Cianbro's Mid-Atlantic Region has earned recognition for the entire company from the Baltimore Business Journal as a first place winner in the publication's Healthiest Employers contest. The companies that were honored with awards fall into five categories based on the size of the firm's workforce. Cianbro took first prize in the "1500 to 4999 employees" category. The competition is sponsored by the BBJ as a way to recognize those companies with policies and initiatives that promote the health and well-being of their employees.
"I'm proud to work for a company that promotes healthy lifestyles not just on the job, but encourages health and wellness for the entire family," said MAR HR Manager Neeley Stanton. "This is an inspiring award, because it honors the whole company. We owe special recognition to Operations, the Fabrication & Coating facilities, the Equipment Group and the jobsites, because without their cooperation, awards like this would not be possible."
Neeley says Cianbro's senior management leads the way by drawing up the healthy food choices, the exercise opportunities, and community involvement, which are all criteria for the company being chosen for this award. But it's up to the team members to follow through with cooperation and effort, and that's what has happened, she said. Another key reason for MAR's success in health and wellness is the work of Laura Cluster from Occupational Medical Consulting. "She does a fantastic job supporting our Operations teams in their efforts with Lunch & Learns and Breakfast & Learns, and supporting our efforts for community outreach like our blood drives," said Neeley.
