On April 10, 2015, Mayor Karl Dean recognized 20 workplaces for earning distinction in the Mayor’s Workplace Challenge Hall of Fame, including Hands On Nashville!
The Mayor’s Workplace Challenge encourages and recognizes places of work to excel in three areas that contribute to a high quality of life: being green, healthy and involved in the community. It is the first three-tiered challenge of its kind in the country, and other cities are replicating this initiative in their own communities.
“I applaud the continued success of these workplaces in being environmentally friendly, promoting healthy choices among its employees and encouraging a culture of service through volunteerism,” Mayor Dean said. “The responses to the Workplace Challenge continue to be impressive and further exemplify why Nashville is such a great city to live and work.”
The third round of the Mayor’s Workplace Challenge concluded last month with total participation of over 235 workplaces representing more than 105,000 employees in Nashville.
Thank you, Mayor Dean, for this honor!
