The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has been awarded the Workplace Excellence Award by the Alliance for Workplace Excellence.
ASHA was recognized for its supportive corporate culture and management practices, family- and employee-friendly policies and practices, strong employee health and wellness initiatives, comprehensive growth and learning opportunities, and demonstration of corporate social responsibility and employee volunteerism.
Over the years, ASHA has repeatedly won awards from the Alliance. The Workplace Excellence Award has been given to the Association in consecutive years since the award's inception in 1999.
This year, award winners will be honored on June 1 during a ceremony at the Bethesda North Marriott Convention Center from noon to 2:00 p.m. More than 600 business executives from the Greater Washington area are expected to attend the event, which will recognize 61 winners of the 2010 Workplace Excellence Award.
"ASHA is very honored to receive this award again," ASHA Executive Director Arlene Pietranton says. "We believe that ASHA’s responsible and supportive culture and our commitment to reaching out to our local area helps our staff, our members, and the community."
