ASHA and two of its programs recently received accolades for its diversity recruitment efforts and for the quality of its workplace.
Two diversity recruitment efforts—Student to Empowered Professional and the Minority Student Leadership Program—earned ASHA a 2014 Summit Award from the American Society of Association Executives.
The award—ASAE’s highest honor—recognizes the contributions associations make to society by enriching lives, creating a competitive workforce, preparing society for the future, driving innovation and making a better world. ASHA is one of only six associations to receive the award, which will be presented Oct. 1 in Washington, D.C.
The other award recognizes the association’s work culture: ASHA ranked 14th in The Washington Post’s list of the 50 midsize “Top Places to Work” in the Washington, D.C., area.
To identify the Top Workplaces, the Post ran articles and advertisements encouraging employees in the region to nominate their companies as Top Workplaces. WorkplaceDynamics, an employee survey firm, invited the nominated companies, as well as other organizations in the region, to participate in the program. Anyone could nominate any public, private, nonprofit or governmental company that employs at least 50 people in the greater Washington area.
Out of 1,672 companies invited to participate, 244 were surveyed. The top 50 companies in each of three size categories were determined from employees’ responses to a 22-item survey covering how employees view their job and the health of their organization.
The Post article cited ASHA’s telecommuting policy, condensed summer work schedule, carpool program, fitness classes and exercise room, and monthly health screenings, as well as the Gold LEED-certified national office building.
