The holidays are a wonderful time of year but some families aren't as fortunate as others. Our Compliance Analyst, Shalika Rupasinghe, joined others from the Sri Lanka Association of New York to Christmas Carol in order to raise money for needy children. We are so proud of all the good our team does to not only support local families in NY/NJ but also around the world!
The ALS Group's final giving initiative for this year has come to a beautiful end! Our hearts are full from the generosity of our team who donated holiday gifts to three local families participating with an organization called Bridges of Hope. Together, the ALS family, fulfilled their wish lists!
Check out the pictures below, which were taken by Jessica Aviles, VP of Talent Management, as she went to personally give the families the gifts we purchased. Not only did she meet the families, but she also saw the relieved expression on the faces of the parents who now can give their children a holiday to remember!
Year after year, our team is encouraged to reach out to their communities and support causes that are important to them. We are proud of our team members for embracing our giving goals every year!
Have a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
The ALS Group is so excited to announce that our VP of Talent Management, Jessica Aviles, has spoken at the Assessing & Developing High Potentials Virtual Summit at 1:45pm EST on September 16, 2020!
Jessica's presentation was a session on Career Development; "An Inside Look at How an Intern Program can Help to 'Home Grow' Talent." Jessica has been nurturing The ALS Group's Internship Program for approximately 3 years now, and she thrives on working to "home grow" talent for our Client Service Team.
There is no better way to educate and transition students into entry level positions other than getting them involved in all aspects on how to help run a Client account!
To learn more about this event, and Jessica's presentation, please read our blog The ALS Group's Secrets of "Home-Growing Talent".

This holiday season, the ALS Team happily collected gift donations for two charities!
The Giving Tree is an organization that collects gifts for children and adults who are in need. Each team member selected one or more people to purchase a gift for, which included, toys, sports equipment, pajamas, and sweaters. The gifts were brought to Holy Rosary Church in Staten Island, NY.
Feel Better Bears is an organization that accepts donations of teddy bears for the New Jersey State Policeman's Benevolent Association with the purpose of helping police officers connect with children during an emergency. Bears will be handed out throughout the year to help comfort children at the scene of a call.
The ALS Group participates in several charitable events throughout the year and is committed to giving back to the community. We are so proud and honored to have generous team members who support our giving goals so graciously!
Have a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
