CNS’ wellness and community outreach programs netted the organization back-to-back honors.
POOLESVILLE, Md. – The Alliance for Workplace Excellence, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by Montgomery County, Maryland, and Discovery Communications, Inc., awarded Corporate Network Services (CNS) with the 2011 Excellent Place to Work, Health & Wellness Trailblazer and EcoLeader awards. It marks the second time in as many years that Corporate Network Services has won all three awards. Last year, CNS was the only company with fewer than 50 employees to win all three awards.
“These awards have so much meaning for us,” said Brenda Sneed, CNS president. “They validate our hard work in making CNS a great place to work in our competitive industry and geographic location. We have a small, family-oriented company, but with the same benefits of a much larger company.”
The Workplace Excellence and Health & Wellness Trailblazer awards highlight businesses that promote professional fulfillment and personal wellness at work, at home, and in the community. All award applicants undergo a rigorous assessment process led by an independent review panel. Corporate Network Services demonstrated equal merit in each of the following categories:
- Workforce demographics
- Management practices
- Employee engagement
- Corporate social responsibility
- Diversity and inclusion
- Total rewards programs and benefits
- Employee voice survey
Launched in 2009, the EcoLeadership Award honors companies that recognize the importance of environmental sustainability by demonstrating commitment to the following categories:
- Waste minimization
- Energy demand and supply
- Water conservation practices
- Toxic and hazardous substances/pollution prevention
- Building operations
- Employee engagement and communication
CNS will receive its award at the awards luncheon on June 13 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. Sixty-seven Greater Washington, D.C., area businesses will be honored at the event, representing more than one million employees from organizations of all sizes and in all sectors—private, public and nonprofit.
