2013 Pillar Awards - Cincinnati

Medical Mutual, along with our co-founding Pillar Award partner SBN, proudly presents the annual Pillar Awards.

In this issue, we honor 22 finalists representing a diverse group of companies and organizations of varying sizes. While they may be different in many ways, one thing that they all have in common is their commitment to strengthening the bond between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds.

This is an important conversation, and at this year’s event, we intend to explore it.

It occurred to us many years ago that few things are more meaningful and important than investing time and resources in supporting our community, and we felt the need to honor companies and their employees who have gone above and beyond the call. While support and direction come from management, companies are only as great as their employees.

For that reason, we are quite proud to present the Medical Mutual SHARE Award. This unique award was founded to recognize companies whose employees best exemplify the ideals of Medical Mutual’s own employee SHARE Committee. SHARE stands for serve, help, aid, reach and educate, and it is the heart and soul of Medical Mutual’s charitable giving effort.

The SHARE Committee, made up of Medical Mutual employee volunteers, helps coordinate more than two dozen community events involving nearly half of the company’s 2,500 employees.

On behalf of Medical Mutual and SBN, we hope you enjoy reading about these great companies and we offer congratulations to all of our Pillar Award recipients.

Medical Mutual, along with our co-founding Pillar Award partner SBN, proudly presents the 15th annual Pillar Awards.

In this issue, we honor 31 finalists representing a diverse group of companies and organizations of varying sizes. While they may be different in many ways, one thing that they all have in common is their commitment to strengthening the bond between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds.

There is also a new Pillar Award category for 2012. We will present our first Youth Philanthropy awards, which demonstrate how philanthropy reaches well beyond the traditional corporate sector.

The SHARE Committee, made up of Medical Mutual employee volunteers, helps coordinate more than two-dozen community events involving nearly half of the company’s 2,500 employees.

On behalf of Medical Mutual and SBN, we hope you enjoy reading about these great companies and we offer congratulations to all of our Pillar Award recipients.

Few things are more meaningful and important than investing time and resources in supporting our community, and in this issue, we honor companies and their employees who have gone above and beyond the call.

All too often these companies and their workers are our region’s unsung heroes. Several years ago, we decided to do something about that.

In 1998, Medical Mutual and Smart Business Network created The Pillar Award for Community Service in Northeast Ohio to recognize companies, business leaders and nonprofit executives for their commitment to strengthening the bond between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds. In 2011, we expanded this program to the greater Cincinnati region.

While support and direction come from management, companies are only as great as their employees.

In 2002, the Pillar SHARE Award was founded to recognize companies whose employees best exemplify the ideals of Medical Mutual’s own employee SHARE Committee.

SHARE stands for serve, help, aid, reach and educate and is the heart and soul of Medical Mutual’s charitable giving effort. Each year, this committee, made up of Medical Mutual employee volunteers, helps coordinate more than two-dozen community events across the state involving nearly half of the company’s 2,500 employees.

On behalf of Medical Mutual and our Pillar Award co-founding partner, SBN, we are proud to present these annual awards for community service for the greater Cincinnati region.

Congratulations.

A continuing community commitment

Welcome to the 2009 Pillar Awards.

On behalf of everyone at Medical Mutual of Ohio and our Pillar Award co-founding partner, Smart Business Network, we are proud to present these annual awards for Community Service for the 12th consecutive year.

I personally want to congratulate this year’s recipients for their understanding of “commitment to community.” That is what the Pillar Award is all about — leading by example and helping to improve the quality of life for Northeast Ohioans.

As we celebrate our 75th anniversary at Medical Mutual this year, our company has long understood the commitment to improve Cleveland and the communities we serve. We strive to live up to that responsibility in everything we do.

You will notice that one of the annual Pillar Awards is a special award given to the company whose employees best exemplify the values of Medical Mutual’s volunteer employee S.H.A.R.E. committee.

S.H.A.R.E., 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 2,500 employees.

“Improving the communities we serve” is a common theme for all of the Pillar Award recipients over the past 12 years, and once again, Medical Mutual of Ohio is honored to be in such outstanding company.

Rick Chiricosta is president and CEO of Medical Mutual of Ohio.
