The University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center has received multiple accolades recently. For the 15th successive year, the medical center has earned the Workplace Excellence Seal of Approval Award from the Alliance for Workplace Excellence. UM Charles Regional Medical Center was also awarded the Health & Wellness Seal of Approval award, for the 13th successive year, and the Ecoleadership award for a second year.
“There is a lot to be said for the continued growth and development of our organization and our workforce,” said Stacey Cook, UM Charles Regional Medical Center vice president of human resources. “To be recognized again this year for the programs we offer that help our employees with work life balance, opportunities for development, wellness and a positive impact on the environment is amazing.”
The Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE) is a non-profit based in Montgomery County, Maryland, dedicated to increasing workplace excellence through education and recognition, in order to strengthen quality of life and economic growth. They do so with several kinds of awards, including those recently given to UM Charles Regional Medical Center. All recipients are thoroughly assessed by an independent review panel.
The Workplace Excellence award is given those with strong commitment to balance in leadership and success throughout their workforce, where the Ecoleadership award is given to employers leading the way for environmental sustainability within the workplace. The Health & Wellness Seal of Approval is awarded to employers who create and provide programs to better employees’ health and wellness.
These awards and successes are the result of UM Charles Regional Medical Center putting their employees and community first and foremost every day. “We are celebrating 80 years of service to the community this year and that would not be possible without our engaged and committed employees,” Cook added.
