The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has been awarded the Workplace Excellence, Health & Wellness Trailblazer, and EcoLeadership awards for 2010 by the Alliance for Workplace Excellence.
ASHA is one of 15 Washington-area organizations to win all three awards. Altogether, the Alliance gave awards to 67 companies. Winners will be honored during a noon – 2:00 p.m. ceremony on Monday, June 13, at the Bethesda North Marriott Convention Center. More than 600 business executives are expected to attend.
The Alliance for Workplace Excellence, a nonprofit organization founded by Montgomery County, Md. and Discovery Communications, Inc., provides a portfolio of services that allow employers to build excellent places to work. The Alliance will recognize ASHA for promoting professional fulfillment as well as personal wellness at work, home, and in the community, and for demonstrating commitment to environmental sustainability.
The Workplace Excellence and Health & Wellness Trailblazer awards highlight businesses that are successful promoting employee engagement, corporate social responsibility, diversity and inclusion, total rewards programs and benefits, and more.
The EcoLeadership Award honors companies that recognize the importance of waste minimization, energy demand and supply, water conservation practices, toxic and hazardous substances/pollution prevention, building operations, and employee engagement and communication.
"ASHA is honored to receive these awards," ASHA Executive Director Arlene A. Pietranton, PhD, CAE, says. "They directly reflect ASHA’s responsible and supportive culture, which we believe helps our staff, our members, and the local community."
