FreeBalance Steps up for Government of Canada Public Service Renewal
FreeBalance translates groundbreaking “Scheming Virtuously” handbook to French and seeks to raise money for the Snowsuit Fund
Ottawa, Canada (September 18, 2012) – FreeBalance, a leading vendor of Government Resource Planning (GRP) software to the Government of Canada, is pleased to announce the translation to French of Scheming Virtuously, A Handbook for Public Servants written by Nicholas Charney and Mike Mangulabnan. Mr. Charney is a Canadian public servant and well-known blogger who was attempting to crowdfund the translation of his work. FreeBalance stepped up to complete the translation. The French version will be available shortly via the www.cpsrenewal.ca and www.freebalance.com web sites.
Any funds collected by the crowd funding initiative will be provided to the Snowsuit Fund, as long as the threshold of $4,000 is reached. There are 12 days left in the campaign. “FreeBalance is a social enterprise bringing good governance around the world,” said Manuel Pietra, President and CEO. “Our social responsibility program focuses on children and education. This is a good opportunity for FreeBalance to give back in our home country. “FreeBalance has started an internal campaign for fundraising within the company and will be asking Government of Canada customers to contribute to the campaign.
Scheming Virtuously is a handbook focused on public service renewal through fostering a culture of stewardship and innovation. The English version of Scheming Virtuously is available to public servants for read and edit on GCPEDIA.
