CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Huron Consulting Group (NASDAQ: HURN), a leading provider of business consulting services, today announced that the Company has been recognized by Consulting magazine as a recipient of its Excellence in Social & Community Investment Award. Huron was selected for its pro bono work with Test Positive Awareness Network (TPAN).
“We are honored to once again receive the Excellence in Social & Community Investment Award from Consulting magazine,” said C. Mark Hussey, chief operating officer and chief financial officer, Huron Consulting Group. “Our employees are extremely passionate about both the clients they serve and giving back to the community. Working with TPAN gave us an opportunity to combine both of those passions. I want to thank TPAN for the opportunity to work together and Huron’s employees for their dedication to serving our communities.”
Huron was selected for its work with TPAN, whose mission is to empower individuals living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS to live open, healthy, and productive lives. TPAN needed assistance developing a strategic plan, addressing short-term opportunities with their newsletter Positively Aware and creating a digital roadmap of potential future technologies. TPAN continues to work with Huron on refining and executing their five-year strategic plan.
“When I first joined TPAN as CEO more than a year ago, I was concerned about initiating a strategic plan given the vast amount of change we had been through as an organization. Then I met the Huron staff. They were so knowledgeable about our agency and the surrounding community resources that I knew we were in capable hands,” said Patti Capouch, chief executive officer, TPAN. “Huron treated TPAN as a paying client and not a pro bono client. I’m excited to implement their recommendations and improve service delivery for our clients and our community.”
Huron, through its Huron Helping Hands program, encourages year-round employee involvement in civic sponsorships, community service, pro bono activities and charitable giving through its matching gifts program.
