They are the Responsibility Leaders.
For our Responsibility Leader awards, we looked for innovators who were willing to do what is right over what is easy in order to overcome any obstacles to successfully implement their solutions.
Responsibility Leaders were required to go above and beyond the call of duty by:
--Developing a unique and practical risk solution.
--Benefiting not only their employer or industry but also employees, community and family.
--Doing the right thing over the easy thing to overcome obstacles.
THE SEVEN WINNERS
Millions of people eat or work at the brand-name casual dining spots owned by Darden Restaurants, like Olive Garden and Red Lobster. Tom Cipollone has made all of their experiences safer, thanks to years spent aligning his corporation's ethos with his brand of nitty-gritty risk management.
Or how about our Summitteer? Jennifer Christian launched her "60 Summits Project" to tackle the return-to-work and stay-at-work process for all of us--how to get workers back on the job after an injury.
One return-to-work model that could benefit our community could be the one designed by Susan Shemanski of Spherion Corp.
Allen Bova of Cornell earns summa cum laude honors for university risk managers, setting an example by honoring campus traditions without putting up with the risks of blurry-eyed students.
After all, risk managers are members of their community too, with children in schools and Little Leagues. Dan Thomas gets this. While this public risk manager makes sure the 37,000 students in his Beaverton, Ore., school district make to and from school safe every day, he has also taken it upon himself to be a principal driver of emergency planning in his hometown.
Or read how Bruce Moeller led DriveCam to monitor fleet drivers and deliver a service that will make drivers more careful and conscientious.
And praise for Janette Ament-Pierce. This hotel VIP at Noble House is proof that dynamic, enterprisewide risk management is not just for the Fortune 500, and that risk managers can have a life outside the office.
