Charlotte, NC – Oct. 12, 2015 – Jabian’s Charlotte office was recognized by Consulting Magazine for its commitment to the community as one of the Inaugural Excellence in Social & Community Investment Awards recipients .
Jabian Senior Manager, Will Funderburg worked on a pro bono project for the Girls Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council in Charlotte, NC. Jabian became aware of a need at GSHNC, and offered to commit resources through Apparo‘s Skilled Volunteer Engagement program. Apparo is a non-profit that connects local, corporate technology organizations to non-profits, delivering solutions that multiply non-profit effectiveness for a better Charlotte.
Funderburg led the project that spanned over 85 project hours to develop a Business Process Landscape that was then used to highlight process areas where the technology was inadequate to meet the needs of the Council. “What we do for our clients every single day, we were able to do for GSHNC as well and it feels pretty good,” he says.
From Angela Wood, GSHNC CEO’s, perspective, she says she’s thankful to Jabian and Apparo for helping the Council. “They were instrumental in defining the case, giving me the resources to support it, and providing me with the subject matter expertise.”
