Posted in Awards on Wednesday, November 10, 2021
The Greater Des Moines Partnership today announced that NCMIC was named a 2021 Inclusion Award winner in the medium organization category (151-500 employees) at its 9th annual Inclusion Summit held at the FFA Enrichment Center at the Des Moines Area Community College Ankeny Campus.
The Inclusion awards honor and celebrate the success of organizations that have championed diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in their businesses, organizations and in the community. To qualify, organizations were required to be a regional member or investor of The Partnership. A selection committee made up of members of The Partnership’s Inclusion Council and The Partnership team evaluated the applications.
According to the announcement, NCMIC “has demonstrated an intentional focus on DEI. NCMIC CEO Mike McCoy was one of the first leaders in the region to sign the CEO Commitment to Racial Equity in DSM. NCMIC supports diverse suppliers and worked hard during the pandemic to keep employees engaged, holding drive-by celebrations for retirements and other milestones, offering resources and conversations around mental wellness, and hosting many other fun activities to keep employees happy and engaged.”
NCMIC’s “take care of our own” philosophy translates into efforts that engage not only employees, but also its customers and the community. A few of these examples include:
- Supporting area non-profits both financially and through volunteering with organizations such as Oakridge Neighborhood Services, Boys & Girls Club of Central Iowa, Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa
- Diversity and inclusion coaching and educational programming for staff
- A Rotational Employment Program that mentors and hires employees from diverse communities to work at NCMIC
- Programming, mentorship and support for NCMIC’s female employees, comprising 60% of the overall workforce, 50% of who are working in leadership or management positions
- Financing Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans totaling $11 million for chiropractors across the country during the pandemic.
“Having a diverse mix of voices inevitably changes the conversation. I believe that about our efforts to make NCMIC a more inclusive environment for everyone,” said NCMIC CEO Mike McCoy. “It’s not a one-time task either. We must consistently work toward building a more thoughtful and engaged workforce and be ready—and willing—to make changes that create a more open and inclusive environment. It only strengthens us as a company and human beings to lift everyone up regardless of background or experience. Am I proud of how far we’ve come? Of course, but there is still so much we can to be better in the years to come.”
