Warren, NJ — October 11, 2016 — Knowledgent, the data and analytics firm, announced today their selection by Consulting Magazine for the 2016 Excellence in Social & Community Investment Awards. Consulting magazine recognizes that some of the most satisfying client work that consulting firms are doing these days is for a higher purpose. Each year, consulting firms invest hundreds of millions of dollars in time, effort and sweat equity on engagements that serve a social and community cause.
Knowledgent Cares is Knowledgent’s corporate outreach program, dedicated to giving back to the community. The firm’s employees, known as “Informationists,” organize, participate, and donate to various causes on a regular basis.
“Knowledgent Cares started in the very early days of the firm”, said Peter Gibson, Chief Executive Partner at Knowledgent. “It’s important to have a passion about work and career, but it’s also important to have a passion about charity and giving. We want to be impactful in everything we do—with our clients and in our communities.”
Since 2014, the firm has supported more than 40 charities that are a combination of our clients’ interests and their own Informationists’. That allows Knowledgent to impact a lot different people and organizations. One such organization is Investors Bank, a client Knowledgent’s been working with since 2015. Knowledgent and Investors Bank partnered to participate in Walk With Us to Cure Lupus.
“I wasn’t even aware of Knowledgent’s philanthropic activities, but it turns out we have a lot of the same core common values,” said Kevin Cummings, CEO of Investors Bank. “Knowledgent got involved with us and we had over 150 people at the walk. The Knowledgent people walked with the Investors people. We probably had the most people of any company at the walk.”
“We’re both very growth centric organizations, and we’ve both been on rapid growth trajectories the last few years,” Gibson continued. “The big picture is this— being successful in business allows us to be more impactful in charity.”
