McLEAN, VIRGINIA (June 8, 2006) – Kathy Albarado, President of Helios HR based in Reston, VA, was granted the 2006 HR Leadership Award for Community Service/Corporate Social Responsibility. In addition to participating in community support for local charities such as The March of Dimes, Reston Interfaith, Northern Virginia Family Services, and The House of Ruth, Ms. Albarado has been active in a leadership capacity in a number of professional associations to include Women in Technology, the Northern Virginia Employer Advisory Committee and the Society for Human Resource Management.

Our programs meet the needs of 13,000 people each year, and we could not perform this work without the support of over 1,000 volunteers, like Kathy Albarado and her wonderful team at Helios HR.”
