April Is Earth Month!

April Is Earth Month!

It’s April, and while Earth Day is celebrated on April 22, we celebrate the earth year-round here at SCG. Our staff reduce food waste with SCG's Chuck-It Bucket food composting initiative. Since January 1, 2017, SCG staff have saved 137 pounds of food from being dumped into a landfill! Great for our Earth indeed. Food scraps help support a local flock of chickens owned by an SCG employee. Needless to say the chickens gobble them up! Now it only takes the slightest Chuck-It Bucket sound—even just a jiggle of the handle—for them to come running over in search of new goodies. The chickens return the favor by laying an egg every 1-4 days, depending on the season.

Mike Bykowski is no stranger to SCG. Although he has worked over the past 1½ years as SCG’s Content Development Manager on the NIDDK PICS contract, he previously worked for SCG from 1999-2005. Mike, along with his team, are transforming NIDDK’s health information content to ensure that it is up-to-date, scientifically accurate, and presented in a consumer-friendly way (i.e., consumable by the public using the “Bite, Snack, Meal” approach). The people he works with and the fact that no two days are the same (always new opportunities and challenges) are what he enjoys most about his job. When he isn’t at work, Mike enjoys traveling and spending time with his family. He’s a huge Chicago Cubs fan and is still celebrating their World Series victory.

Ava Wilt has served SCG as the company’s HR Manager for the past 1½ years. Human Resources has always been a passion of hers. The daily duties of her job make employee welfare and happiness a matter of professional responsibility. Each day on the job brings new and exciting challenges: one day she might be helping an employee navigate changes to their health insurance, while the next she could be dealing with the effects of new laws or regulations. In Ava’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family in the great outdoors doing things she loves: spelunking, snowboarding, hiking, surfing, and much more!
