Chicago, IL (October 5, 2015) – Celergo, a leading international payroll services management company announced today they were a sponsor at the 2015 Passport to Possibilities Awards & Gala at Galleria Marchetti, September 17, 2015, in Chicago.
Upwardly Global helps highly educated but underemployed new Americans rebuild their lives and careers in the United States, simultaneously filling critical talent needs in finance, engineering, IT, healthcare, and beyond. In addition, their programs engage the employees of Fortune 500 companies as mentors and volunteers through formal employer partnerships, building the cross-cultural awareness and skills of our workforce, and engendering a sense of pride in corporate investments that reflect the value of immigrant integration.
Since 2012, the Celergo/Upwardly Global Partnership has delivered exceptional value both to Celergo and to the highly educated but under-employed immigrants served through Upwardly Global’s program. “Our requirements are hard to find, and when we find them, it really becomes a competitive advantage for us. I’m proud to say that Celergo has hired seven UpGlo job seekers into key positions,” states Honomichl.
“Celergo is proud to partner and support the Upwardly Global organization. The Gala each year is a celebration of the partnership between employers working with UpGlo to ensure that immigrants who come to this country have an opportunity to live out their dreams and reach their ultimate potential. What a wonderful event this year to see such a representation of so many countries and cultures coming together for a valued purpose and it was so aligned with this year’s theme of Passport to Opportunity. The entertainment was amazing and the band was a cross-cultural experience for all who attended. I was proud to represent Celergo and I look forward to Upwardly Global’s future success!” Terry Adams, Director of Human Resources and Compliance for Celergo.
