Roseville, Calif., Jan. 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the second year in a row, PRIDE Industries has been named a Top Impact Company by Real Leaders®, a Global Media and Certified B Corp dedicated to inspiring the future of business. Real Leaders® awards the Top Impact Company honor to privately owned companies based on their leadership performance within six categories of I.M.P.A.C.T (Intention, Model, People, Accountability, Collaboration and Transformation).

Its impact also reaches military veterans and former foster youth, through its Veterans Program and Youth Employment Services (YES!) program, respectively.

"We are thrilled to be recognized, for a second consecutive year, as a Top Impact Company by Real Leaders®,” said Jeff Dern, President and CEO at PRIDE Industries. “Our long-term focus on creating employment for people with disabilities has been a key factor in achieving this award. Organizations that employ people with disabilities have stronger cultures, employee retention, and bottom lines. Together, in partnership with our customers, our success proves the value of an inclusive workforce."
