HMH re-launched its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program in 2010 to maximize our social impact as a global leader in lifelong learning. In addition to improving student and teacher outcomes with best-in-class education solutions, we recognize the importance of supporting our employees and local communities, prioritizing sustainable business processes, and addressing the social challenges that face our customers around the world. To help drive the success of these activities, we align our CSR work to three guiding pillars—Giving Voice to a variety of education stakeholders, Promoting Access to Ideas and nourishing curiosity, and Removing Barriers to learning.
In 2012, HMH received VolunteerMatch's Breakthrough Performance Award and was also named one of Boston's Top Charitable Contributors by the Boston Business Journal. In 2013, we received a PR News CSR Awards honorable mention for our Community Investment Council Initiative and were also inducted into Junior Achievement of Northern New England’s Boston Business Hall of Fame.
