In order to spread awareness about the importance of CSR activities, the Bank of Leumi organises award ceremonies to honour various leaders who made an impact in the society.

Dailycsr.com – 31 July 2015 – Business Wire reports about the announcement made by Leumi on 27th July 2015, wherein it was declared that the company would be “sponsoring” a CSR or corporate social responsibility event in order to honour the leading community and business figures. The selection of the honourable persons will be made by looking at their “significant contributions” made to the community of New York. The event will be focusing on the sectors of telecommunications, new media and technology.
It has been reported that the ceremony, wherein the inspiring leaders will be honoured, is to be hosted by “City & State Reports”. The main reason behind this event is to raise awareness “about the importance of CSR”, whereby the company will give recognition to programmes that were successfully able to bring in a “positive impact” on the community. The C.E.O of Leumi, Avner Mendelson, who also holds the post of the company’s president informed:
”Giving back to the community is a top priority for us. We are delighted to be involved in honoring business and community leaders who place the same level of importance on giving back to the community as we do. I congratulate all of the award winners for their outstanding CSR efforts and the positive impacts they are having on the community.”
Leumi has planned seven “CSR awards ceremonies” and this one forms part of that very series of events. All of the seven occasions will be “hosted by City & State Reports”, these programmes are to take place throughout the year of 2015. These will also be a way to showcase the “best examples of CSR” that take place within the region of New York. In fact, the C.E.O cum the president of New York’s “City & State”, Tom Allon, who also co-founded the “City & State Reports” attach a great importance to CSR activities, whereby he said:
“CSR is one of the most important trends in business today.
