Building Efficiency President Dave Myers volunteers to help local hospital and research center pursue their mission of improving pediatric medicine
Dave Myers, vice president and president, Johnson Controls Building Efficiency, volunteers his time and expertise serving on the boards of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and the Children’s Research Institute. These separate but affiliated entities share a mission about which he cares deeply.
“I believe in their goal of ensuring that we have the healthiest children possible,” Myers said. “I feel that way as a parent, but also as a representative of Johnson Controls. Improving the health of our children is a fundamental way we can make a positive difference in our community.”
Advancing pediatric medicine and research
Children’s Hospital is one of the nation’s leading pediatric hospitals and one of the busiest, caring for nearly 350,000 infants, children and adolescents in 2011 alone. They work to improve medical treatment and outcomes. They focus on reducing infant mortality and seeing that children get proper vaccinations and treatments early to avoid illness later on.
The Children’s Research Institute advances pediatric research. They conduct clinical trials and help secure grants for doctors and researchers to continue their efforts to improve pediatric medicine.
As a board member, Myers advises both organizations on how to improve processes and productivity to facilitate the delivery of quality pediatric care while reducing overall healthcare costs.
Encouraging volunteerism among leaders
Myers believes it is important that company leaders lend their time and talents to improve local communities. “When you see leadership dedicating personal time to worthwhile causes, it sends a strong message about the priority we place on being involved in communities where we have a presence.” he said.
He also underscores the importance of the Executive Involvement & Steering Program: "A program like this that promotes and facilitates volunteerism among our leaders reinforces what we as a company are all about and our ability to make a difference," Myers said.
Growth and leadership in service to our communities
The Executive Involvement & Steering Program has grown considerably since its inception in 2008. In fact, in the first three years of the program’s existence, executive and leader participation increased 321 percent. That growth has resulted from the enthusiasm and dedication of our executives around the world, with the full support of the company at the highest levels.
“At Johnson Controls, we look to ways in which we impact the communities where we live and work and the world beyond,” said Chairman and CEO Steve Roell. “It’s a practice that aligns with our vision of creating a more comfortable, safe and sustainable world.
