ASHA recently received recognition as a top place to work from The Washington Post and the Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE).
ASHA was one of 60 mid-size organizations and companies in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area named in the Post’s “Top Workplaces” program. Selections are based on employee feedback gathered through a survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC. ASHA has received this recognition every year since the program began four years ago.
The survey assessed organizational health, which encompasses direction (employees emotionally buying into what the organization is striving to achieve), execution (a high-performance culture) and connection (employees feel appreciated and that their work is meaningful). According to the Top Workplaces program, these elements are more important to employee satisfaction than pay, benefits and other commonly cited factors.
The Post cited ASHA for its “well-educated and diverse” workforce (75 percent female, almost 40 percent with a master’s degree, and 28 languages spoken), wellness benefits, health benefits and success-sharing program.
AWE honors employers for building excellent places to work in Montgomery County, Maryland. ASHA received honors in all four areas of the AWE program—Workplace Excellence, Health and Wellness, EcoLeadership, and Diversity. The program began in 1999 with one award category, and has added others in ensuing years.
An independent review panel assesses award recipients for their exemplary commitment to building excellent places to work in Montgomery County and throughout the United States.
“ASHA is very proud to once again receive these tremendous accolades from The Washington Post and the Alliance for Workplace Excellence,” says Arlene Pietranton, ASHA chief executive officer. “Our organization strives to cultivate an environment where employees can grow and succeed, all the while feeling supported, respected and fulfilled. Not only does this help us attract and retain the finest talent, but it also helps us do the best possible work on behalf of our 191,500 members and affiliates in the professions of audiology and speech-language pathology.”
