Capitol Broadcasting Company Honored as MS Employer of the Year
CBC VP of Community Relations, Paul Pope, accepts the award from Bob Bryant and Kay Gooch for the Eastern NC Chapter of the National MS Society.
Capitol Broadcasting Company was honored as the 2004 MS Employer of the Year by the Eastern NC Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This award is given out annually to employers for their significant contribution in the areas of hiring and retention of employees with multiple sclerosis.
Corporate HRIS Administrator, Sandy Ceppos, nominated CBC this year. Ceppos was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1987, four years before being hired by CBC. In his nomination, Sandy emphasized CBC’s extra efforts in accommodating his schedule, offering support, encouraging an active lifestyle and supporting MS fund raising events.
“Through the hiring process and during my employment, I have been treated with complete dignity and respect. Capitol Broadcasting Company has consistently looked beyond my limitations and focused on my talents and abilities,” wrote Ceppos. “From the very beginning of my employment, CBC has accommodated my condition by allowing me to work an alternative work schedule, they pay one half of my annual health club membership through their Be Active program and have been big supporters of the MS Society.”
Former winners of this award include, Fonville Morrissey Realtors, NC Employment Security Commission and the News and Observer.
