GAITHERSBURG, MD — February 19, 2013 — GXS, a leading provider of B2B integration services, today announced that it has named Olga Yin its 2012 GXS Humanitarian and Todd Hill Award winner. The award honors the memory of Todd Hill, a QRS (Inovis) employee who lost his life during the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Each year since the GXS and Inovis merger, GXS has recognised the outstanding community service efforts of one of its employees with a cash award and a matching contribution to the non-profit charity of the award winner’s choice.
“GXS employees make a difference and impact the communities in which we live and work every day. With the GXS Humanitarian and Todd Hill Award we are able to show our appreciation to those employees who uphold a tradition that is very important to us at GXS,” said George Hall, senior vice president of human resources at GXS. “Yin’s work has touched the lives of so many in the community and serves as an inspiration to all and a demonstration of the impact an individual can have on a community.”
An active member of the Hong Kong Red Cross, Yin has worked with the “Basic Psychological Support Service Team” since 2010. The group provides community services to people in need in Hong Kong and China including visually impaired elderly, children of new immigrants, single elderly persons, disabled children, orphans, children of single parent, mental patients and the family members of prisoners. In 2012, Yin volunteered on more than 70 occasions, totaling 300 hours with various non-profit organisations in the region. In addition to her volunteer work, Yin has also been an active blood donor and has given blood more than 30 times.
Open to all global employees of GXS, the GXS Humanitarian and Todd Hill Award recognises an employee for outstanding work supporting non-profit charitable programmes. All community service activities are taken into consideration.
