ASHA was awarded 4th place among employers with 250 to 499 employees in recognition of its programs and efforts to improve the health and wellness of its staff.
This is the 2nd year that the WBJ has honored the most outstanding health and wellness programs and work environments implemented by local companies. Because of its commitment to employees' health, ASHA will be profiled, along with other winners, in the Washington Business Journal on newsstands today.
