Time Warner Inc. Honors Volunteers

Posted by Caleb Way

Employees of Time Warner Inc., a  2006 BCA 10 honoree and 2007 BCA Hall of Fame inductee, gathered this past Tuesday, June 3, in the name of corporate volunteering. The Richard D. Parsons Community Impact Awards, now in its 33rd year, recognizes the exceptional community and public service contributions of Time Warner Inc. employees. The company, which is a champion of employee engagement initiatives, holds true to the award’s credo of “honoring those who inspire us.”


If you joined the Arts & Business Council of New York on Twitter (@ArtsBizNY) last week as they dedicated Thursday, May 29 to the topic of employee engagement, you know that allowing time for and creating space for employees to exercise passions they already have increases productivity and creativity within the workplace. “I almost feel guilty for receiving an award for doing something that I love doing,” said Michael Rowell, a Shift Supervisor at Turner Broadcasting and 2014 honoree for his work with Open Hand, an Atlanta-based nonprofit that provides meals to the underprivileged.


This year, the arts, among many other worthy causes supported by Time Warner employees, had a seat at the table. Two of the five Richard D. Parsons Community Impact Awardees were honored for their contributions and civic work in the arts sector. Joe Raiola, Senior Editor at MAD Magazine, DC Entertainment is also the Artistic Director of Theater Within, a platform that he uses to present the performing arts as an agent of positive social change. He was recognized for his work in championing the Annual John Lennon Tribute Concert in New York City, the proceeds of which benefited local and international charities. Additionally, four HBO employees received accolade as a team for their involvement in California’s Young Storytellers Foundation (YSF). YSF works with students to build literacy and writing skills, turning their unique pieces into stage productions. The four honorees recruited a team of mentors from HBO for the YSF students, who advised them as they developed screenplays for an annual showcase.
Time Warner Inc.’s Richard D. Parsons Community Impact Awards serve as a great example of how to promote employee volunteering, engagement, and recognition. Not only are Time Warner employees engaged and inspired, they are given the chance to invest in causes that are near and dear to them, all the while giving support to worthy nonprofits.


For more from Time Warner Inc., join the Arts & Business Council of New York on Tuesday, June 24th as they host Alex Tapnio, Associate Manager, Marketing and Employee Programs/Corporate Responsibility for a workshop on how arts organizations can more effectively engage volunteers from the business community. Alex will be moderating a discussion between representatives from Free Arts NYC, Materials for the Arts, Only Make Believe, and Deutsche Bank as they speak to this topic of corporate volunteering and present proven methods and success stories.
