Helios HR Honored As Community Leader Through CARE Awards

CARE Award Winner – Dev Technology

Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS) selects Helios HR as a leader in community impact, family-friendly policies and employee engagement to receive its Companies As Responsive Employers (CARE) Awards.

(Reston, Va. – October 4, 2018) For more than 25 years, the CARE Awards have recognized outstanding companies moving the needle to make Northern Virginia a better place for everyone to work, live and play. Community engagement — along with outstanding employee engagement and culture, and progressive family-friendly policies — is a key pillar of CARE-ing companies.

For the second year, Helios HR will be honored as a responsive employer for its deep community impact, outstanding employee engagement and culture, and progressive family-friendly policies.

“As an employer, the number one word the Helios HR team uses to describe our culture is caring. We foster a culture that allows employees to bring their “whole to self” to work.  For us, this encourages people to be authentic. We demonstrate caring by providing team support as we celebrate together and lift each other up through struggles. We fully believe that people thrive in community, and it is our hope that we are a catalyst for positive change,” said Kathy Albarado, CEO.

CARE Award winners are selected based on their performance in the categories of community involvement and impact, health and wellness benefits, work-life programs and policies, and development and education programs.

“CARE Award winners are leaders in our community who are both inspirational and aspirational,” shares Stephanie Berkowitz, president and CEO at Northern Virginia Family Service. “They continue to show us through their actions and their values that our economy, our community and our bottom lines are strongest when we engage deeply both within our community and with our people.”

Awards will be presented at the 26th Annual CARE Awards Breakfast, held Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018, at the Sheraton Premiere Tysons Corner. Please join us as we celebrate the ways in which winning companies are engaging their employees and supporting our community through innovative corporate social responsibility tactics.
