Frederick, MD (June 2017) – On June 2, 2017, iHire was recognized with a Gold Healthiest Maryland Businesses Wellness at Work Award for their exemplary accomplishments in worksite health promotion and commitment to improving employee health and wellbeing.
Howard Haft, Deputy Secretary of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, congratulated awards recipients at the 8th annual Maryland Workplace Health and Wellness Symposium in Baltimore, Maryland, noting, “In public health, we strive to improve health through community-based efforts. Our worksites are one place that most Marylanders spend a majority of their day and a crucial community in which to make the healthy choice the easy choice. Congratulations to all of the 2017 Wellness at Work Awards recipients.”
“We’re honored to be recognized again this year, and especially thrilled to achieve the Gold Award!” said Vickie Krolak, iHire’s Administrative Manager. “In 2016, we added new offerings such as biometric screenings and onsite flu shots. In 2017, we are excited to focus on the total wellbeing of our employees and expand our efforts even further.”
