MISO’s 2019 Community Impact Report highlights the numerous MISO programs and initiatives that underpin community service and diversity and inclusion. Its format has changed, utilizing the new CEROS animation tool, which displays many graphics and photos to bring the report to life.
The MISO vision is to the most reliable, value-creating RTO. This vision extends far beyond the worksite walls and into the communities where MISO offices are located. The commitment to serve runs through the MISO culture, whether it’s the generous contributions to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, donating food, or building houses, MISO employees can be seen giving back to their communities. In 2019, 4,718 hours of community service were logged by MISO employees who donated their time.
Pride is strongly felt among MISO’s employees—not only pride in their jobs but also pride in giving back to their communities and to those less fortunate. Commitment is one of the MISO Core Values and it shows—not only through the thousands of hours of community service each year, but, also in the financial contributions made by MISO employees to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and other worthy organizations. In 2019, nearly $300,000 was pledged by MISO employees to their local Make-A-Wish chapters. A few of the other community programs that are helped by the efforts of MISO employees are Meals on Wheels, food banks and Habitat for Humanity.
Through a strong company culture that fosters growth, diversity and inclusion and professional development, these are the cornerstones that fuel MISO’s success. Led by a Diversity and Inclusion Council, the vision of its members is to deliver on the MISO mission by harnessing MISO’s collective strength, embracing differences and creating a workplace where employees can thrive. The MISO Employee Resource Groups, nearly 600 MISO employees strong, encourage community engagement and support as well as employee development through peer-to-peer interactions.
