Teradata has received the Business Leader of the Year award from the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce for the company’s corporate social responsibility programs in San Diego’s North County.
In 2012, Teradata’s employees volunteered for more than 2,400 hours and around $8,700 in donations, the company said Wednesday.
“As one of the major employers in San Diego, Teradata is proud to be a part of the community and receive this award for corporate giving, social responsibility and employee volunteers,” said Scott Gnau, Teradata Labs president.
Last year, Teradata launched projects including several science, technology, engineering and math programs, San Dieguito River Park restoration, San Diego Blood Bank drives and mentoring programs at the Rancho Bernardo High School and Del Norte HIgh School.
Teradata was chosen by a panel that includes representatives from the Pomerado News, San Diego Business Journal and The Daily Transcript.
