CBC Receives Platinum Award
Last Thursday, September 15, Capitol Broadcasting Company received a Platinum Rule Award from the Triangle Business Journal (TBJ) at an event at the N. C. Museum of History in downtown Raleigh. CBC won the award for Work Environment in the large company division.
WNCN-17 prepared the presentation videos for the awards event. WRAL-TV Chief Engineer Craig Turner, News Director Andrea Parquet-Taylor, and CBC Human Resources Director Jan Sharp were featured in interviews praising CBC’s worker-friendly setting. CBC also made an impression on the judges with our annual giveaways of turkeys at Thanksgiving, lilies at Easter, poinsettias at Christmas and carnations for Mother’s Day. The TBJ was impressed that our “company’s philosophy is that encouraging community-based activities improves the quality of life for everyone involved.”
The awards were created to honor companies who are truly distinctive in the their way of dealing with the changing workplace and are based on the Platinum Rule: “do unto others as they would like done unto them.” A panel of community leaders including BTI’s Steve Toler, Wachovia’s Jane Mitchell, and NCEITA’s Joe Meirs judged the nominations and selected the 2000 recipients.
