ATLANTA, Dec. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In lieu of sending out paper holiday cards to clients and employees, PRGX Global Inc. (Nasdaq:PRGX), the world's leading recovery audit provider, will be donating to UNICEF this year. This donation concludes a year filled with numerous charitable contributions by the company and the continuation of a clear focus on the company's social responsibility platform.

"As a true global player in the economy, it is our responsibility to also contribute back to the communities in which we operate," said Romil Bahl, President and CEO of PRGX. "We actively encourage each of our 28 offices across the world to think creatively about ways that they can give back and make a difference," continued Bahl.

In the U.S., our team members worked side-by-side with some of our largest clients to build homes in New Orleans for Habitat for Humanity. Our Bentonville, Arkansas-based team hosted a blood-drive for the American Red Cross and throughout the year collected toys, clothes and raised over $1,200 for the Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter. Lastly, in December our corporate office collected canned foods and dry goods for the Atlanta food bank.

In Canada, our offices in Mississauga and in Cambridge sponsored a food drive in October and collected toys in December benefiting the local police and fire departments.

In Latin America, our Sao Paulo office donated over 50 desktops, laptops and monitors to the Centro Espirita Nosso Lar Casas Andre Luiz, a Brazilian charity benefiting the poor as well as orphans.

In honor of Diwali, our office in Pune, India, collected clothing, books and stationary for Sharanam Foundation, a Mumbai-based charity that focuses on educating orphaned children.

Finally, in Europe, our UK offices continued for the sixth year to support the Retail Trust, a charity based in North London that supports those working in the UK retail industry. The charity runs a helpline and several retirement estates in England and Scotland, as well as giving educational bursaries and hardship grants.

"Changes occur daily in our society, environment, and economy each impacting one another. Through PRGX's corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, the company and its employees have the opportunity and desire to bring positive change across these interconnected parts of our lives," added Bahl. "We know our dedication and commitment to CSR will make us a stronger company."
