Because CompManagement Inc., a division of Sedgwick, operates in the occupational health sector, it concentrates its corporate giving and volunteer services in the areas of health and human services. CompManagement is strongly committed to the growth of business and industry in Ohio, as well as to community service.

CompManagement provides support to civic organizations, such as EPIC and several chambers of commerce across the state of Ohio. In 2010 and 2011, CompManagement contributed more than $165,000 in membership dues, event outings and financial gifts supporting chambers of commerce and civic associations.

CompManagement’s extensive community involvement demonstrates the spirit of giving that permeates the organization’s corporate culture. Examples of corporate financial contributions over the past three years include a 2011 Sedgwick holiday card project to raise awareness of and to raise funds for injured U.S. military personnel and the donation of a $25,000 Ohio-manufactured vehicle to Ohio State University’s James Cancer Hospital.

CompManagement has a 15-member colleague activity committee that promotes colleague interaction through office activities. The committee is self-funded; all money raised is given back to the colleagues as a prize or incentive for participation unless otherwise specified.

The colleague activity committee meets monthly to manage the company’s community service efforts, including fundraising events, blood drives, volunteer opportunities and other service activities. The group works closely with the company’s human resources department to advertise and promote volunteer activities among the company’s employees to ensure that all of CompManagement’s team members have an opportunity to be involved in a meaningful way.
