Capitol Broadcasting Company has once again been honored for our wellness program.   Capital Associated Industries (CAI) presented its Ovation Award for HR Excellence to CBC at its annual HR Management Conference on Tuesday, February 5, 2008.

CBC Vice President of Human Resources Jan Sharp accepted the award at the event at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh.  She then made a presentation during one of the breakout sessions, sharing the facets of CBC’s wellness program.  CBC HR Manager Angie Emerline & HR Benefits Administrator Van Williams also contributed during the presentation to “share the secrets behind the success of [CBC’s] innovative people practices.”

CBC’s nomination included information about Be Active CBC, our annual Health Fairs, and our CPR & First Responder training courses. 

CBC launched a Be Active program in the spring of 2002 and adds new facets to this wellness effort on an ongoing basis, including on-site Weight Watchers sessions and walking competitions.  CBC has held health fairs for many years but recently implemented incentives to get all employees & their spouses to participate.  We hope in the long term to lower insurance costs.  CBC encourages all employees to earn their CPR certification & provide on-site training.  CBC also has a First Responder program comprised of trained employees who are the front line in case of a medical emergency in the workplace.  All divisions have at least one AED as part of this program.

CBC won the Ovation Award for HR Excellence in the Mid-Size Employer category.  Quintiles Transnational won in the Large Employer category, and Bank of Oak Ridge won the Small Employer award.

The Ovation Award “honors exceptional workplaces that have implemented innovative people practices that positively impact business results.” CAI and Business Leader presented the 2008 Ovation Awards.

CAI helps “employers create exceptional workplaces through HR & management advice, training, news, survey data, public policy advocacy and consulting services.”
