The Conference Board announced that it has become a Robert W. Campbell Award Global Partner with the National Safety Council. Named for the first president of NSC, Robert W. Campbell, the award recognizes organizations that have demonstrated leadership and business excellence by integrating health, safety and environmental management into their overall business operations.
The Campbell Award, which is underwritten by the Exxon Mobil Corporation through its philanthropic foundation, will be presented during the opening session of NSC's 93rd Annual Congress & Expo on Wednesday, Sept. 21 in Orlando, Florida.
The Conference Board joins a global network of 15 other organizations to provide international outreach, expertise and support for this program throughout the world.
“It is a pleasure to work with the National Safety Council in recognizing companies that have stellar records of accomplishment in linking health, safety and environmental issues into their everyday business strategies,” said Richard E. Cavanagh, President and CEO of The Conference Board. “Safety, health and the environment have been major areas of concern since The Conference Board was created nearly 90 years ago. This Award is in keeping with The Conference Board’s long-standing mission of helping companies strengthen their business performance and better serve society.”
Noble Corporation, the Texas-based oil and gas drilling contracting company, was the inaugural Campbell Award winner last year. Since then, the Noble Corporation case study has been developed into training modules for business executives and incorporated into the business and engineering school curricula of Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business.
“The recipients of this award exemplify the successful integration of safety, health and environmental practices into an organization’s management processes,” said Mei-Li Lin, Ph.D., Executive Director, Research and Statistical Services for NSC, and Director of the Robert W. Campbell Award program. “Through our work with business groups and business schools, we hope to influence current and future managers in their understanding of the role that safety, health and environmental concerns play in the productivity and profitability of their organizations.”
