Emmes today announced that it has received a Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval from Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE). This is the fifth consecutive year the company has received the AWE Workplace Excellence award.
The AWE created the annual recognition program to honor organizations that show an exemplary commitment to building excellent places to work in Montgomery County, Maryland, and throughout the United States. Workplace Excellence winners are evaluated on such attributes as innovative corporate culture and management practices, family-friendly policies and programs, employee growth and learning opportunities, and a commitment to corporate responsibility.
Emmes also received a Health & Wellness Seal of Approval from the AWE for innovative programs promoting employee health and wellness. The AWE award considered employee health fairs, support for physical activity and healthy eating programs, health risk assessments, educational programs on healthy lifestyle, and incentives for participation in wellness programs.
In addition to the AWE recognition, Emmes was honored with a Gold Award from the Maryland Department of Health. Its Healthiest Maryland Businesses Wellness at Work Awards program salutes businesses in the state that are committed to improving employee health and well-being.
According to the Maryland Department of Health, Healthiest Maryland Businesses is a collaborative of Maryland businesses with a shared mission of improving health through worksite wellness efforts.
