Frederick, MD (May 2017) – iHire has been acknowledged for their exceptional workplace practices in the form of two AWE Awards: Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval Award and Health and Wellness Seal of Approval Award. This is the fifth consecutive year iHire has been recognized by the AWE.
The Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval Award recognizes companies who show an outstanding commitment to overall workplace quality. They are evaluated on programs in communication, diversity, employee growth, work-life balance, and more. iHire is a Results-Only Work Environment (ROWE), evaluating employees on their performance (rather than their presence) and focusing on results, self-management, and flexibility.
The Health and Wellness Seal of Approval Award is given to organizations that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to employee health and wellness—and have led the way by developing innovative programs. Educational sessions, newsletters, wellness challenges, healthy food options, onsite biometric screenings, and gym discounts are among iHire’s various wellness offerings.
All award recipients undergo a rigorous assessment process led by an independent review panel of business professionals and master’s and Ph.D.-level students in the fields of business, industrial and organizational psychology, human resources, environmental science, public health, and diversity and inclusion.
“iHire strives to create an environment where our employees can thrive and maintain a work-life balance,” said Vickie Krolak, iHire’s Administrative Manager. “We’re honored to receive these awards again this year and look forward to continually improving our workplace quality and employee wellness initiatives.”
The AWE will host their Annual Awards Luncheon on June 9, 2017. This year marks the 18th year that AWE will recognize excellence in the workplace. The 54 award-winning companies represent organizations of all sizes and in all industry types from across the United States.
