Chaney Embodies Workplace Quality with Ninth Consecutive Excellence Award

AWE award

Chaney Enterprises announced it has won its ninth consecutive Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE) Seal of Approval award for its commitment to supporting employees and their communities.

The AWE Seal of Approval is awarded to companies on the criteria of balanced leadership and overall workforce success.  Chaney’s selection for this award recognizes its corporate culture, employee opportunity, commitment to social and civic responsibility, and diversity and inclusion practices, among other attributes.  Chaney was also awarded the AWE Health & Wellness Seal of Approval and the AWE EcoLeadership Award, applauding employee health and wellness initiatives and commitment to environmental sustainability, respectively. 

As one of 54 employers of all sizes and industry types from across the country being recognized, Chaney is the only concrete and aggregate supplier in the region to receive the awards this year.

“We pride ourselves on delivering excellent service and providing a superior workplace that supports our employees to do so,” said Francis “Hall” Chaney, III, president of Chaney Enterprises. “This continued recognition as a leader in workplace quality is encouraging and is a reflection of our team’s commitment to one another and our mission.”

All nominees for AWE awards undergo a rigorous assessment process led by an independent review panel of business professional and master’s and Ph.D. level students in the fields of business, industrial and organizational psychology, human resources, environmental science, public health, and diversity and inclusion.

Chaney employees were on hand to receive the awards during a gala celebration and recognition ceremony held in Gaithersburg, Md.
