When working for a company that emphasizes employee growth and development, it makes you work all the harder. At least that’s been my experience. The company wants you to succeed, and therefore you want to succeed. But still, there are a lot of companies that don’t invest in their employees.
So the ones that do should be recognized. Helios HR, who provide outsourced human resource services focused on solutions that maximize employee productivity and retention, will present the 2007 Helios HR Apollo Awards at a breakfast ceremony this Friday to four companies who are committed to offering meaningful workplace experiences. The award winners will be chosen from the following list of 12 finalists:
