( 09/30/2014 )
(Cary, NC - Sept. 30, 2014) - LORD Corporation received recognition for the company's commitment to employee health and wellness by both the Dayton Business Journal for its facility in Dayton, Ohio, and the Pittsburgh Business Times, for its facilities in Cambridge Springs, Saegertown, and Erie, Pa.
The Dayton Business Journal's fourth annual Healthiest Employer Award acknowledges companies and nonprofit businesses that strive to make wellness a priority and encourage healthier lifestyles for employees. An award presentation held Aug. 7 at Sinclair Community College honored the LORD Dayton facility.
The Pittsburgh Business Times annual Western Pennsylvania's Healthiest Employer Awards similarly recognize companies in the Western Pennsylvania region that make wellness a priority for employees. An award luncheon held June 5 at the Omni William Penn Hotel ranked the LORD Erie, Cambridge Springs and Saegertown facilities second in their company size (1,500-4,999).
Reflecting its core values, LORD Corporation maintains a strong commitment to developing a culture of wellness within the organization that will impact the long-term health and well-being of all employees, maintain a healthy and productive workforce, and slow the rate of increasing healthcare costs for employees.
"We are honored to receive this positive recognition in both Dayton and Western Pennsylvania," said Ed Auslander, LORD Corporation president and CEO. "Wellness is a top priority at all of our facilities, and we're encouraged to see our wellness program upholds our mission to create 'A Better, Healthier LORD.'"
