On behalf of everyone at Medical Mutual of Ohio and our Pillar Award co-founding partner, Smart Business, we present these annual awards for community service for the sixth consecutive year.
I personally want to congratulate this year’s recipients for their understanding of “commitment to community.” That is what the Pillar Awards are all about — leading by example and helping to improve the quality of life for Central Ohioans.
As we at Medical Mutual celebrate our 80th anniversary, our company has long understood the commitment to improve Columbus and the communities we serve. We strive to live up to that responsibility in everything we do.
You will notice that one of the Pillar Awards is a special honor given to a company whose employees best exemplify the values of Medical Mutual’s volunteer employee SHARE Committee.
SHARE, which stands for serve, help, aid, reach and educate, is the heart and soul of Medical Mutual’s charitable giving effort. Each year, this committee helps coordinate more than two-dozen community events involving nearly half of the company’s 2,300 employees.
“Improving the communities we serve,” is a common theme for all of the Pillar Award recipients over the past six years and, once again, Medical Mutual of Ohio is honored to be in such outstanding company.
