Applause Honored with United Way Good Neighbor Award

Crowdtesting leader recognized for charitable activities in its community

Boston, Massachusetts - April 05, 2018

Applause, the global leader in digital experience quality, announced today it received the United Way Tri-County Good Neighbor Award as recognition for its service to the 34 communities in Worcester, Middlesex, and Norfolk counties. The award comes as a result of Applause’s active participation in United Way charity initiatives throughout 2017.

“We are dedicated to our community,” said Bradley Batchelder, VP of People & Culture at Applause. “All team members get involved and this leads to a more unified company. Whether it’s donating time, money, or resources, members of Applause Nation are always willing to lend a helping hand and reach out to make somebody’s life better - in whatever way possible. This award is really a testament to the work of our employees and how much they care about their community.”

Applause participates in a number of charitable activities. Throughout the year, team members spend a few hours during the week serving food at the Pearl Street Café. The company also buys backpacks and fills them with school supplies every year as part of United Way’s annual backpack drive for underprivileged students in the area. During the holiday season, Applause team members continue their giving ways with the Thanksgiving food drive and the Hope for the Holidays gift drive in partnership with United Way Tri-County.

To congratulate and thank the winners of the Good Neighbor Award, United Way of Tri-County hosted an event on April 5th, bringing all the winners together in one group.

“This event is all about them, our heroes,” said Paul Mina, United Way of Tri-County President and CEO. “We are truly honored to have the best supporters and volunteers, who stand with us and heroically take the action necessary to lift up our local communities and improve the quality of life for everyone.”
