A longtime Cardinal Heath employee who’s a familiar face at Center for Operational Excellence events has been presented with the company’s highest honor.
Dublin, Ohio-based Cardinal Health, a COE member since 2006, this spring announced that Charlotte Click, manager of manufacturing planning, was one of four winners of the Robert D. Walter Founder’s Award. The honor, named after the health-care distribution giant’s founder, is given to employees who exemplify Cardinal’s values and inspire others.
Click was one of four winners of the Founder’s Award, which also went to Daniel Bishop, director, Financial Planning and Analysis in Cardinal’s Houston office; Dianne Radigan, VP, Community Relations; and Michael Scrase, VP, IT Management. Winners came from a pool of more than 250 nominations and 15 finalists.
Click has spent a decade at Cardinal, which she joined after working for Constellation Energy Group in Baltimore for 13 years. At Cardinal, she has held a wide range of roles, including a two-year stint as a Black Belt with the company’s Operational Excellence team. She’s heavily involved in the company’s Employee Resource Groups and says she has a special passion for the Equality Network, a group for LGBT employees and their allies. A Pittsburgh native, Click and her husband, Brian, have five children in their blended family.
“I feel like my time here has mattered and I have been able to enrich lives,” Click said upon receiving the honor. “To me, that is the ultimate achievement.”
