Frederick, MD – iHire was recognized for their innovative workforce and family-friendly practices as the “Most Creative Workplace” in Frederick, a new category in the 2014 Frederick County Best Places to Work Awards.
Held at the Delaplaine Visual Education Arts Center, the annual event is a joint partnership between the Frederick County Workforce Services, City of Frederick Department of Economic Development, Frederick County Business Development and Retention, and Frederick County Chamber of Commerce. Ten companies were honored based on a variety of criteria including workplace culture, professional development, benefits and amenities, work-life balance, community involvement, and tools for healthy living. Median annual salaries, turnover rate, and diversity practices were also evaluated.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts to make iHire a great place to work,” said Lisa H. Shuster, SPHR, iHire’s Vice President, Human Resources. “As a company, we strive to help people find great jobs, but also to do our part in creating an environment in which our own employees are engaged, have a voice in the company, and can successfully contribute to our vision.”
In 2012, iHire implemented a Results-Only Work Environment (ROWE) that gives their employees the flexibility to work when, where, and with whom they want as long as company objectives are achieved. Since then, iHire has additionally received the Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility and the Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval from the Alliance for Workplace Excellence in 2013 and 2014.
