PointOne Continues Commitment to Ugandan School

Ten fully-loaded, Apple iPads will arrive this week to the Jubilee Academy in Uganda, courtesy of  PointOne Recruiting Solutions, an affiliate of MRINetwork, one of the world's largest executive search and recruitment organizations. Scott Petersen, president of PointOne, will hand-deliver the tablets with wife Shawn to the school which is located about an hour from the city of Mbale. Through its relationship with a local non-profit group, Water Health & Education Development East Africa (WHEDEA), PointOne pays 100 percent of the school's operating budget, supporting 500 children in grades kindergarten through eight. The iPads will help connect the children with the global community and enhance their reading and writing skills.

The trip to Uganda is just one example of PointOne's culture policy of changing lives, a mission that was developed by the company's team of recruiters. "We know that we change the lives of our candidates every day with new career opportunities," says Petersen, "however it's also important to us to impact people outside of our business through life-changing experiences."

Through its relationship with WHEDEA, PointOne is deeply invested in changing the lives of the children at the school and in their village. Petersen serves on the board of directors, providing strategic business counsel to the organization about how to further its mission and accomplish its annual goals.
