On September 24, ERC honored the top 99 places to work in Northeast Ohio at its 2015 NorthCoast 99 Awards Event. The night started off with Carl Jara creating an amazing NorthCoast 99 sand sculpture with 3 tons of sand, followed by DJ Michelle Pesce setting the tone with awesome music and beats. Then, stories were told of community, bravery and risk-taking. The night concluded with Joe Castillo, a motivational speaker that brought stories to life through picturesque sand images he created with his own hands. By the end of the night, the audience left feeling uplifted and filled with a desire to do more than they ever dreamed.
Every year, the NorthCoast 99 award honors organizations that make an impact. This year, ERC chose to honor four organizations for the exceptional ways in which they, and their employees, made a difference in the lives of co-workers, customers, and their communities. Below are series videos that highlight the inspirational stories of the 2015 Workplace & Community Impact Award winners: Akron Children's Hospital, Human Arc, The Garland Company Inc., and The Cleveland Foundation.
