For the twelfth year in a row, Optimal Networks has received the Workplace Excellence Award from the Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE). The company will be recognized for their dedication to building an outstanding place to work at the Annual Awards Celebration Friday, June 7 at the Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center. The event will honor the recipients of the 2019 AWE Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval, Health & Wellness Seal of Approval, EcoLeadership Award, and Diversity Champion Award.
Optimal Networks received the Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval on the basis of its innovative corporate culture, inventive management practices, workforce demographics, employee engagement and retention programs, commitment to corporate social responsibility, diversity and inclusion programs, workplace benefits and rewards, family-friendly policies, and comprehensive growth and learning opportunities.
“Since the company’s inception in 1991, it’s been an ongoing goal to cultivate a culture that makes employees eager to come to work in the morning,” said Heinan Landa, Founder of Optimal Networks. “We have a lot of fun and really invest in creating a stimulating environment that fosters personal and professional growth. To be honored twelve years in a row for that is humbling and rewarding.”
This year marks the 20th year that AWE will recognize excellence in the workplace. Out of hundreds of applicants, a total of 44 employers of all sizes and industries from across the United States were recognized for their exemplary commitment to building excellent places to work. All award recipients undergo a rigorous assessment process led by an independent review panel of business professional and Master’s and/or Ph.D. level students in the fields of business, industrial and organizational psychology, human resources, environmental science, public health and diversity and inclusion.
