The Alliance for Workplace Excellence has named Foundation Financial Group one of the 2012 EcoLeadership award winners.
The EcoLeadership Award was launched in 2009 and honors companies that recognize the importance of environmental sustainability and that demonstrate a commitment to being eco-friendly. Foundation Financial Group was selected because the company is dedicated to the environment in waste minimization, energy demand and supply, building operations and pollution prevention.
“We have a commitment to our employees and to each other to make the world a better place,” said Foundation Financial Group’s CEO Mark W. Boyer. “We have had huge success with Project Sequoia, our environmental corporate sustainability program, and we continue to make strides in reducing Foundation Financial Group’s carbon footprint.”
Project Sequoia is Foundation Financial Group’s fully secure, integrated, paperless document management system that includes an entirely paperless origination, processing, shipping and storage process for all of Foundation Financial Group’s affiliates. Since its inception in 2011, Project Sequoia has improved efficiency and time management at Foundation Financial Group.
In conjunction with Project Sequoia, Foundation Financial Group also uses a paperless hiring system that will save the company $25,000 previously spent on paper and printer cartridges. Replacing the paper-intensive processes are eSignatures for loan paperwork, a new document storage process and adoption of signature capture pads used in the hiring process. Foundation Financial Group has also implemented the use of ceramic mugs and 16-ounce drinking cups that have replaced Styrofoam cups, a move that saves about 21,000 cups per month.
The Alliance for Workplace Excellence will host its annual awards luncheon from on June 11, 2012 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. At this event, 73 businesses will be honored and more than 500 area business executives are expected to attend; 28 companies will be receiving the EcoLeadership Award.
The Alliance has recognized best places to work for the past 12 years, distinguishing health and wellness trailblazers and EcoLeaders dedicated to creating sustainable workplaces.
