Two organizations recently honored ASHA for its workplace initiatives.
Washington Post
For the fifth consecutive year, ASHA is included in the Washington Post’s 150 top workplaces in the Washington, D.C., area.
The rankings are based solely on employee surveys that benchmark organizational health, employee engagement and compensation.
“Receiving this honor from The Washington Post is a reminder and an inspiration for us to continue to strive toward a competitive and rewarding workplace,” says Arlene Pietranton, ASHA chief executive officer, “one that attracts the caliber of talent that is essential to support our members and affiliates in the professions of audiology and speech-language pathology.”
Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE)
For the 19th consecutive year, ASHA has received AWE employer awards for its exemplary commitment to building excellent places to work in Montgomery County, Maryland, and throughout the United States.
AWE has added categories to its awards program since its 1999 creation. ASHA has received each award every year since each was established.
ASHA earned the Workplace Excellence Seal of approval, which recognizes outstanding commitment to balanced leadership and the overall success of their workforce; the Diversity Champion Award, which acknowledges commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive workforce; the EcoLeadership Award, which identifies commitments to environmental sustainability; and the Health and Wellness Seal of Approval, which acknowledges workplaces that have innovative programs for employee health and wellness.
AWE, a nonprofit organization founded in 1999 by Montgomery County and Discovery Communications, aims to help employers build excellence in the workplace as a means of supporting the quality of life for employees, their families and the community at large.
“We at ASHA are proud to once again be honored by the Alliance for Workplace Excellence,” says Pietranton. “To be recognized for our commitment to diversity, wellness and social responsibility is not only a testament to the values we champion in our office, but also a reflection of the principles that guide the audiologists and speech-language pathologists who are our members.”
