New York, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2006
Beatrice Harris, PhD, founder of Harris, Rothenberg International (HRI), LLC, a global performance management company, has been awarded the 2006 Highest Leaf Award honoring outstanding women in business.
Nominees for the Highest Leaf Award are selected by a national panel of distinguished business executives from a broad range of industries and professions, including manufacturing, finance, and media. Sponsored by the Women's Venture Fund, the award pays tribute to women whose professional behavior is a positive influence on others and who personify an understanding of the balance between outcome and responsibility in the workplace. As role models within their professions, Highest Leaf Award recipients exemplify the attributes that the Women’s Venture Fund seeks to instill in aspiring entrepreneurs.
"I'm honored to be on the prestigious list of Highest Leaf Award winners," says Dr. Harris. "My personal mission to elevate the importance of our emotional lives and the need to address their impact on how we live, act, and make decisions are expressed in HRI and in everything I do."
Dr. Harris founded HRI in 1982 based on a holistic or systems view of the world. She saw the need for employees to be helped with their day-to-day interactions within their organizations as well as in their lives outside the office. HRI was the first organization to integrate multiple support services for companies and their employees.
Dr. Harris recognizes companies as the communities of the future, and it is the goal of HRI to serve businesses' various needs through diverse services. HRI’s model is problem-solving-based and relationship-driven rather than product-oriented. HRI's high involvement in client cultures distinguishes it from competitors.
Dr. Harris has grown HRI into one of the fastest-growing providers of employee assistance and work/life programs and related services in the United States. HRI's services help companies increase employee engagement and recruit and retain the best employees.
