At BITC’s annual general meeting on 6 December 2018, Medline was named as one of a few specially chosen companies to participate in BITC’s new Responsible Business Tracker, which was launched in 2018. The Tracker is a questionnaire-based tool designed to enable a business to measure its responsible business performance.
Known as the forerunners, Medline and 81 other companies will receive a detailed assessment of their individual submissions from BITC, as well as a separate report on insights and trends.
Participation in the Tracker capped off a successful year for the CSR department in terms of engaging with BITC. Medline was on the evaluation panel for BITC’s 2018 Responsible Business Awards, and received information and advice from BITC on topics such as the sustainable development goals, modern slavery and sustainability reporting.
Medline’s third annual Pink Glove Photo Competition, supporting breast cancer awareness and funding, just wrapped up last week. In this competition, we invite healthcare workers to take creative pictures of themselves wearing our pink gloves, which are posted on Facebook for voting. The ‘likes’ have been tallied, and, out of 50 beautiful submissions, we are pleased to announce this year’s three winners:
- 1st place: Italy, Asur 4 Senigallia
- 2nd place: France, Un esprit sein, dans un corps sain
- 3rd place: Spain, Diana Marcilla Hernández, en representación del Bloque Quirúrgico General del Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra.
The winners receive donations in their names to breast cancer charities or organisations of their choice. In addition, we are pleased to report that all three winners have been mentioned individually in the local press in Italy, France and Spain, respectively. Congratulations and thank you for your contributions to breast cancer awareness.
