In recognition of leaders who have found the perfect intersection of social good and corporate success, Dan Erling, Accountants One CEO and President, was honored as a Leader in Corporate Citizenship by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Erling is being recognized in the Executive Champion Small Company category for the 2021 virtual event that took place earlier today.
This award honors individuals who have demonstrated a strong commitment to corporate responsibility practices and are actively engaged in supporting and expanding those efforts. Rewarded individuals have successfully integrated relevant societal concerns into their core operating strategies and embraced them as positive for businesses, customers, employees, and their communities.
The Executive Champion – Small company category recognizes small company leaders who exemplify the ability to inspire and engage employees in social good by creating a company culture that embraces philanthropy, employee volunteerism, and personal commitment to giving back to the Atlanta community.
The global pandemic quickly and profoundly changed our daily lives; however, Dan refused to allow these unprecedented circumstances to interfere with his dedication and promise to continue to raise awareness for Junior Achievement of Georgia and most of all the students of our community.
The 2020 Virtual South’s Funniest Accountant raised $50,000 for Junior Achievement in a truly unique online setting. All of the proceeds raised in 2020 went directly to the students of the Atlanta community that Junior Achievement supports.
Erling is an active Junior Achievement Board member and creates a culture at Accountants One of corporate and social responsibility. Under Erling’s leadership, the team volunteerism with Junior Achievement of Georgia is integrated into the daily operations at Accountants One. Often, Erling and his team volunteer through donating time to work with students at BizTown and Finance Park, and also assist with an annual case study at Banneker High School.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for this award,” says Erling. “Never in a million years did I think the Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant would be where it is today. As a former math teacher, it is rewarding to see the work my company is doing positively impact students. We would not be here today without the incredible people on our team. Gratitude!”
Erling was recently featured in an article from the Atlanta Business Chronicle where you can read more about his thoughts on corporate citizenship, leadership, and more.
