Seminole State receives Seal of Distinction award for second time

Seminole State College hosts a service recognition and retiree luncheon for its dedicated faculty and staff. It's one of many programs the College provides to invest in its employees.

For the second consecutive year, Seminole State College of Florida has earned the Seal of Distinction from WorldatWork. The seal is a unique mark of excellence designed to identify organizational success in total rewards effectiveness. It also recognizes the College’s outstanding commitment to employee engagement.

“Our faculty and staff are the heart of our institution,” says Mae Ashby, associate vice president of Human Resources at Seminole State. “Seminole State College provides programs that celebrate their individuality and assist them to be their best both at work and at home. The Seal of Distinction recognizes our commitment to creating a great workplace for our employees. We are honored to be in such wonderful company of the other 2017 recipients and pleased to be recognized for the second consecutive year!"

Seminole State offers an attractive benefits package including a generous time-off policy, tuition reimbursement, participation in the Florida Retirement System and professional development opportunities for its full-time employees, plus the opportunity to participate in a physical activity-based rewards program, free annual health fairs and a host of other services.

The College will be recognized during the WorldatWork Total Rewards Conference & Exhibition, May 7-10, in Washington, D.C. to celebrate all Seal of Distinction honorees. Seminole State is one of only seven organizations in Florida and one of 160 organizations nationwide to earn the award for 2017.

Started in 2012, the prestigious Seal of Distinction is awarded to companies that meet defined standards of workplace programs, policies and practices weighted on several factors, such as the complexity of implementation, required organizational resources, perceived breadth of access and overall level of commitment from leadership. Factors include:

  • Caring for dependents

  • Workplace Flexibility
  • Financial support and education
  • Paid and unpaid time off
  • Community involvement
  • Workforce experience and engagement
  • Recognition
  • Performance management

This year’s recipients represent industries of education, finance, government, health, law, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals, and they hail from 36 states, the District of Columbia and Canada.
