Medcom Partners with Earth Charter International

Medcom Benefit Solutions and Earth Charter International announced this week the forging of a new partnership to work together and promote the development of sustainability and community outreach programs.

 

About Medcom Benefit Solutions…

Medcom is a leading benefits administration company located in Jacksonville, Florida. Our mission is to contribute to the security and well-being of our employee benefit clients, agency partners, and employees professionally and compassionately. Our vision is to bring innovation and transformative leadership to the Employee Benefit community.

"We are excited about our new partnership with Earth Chater International," states Medcom president, Michael J. Bracken. "The four pillars of the Earth Charter incorporate universal values such as ecological integrity, social and economic justice, democracy, nonviolence and peace, and respect and care for the diversity of all life. We are using the Earth Charter as a framework for integrating these values into our corporate culture. These values will serve as a guiding light to all of the Community Outreach programs in which our employees develop and engage. Our employees reach a large constituency of citizens and programs in need at local schools and the larger community. As an organization, we gain from their expanded sense of consciousness as a critical part of their professional and personal growth. In addition to this, ECI provides several dynamic and participatory online courses in sustainability and ethics, which we encourage and support our employees and extended community to take.”

About Earth Charter International…

The mission of Earth Charter International is to contribute with the transition to sustainable ways of living on the planet.

Goals:

  1. To raise awareness worldwide of the Earth Charter and to promote understanding of its inclusive, ethical vision.
  2. To promote the adoption and use of the Earth Charter as an ethical guide and the implementation of its principles by civil society, business, and government.
  3. To encourage and support the educational use of the Earth Charter in schools, universities, religious communities, local communities, and many other settings.
  4. To promote recognition and use of the Earth Charter as a soft law document.

Mirian Vilela, Secretariat of Earth Charter International, commented, "(ECI) welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with Medcom Benefit Solutions to share knowledge, experiences, and expand ECI’s vision and horizons." ECI is located at the University for Peace in San Jose, Costa Rica works closely with Medcom Benefit Solutions in promoting Earth Charter principles. 

Ms. Vilela continued to say, “The value of such collaboration cannot be measured in numbers but in new thinking, in re-framing conversations and the way we do things more constructively. Collaboration requires shared values and goals. We share the commitment to contribute to the common good and the betterment of our world by looking at the role of each individual and institution. We are confident that this new Partnership with Medcom will enable us to better contribute to the building of a more just, sustainable and peaceful local and global community.”

Medcom will utilize this partnership to increase employee involvement in the community and provide a more well-rounded workplace. We hope to contribute to the lives of our employees and the lives of those in the community, beyond benefits. We intend to provide local citizens and businesses with the tools to create and be a part of a cohesive, sustainable, empathetic, and forward-thinking place to live. Medcom Benefit Solutions is partnering with Earth Charter International with our future in mind.
