ConocoPhillips spun off its downstream business, Phillips 66, lastMay, and has worked hard to refresh its brand as a stand-alone enterprise, says Vicki Lynn, Universums senior vice president of client talent strategy and employer branding.Phillips 66 is known because one of its core products is consumer facing (gas for our cars, for example) and they have focused their business on how their products improve our lives.Their business is largely focused on energy manufacturing and logistics operations, and they have focused on how to improve gas for cars, jet fuel, home heating products and plastics. They do this by supporting conservation programs, using energy materials efficiently, and demonstrating respect for our natural resources. Phillips 66 also demonstrates care for the environment and sustainability within the regions where they are located, she adds. Recently, they contributed $1 million to the Oklahoma Tornado Relief Efforts and matched employee relief fund donations, as well. Another company that business students associate with great CSR practices: T-Mobile. The Bellevue, Wash.-based telecommunications giant earned the No. 2 spot thanks to its widely known phone recycling program that reduces the environmental and health impacts from improper recycling and enables wider access to cell phones among individuals with limited means, Lynn says. City Year, a non-profit organization that is committed to increasing high school graduation rates in America, tied T-Mobile for the No. 2 spot.

Yahoo to give its corporate logo a month-long makeover
(Credit: Logo) Yahoo’s logo is getting a new look next month, but fear not — the iconic exclamation point is not at risk of extinction! The Web company on Tuesday debuted the first in a series of new logos it plans to unveil in the next couple of weeks. The change was inspired by “a renewed sense of purpose and progress at Yahoo” since Marissa Mayer took over as chief executive officer a year ago, Kathy Savitt, Yahoo’s chief marketing officer, wrote Tuesday evening in a Tumblr blog post . “The new logo will be a modern redesign that’s more reflective of our reimagined design and new experiences,” Savitt wrote, explaining that a new variation of the logo will be presented each day during the next 30 days. “It’s our way of having some fun while honoring the legacy of our present logo.” Related stories Marissa Mayer taps Google’s Zagat chief to lead Flickr The campaign will culminate http://www.forbes.com/sites/janetnovack/2013/08/09/how-secs-new-robocop-profiles-companies-for-accounting-fraud/ with the unveiling of a new official logo on September 5, Savitt wrote.
