ESCA is excited to share that, this week; employee-owned Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) received the 2014 Better Workplace Award in the Innovative Benefits/Compensation category from the Association of Washington Business (AWB).
The Better Workplace Award recognizes companies that provide their workers with a family-friendly environment, promote safety and encourage their employees to reach their full potential through job training and compensation programs. Employee-owned companies provide a work environment where everyone is a valuable team member and each owner is important to the successes of the company as a whole. At a time when there are growing inequities for American workers, SEL is providing employee-owners not only a secure retirement but also an opportunity to grow professionally and move up the ladder.
Specifically, SEL offers their employees an on-site health center staffed with an advanced nurse practitioner, a wellness program complete with a workout facility and trained staff and the soon-to-open employee child-care center.
Upon receiving the award, Stacey Doty, director of Human Resources shared, “It’s exciting to be recognized for the Innovative Benefits/Compensation award. We strive to provide exceptional benefits, and this award acknowledges that others see value in what we are doing, and that makes us proud.”
The award was presented at AWB’s Annual Legislative Summit in Olympia, Washington, on February 6.
Congratulations Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories and thank you for being a great representation of the S ESOP world!
