Co-chairs Ann Hook and Billy Murdock with Redmond Regional’s Giving Heart Campaign.

Redmond Regional Medical Center employees gave back to the community by participating in the hospital’s annual month-long campaign of charitable giving, the Giving Heart Campaign. Throughout the month of October, employees led an organized campaign of financial giving to non-profit organizations of their choosing. Employees were able to make a one-time donation or set up an automatic withdrawal from their paycheck.  Through the leadership of this year’s campaign co-chairs, Ann Hook and Billy Murdock, more than 560 employees participated in the campaign. Redmond’s parent company, Hospital Corporation of America, once again contributed.  For every eligible employee donation between $250 and $500, HCA matched the donation to the employee’s chosen charity.  Funds from this matching program, combined with the charitable donations of the employees, helped Redmond employees raise a total of over $194,000.  Through the Giving Heart Campaign, employees donated money to more than 75 different non-profit organizations, both local and national.  Employees were able to choose the specific non-profit organizations they wanted to support.  A few of the many local and national non-profit organizations chosen by employees include United Way, Open Door Home, Summit Quest, the Sweet Cocoon, Wounded Warriors, Doctors Without Borders, and the HOPE Fund.  “There has always been a culture of giving at Redmond,” said Chief Executive Officer John Quinlivan. “It is especially important to us to give back to the communities we serve.  Whether we are helping our friends and neighbors through a time of need or helping a family we’ve never met, I am inspired by the generosity of our employees.” For more:  www.RedmondRegional.com.

Shaw Industries Group recently joined the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success program where Shaw will offer job interviews to military service members seeking business careers.
The program provides youth in the Reserve Officer Training Corps an opportunity to serve their country while they prepare for their future. For soldiers transitioning back into civilian life and
Army reservists, the program aligns the service member’s military occupational specialties with the needs of two employer partners of the soldier’s choice, guaranteeing an interview for an available job,
which may lead to employment. Through this partnership, Shaw joins more than 782 employers of choice and will offer interviews to service members, with the goal of identifying and recruiting candidates whose skills and leadership traits align with the needs of the organization. “Shaw has long been a proud supporter of veterans, and we are grateful for their service and sacrifice to our nation,” said Mike Fromm, Shaw Industries’ chief human resources officer. “We believe our people are our competitive advantage, and we are excited to offer the opportunity for veterans to join
Shaw.” For more: About the Army PaYs program,  www.armypays.com. Shaw openings: www.shawinc.jobs.
