Why Nominated:  Edwards Lifesciences aspires to have 100 percent of its employees participate in at least one philanthropic activity per year. To help accomplish this, Edwards launched its Strengthen Our Community (SOC) employee volunteer program to create an avenue for employees to directly contribute to the betterment of the community while reinforcing Edwards’ culture of helping people. The SOC Steering Committee leads Edwards’ volunteer initiatives and engages employees in fun, inspiring and meaningful community projects. During the past year this team of dedicated volunteers helped us achieve record breaking numbers with our United Way Giving Campaign, the American Heart Association OC Heart Walk and a variety of community volunteer projects leading to 84% participation in at least one philanthropic activity per employee. We couldn’t achieve this level of engagement without this dedicated team of volunteer leaders . . . thank you all for your time and dedication to making the communities in which we live and work a better place.

Please write a note of congratulations below!
