At the United Way of 1000 Lakes Annual Campaign Celebration and Best of Awards, MDI was recognized for several outstanding efforts.
Diane Meyer, Employment Support Supervisor based in Cohasset, was recognized as the Best Coordinator of the Year for the work she did in bringing MDI's campaign to life. In partnership with the United Way team, she championed United Way in the MDI workplace by inspiring co-workers to get involved and make a difference in their community. Since Diane Meyer took on the role of Employee Campaign Coordinator, MDI's employee pledges have steadily increased and our participation levels have gone through the roof! From a pie in the face to tiaras, her success can be attributed to designing campaigns that everyone can take part in and have fun! This year's campaign centered on themed dress days, raffle drawings, and a friendly competition among department managers.
Rod Wood, VP of Operations accepted the reward on MDI's behalf as having the Best Employee Engagement Award which recognizes outstanding achievement in employee education, engagement and involvement with United Way. Under the theme of "Together We Can Make A Change!" employees were encouraged and received special incentives for participating in the United Way campaign. "Take one week, pick a theme for each day of the week, give them a chance to win for participating, and throw in a ballerina tutu and tiara. When you're MDI, that's how you inspire employees during the United Way campaign." As a result, MDI celebrated its largest campaign total ever!
