believe in recognizing organizations that go beyond their corporate goals to do imaginative, even unheard-of, public service and clearly communicate this service to their customers and the public.

Announcing the winners of the 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility Awards!

The organizations listed below have earned our top prizes in 20-plus CSR categories for their commitment to giving back within their organization, to their communities or to the nation. Our judges, after carefully reviewing all of this year’s entries, are confident you will be inspired by their examples to do even more good in your organization.

We congratulate our winners and invite you to study their CSR stories. Maybe next year we’ll hear how your organization is doing its part to make our world a little bit better.
