In the spirit of the MediQuant culture, the employees of MediQuant initiated and formed a charitable organization called In Great Company, One Can Do Great Things. The program is a focused fundraising effort that benefits a different employee-selected charity each year.
Tony Paparella, MediQuant founder and President, has fostered a strong company culture at MediQuant that emphasizes the idea of family and community, which colleagues at MediQuant embrace as well.
"Traditional businesses take care of people,” said Terry Buterbaugh. “Giving back is part of the American way, and it's one of Tony's core values that we're always going to uphold. We created this project to honor his character.”
The staff created In Great Company, One Can Do Great Things in 2014 and then surprised Tony with it at a company meeting.
