For the third straight year, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has been named an "exceptional" business in Maryland.
At an awards program last night, ASHA ranked 12th out of 53 businesses across the state that were recognized by The Gazette of Politics and Business for their growth, employment satisfaction, community service, and innovation.
"It is an honor to be among such remarkable and responsible businesses in Maryland," ASHA Executive Director Arlene Pietranton says. "We extend our congratulations to our fellow award recipients. This recognition serves as a motivator to continue to strive to do our best in the important areas covered by this award."
ASHA was recognized for its Listen to Your Buds public education campaign (www.listentoyourbuds.org), which educates children on safe usage of personal audio devices; strong and active commitment to social responsibility and community outreach; and, its "great place to work" attributes.
