For almost twenty years, PowerNet Global (News - Alert), a provider of various communication solutions including voice, data, SIP, and managed services for businesses and residents all over the country, was named as a finalist for Dayton Business Journal’s 2011 Business of the Year “Community Supporter of the Year” Award.
The Dayton Business Journal 2011 Business of the Year Award program was designed to honor Dayton-area companies who have risen above competitors. Within the program are seven distinct categories including: Community Supporter of the Year, Executive of the Year, Manufacturing Business of the Year, Minority-Owned Business of the Year, Not-for-Profit Organization of the Year, Rookie Business of the Year and Service Business of the Year, according to a press release.
PNG received the award of the Community Supporter of the Year due to the large amount of time the company spends giving back to the community. PowerNet Global has always been heavily focused upon the community and even donates a percentage of its profits to local organizations that help those in need. Bernie Stevens, president & CEO of PowerNet Global also has developed a “Charitable Paid (News - Alert) Time Off” Program to allows employees to reap benefits, while simultaneously working to make the community a better place overall.
“PowerNet Global was built on a solid foundation of core values that include giving back to our community and we are honored to be a finalist for the Community Supporter of the Year Award. None of this would be possible without the dedicated, caring, and reliable staff that comprises PowerNet Global,” Bernie Stevens, CEO of PowerNet Global said in a statement.
