CSR Awards: Employee Relations

Winner: Fahlgren Mortine - Mid-Ohio Foodbank Operation Feed Week

Employee Relations_Fahlgren MortineAs a leading marketing communications agency headquartered in central Ohio, Fahlgren Mortine has made fighting hunger a core focus of the organization’s philanthropic and corporate responsibility program.

Last year, Fahlgren Mortine executed a weeklong campaign to engage associates in fighting hunger through its 2013 Operation Feed Week. In order to engage all Fahlgren Mortine associates, this internal campaign addressed the need for hunger assistance in their communities through awareness and education, and provided fun, creative activities for associates in various offices to engage with the cause.

In 2012, Fahlgren Mortine exceeded its goal of 3,000 meals, which equaled $10 or 30 meals per associate. For 2013, Fahlgren Mortine raised its goal to $15 or 45 meals per person, which, based on the 100 employees in its Columbus office, equaled a goal of 4,500 meals for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Fahlgren Mortine agreed to match all associate-raised funds to double the impact of its 2013 Operation Feed campaign on those in need; when all was said and done, the company easily eclipsed its goal, raising a total of 8,248 meals for Mid-Ohio Foodbank, including the agency’s match.
