iHire Honored by Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE)

Frederick, MD (May 2016) – For the fourth consecutive year, iHire was recognized for its workplace practices, earning two AWE Awards: the Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval Award and the Health and Wellness Seal of Approval Award.

The Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval Award celebrates companies with outstanding corporate culture, management methods, work environment flexibility, and employee engagement/communication programs. As a Results-Only Work Environment (ROWE), iHire evaluates employees on their performance (rather than their presence) and encourages self-management among staff members.

The Health and Wellness Seal of Approval Award is given to organizations that demonstrate superiority in health and wellness education, awareness, and assessment initiatives. Monthly educational programs, newsletters, wellness challenges, healthy food options, and gym discounts are among iHire’s various wellness offerings.

2016 marks the 17th year that AWE has recognized excellence in the workplace. The 62 award-winning companies represent organizations of all sizes and in all industry types from across the United States. 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, diversity and inclusion, environmental science, and public health.

“We take pride in our company culture and the happiness, health, and wellness of our employees,” said Lisa Shuster, iHire’s Chief Administrative Officer. “Receiving recognition from AWE for the fourth year in a row means a lot.”

“It means we must be doing something right,” iHire’s Administrative Manager Vickie Krolak added with a smile. “But we’ll keep working to find new ways to engage our employees and improve the work environment at iHire. We’d like to make it five years in a row!”
