OCI Employees Help Establish DMEC Colorado Chapter
As a leader in the HR and Employee Benefits realm, OCI is a member of several industry associations. OCI’s expertise in data integration with regard to disability, absence management, and productivity has allowed us to contribute on several levels to the organization, DMEC.
DMEC, the Disability Management Employer Coalition, and OCI have a strong history of partnership. Most notably, we collaborated with DMEC and Spring Consulting to author a chapter of the book Tools of the Trade in 2010. Additionally, we have sponsored, exhibited and presented at the DMEC Annual Conference & Tradeshow for multiple years.
In 2011, the OCI and DMEC partnership continued to grow. Several employees from OCI, including Jennifer Downey, David Spring, and Rene Gates, volunteered their time to sit on a steering committee to establish a Colorado Chapter of DMEC. The initial meeting and efforts were successful and the Colorado Chapter of DMEC is now in full operation. The organization will host its second meeting this Thursday, February 23rd in Denver, CO. Details about the event can be found here.
In addition, OCI employees Jennifer Downey and Stacey McBride will sit on the Board of Directors of the DMEC Colorado Chapter for the 2012 year. OCI is very thankful for the partnership opportunities that DMEC has offered over the years and looks forward to the continued collaboration.
