Supporting those in need
For the last fourteen years, the CompManagement Partner Companies have consistently and generously supported the Mid-Ohio Food Bank to help local residents struggling with hunger. The Food Bank’s needs continue to grow, and, as in the past, our colleagues stepped up to help their fellow Ohioans. For our 2013 Operation Feed campaign, we were pleased to be able to donate over $21,000. This equated to 63,326 meals and Operation Feed recognized our company with the Directors Choice award for exceptional campaign achievements.
In support of the American Heart Association's Heart Walk, our colleagues walked either one or three miles and with the assistance of other fundraising activities, donated $3,000 to the Heart Walk for 2013. Through the generosity of our colleagues’ donations and time, we have been recognized as a Gold Star company.
Volunteering our time
In 2013, CompManagement Partner Companies’ colleagues volunteered over 969 hours of their time to support charitable organizations throughout Ohio.
For eight years, our office in Dublin has regularly held on-site blood drives to help the Central Ohio Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. In 2013, they collected 65 units of blood – potentially saving the lives of 195 central Ohioans.
National efforts through our Sedgwick family and colleagues:
Helping kids dream big for the holidays
During the 2012 holiday season, Sedgwick enlisted clients, colleagues, partners and friends to help us dream big for kids whose parents have suffered a workplace injury. By tying our corporate holiday outreach to social media – pledging $5 for every “like” or “follow” – we worked to hit our goal of donating $50,000 to Kids’ Chance, a group dedicated to helping these kids achieve their dreams and reach their potential through educational opportunities.
Coming together after the storm
When Hurricane Sandy struck the eastern seaboard, it hit close to home, with many of our own directly impacted. Sedgwick called on our outstanding colleagues across the country to step up to the plate to help those in need. Not only did they offer a flood of PTO donations to support those dealing with recovery in the hardest-hit areas, but local offices met a corporate challenge by coming together to raise money for relief organizations like the American Red Cross. Sedgwick echoed our colleagues’ generosity by pledging a company match for all funds raised up to $25,000.
Other local efforts
Funded by the company, each office has a colleague activities committee charged with developing programs that engage colleagues, foster team building, and generate goodwill. The activities committee creates valuable leadership opportunities, brings our teams closer together and allows us to positively impact our communities – all while benefiting local charities. Our colleagues assist with numerous efforts throughout the year, such as:
- Charity Newsies
- Holiday wish drives
- Clothing drives
- School supply drives
- National and international disaster relief
- Military care packages
- Breast cancer research
- Wounded warrior program
- Child mentoring program
- Nonprofit home care services for the homebound
- Children’s hospitals
- Local food banks
- Supporting colleagues coping with difficult personal and financial circumstances
