The grand-prize winners of the ERI 2007 Great California Workplaces Award contest are Lundberg Family Farms (for-profit category) and California Pacific Medical Center (non-profit category). Honorable mentions went to La Costa Glen (for-profit) and California ISO (non-profit).
The ERI Great California Workplaces Award, sponsored by the Employer Resource Institute (http://www.employeradvice.com), recognizes California employers of all sizes that have implemented unique, innovative, or exceptionally effective programs that make them stand out.
"California is in many ways a unique environment for employers, and the goal of the ERI Great California Workplaces Award is to share the best practices of top employers in our state," says Matthew Humphrey, General Manager of ERI. "We're looking for real practices that work for real businesses--tactics that make them better places to work and more successful organizations."
All contest entries were reviewed by a team of ERI staff members, who narrowed the applicants down to a pool of finalists. Six expert judges determined the winner. This year's judges were: Lloyd W. Aubry, Jr., Esq., of Morrison & Foerster; Shari Dunn of CompAnalysis; Diana C. Gregory, SPHR, of Administaff; Allen M. Kato, Esq., of Fenwick & West; Allison West, Esq., SPHR, of Employment Practices Specialists; and Rhoma Young of Rhoma Young & Associates.
As the grand-prize winners, Lundberg Family Farms and California Pacific Medical Center each received a one-year subscription to California Employer Advisor Online (a $399 value), front-page coverage in upcoming issues of the California Employer Advisor, and engraved award plaques for display. The two honorable mentions will receive mentions in the cover stories, as well as engraved award plaques for display.
