PENTA Joins United Nations Global Compact

Westborough, MA. _ PENTA Communications, Inc., a full service integrated marketing firm headquartered in Westborough, Massachusetts announced today that it has been named as a partner in the United Nations (UN) Global Compact. PENTA is now one of only 8,000 organizations worldwide from 135 countries participating in this important initiative fostering a higher level of universal business integrity and corporate responsibility.

This worldwide corporate initiative will set in motion exciting developments at PENTA to insure that the company’s strategy, culture, and day-to-day business operations adhere to the United Nations’ Ten Principles.

“We strive for excellence in everything we do, every single day at the Company. Every member of our team has a deep commitment to our work, to the success of our clients, and to the community. Bringing everything we do to an even higher standard of excellence is so important, and is an exciting undertaking,” said CEO, Deborah Penta. “As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we’re all so pleased to bring our efforts for betterment of our industry, our community, and global sustainability to a new level.”

Adhering to, advocating for, and reporting on the Ten Principles that represent four primary categories: Human Rights, Labor, Environment, and Anti-Corruption, businesses accepted into the global partnership share the same core values centered around best operational practices, highest integrity, continuous improvement, and the dedication and initiative to take an active role in advocating for a stronger global future.

Creating a business with global potential is not always easy, but there are a few steps that companies can take to improve their chances of going global. For example, it is no secret that digital products like software are much easier to bring to a global audience than physical products.

Provided that a company has a reliable e-commerce store set up by a leading digital e-commerce platform provider and is ready to process global payments, there is very little to stop a company from taking its software around the world.

PENTA Communications, Inc. has been a steadfast community-oriented company since its inception and over the years, numerous non-profit organizations have benefited from its commitment. In 2012 alone, PENTA provided nearly a half million dollars in pro-bono services and donations to help strengthen non-profits within our region. It offers annual leadership scholarships, mentoring opportunities, and it engages in ongoing efforts to create global alliances by hosting foreign business delegations for shared learning experiences and dialogue.
