For the 2nd consecutive year, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) has been ranked among the top 10 companies honored by The Gazette of Politics and Business' "Exceptional 53" Award program.
Annually, the publication honors 53 companies for their active commitment to social responsibility and community outreach, strong membership growth, and continuing efforts to evolve and improve employee programs and services.
ASHA has been honored every year since the award program began 5 years ago, and it has ranked among the top companies for 3 of those 5 years.
ASHA's accomplishments were profiled in the Friday, October 26 special section of The Gazette of Politics and Business.
"It's an honor to be recognized as one of Maryland's best businesses," ASHA Chief Executive Officer Arlene A. Pietranton, PhD, CAE, says. "ASHA has strong Maryland roots, and we believe that it is not only our responsibility to provide quality services to our members, but also to be good citizens of the local community where and when we can. This outlook stems from our work environment where employees can achieve a healthy work-life balance."
