About the Award

The award is the result of a rigorous assessment. Worksites must first qualify in the top 20% of the country based on a nationally representative sample of employers. Two-thirds of the evaluation of applicants comes from an employee survey. Applicants are evaluated on six research-based ingredients of an effective workplace: opportunities for learning; a culture of trust; work-life fit; supervisor support for work success; autonomy; and satisfaction with earnings, benefits and opportunities for advancement — all factors associated with employee health, well-being, and engagement.

Specifically, Hannon Hill is being recognized for fostering a culture of workplace flexibility and effectiveness. Employees are provided unlimited paid-time off for vacation and sick leave, remote work options, paid maternity and paternity leave. In addition to, the paid-time off for volunteering, an annual retreat and paid membership access to Lynda.com, an online learning resource, as well as up to $250 annually for any organization memberships and affiliations.
