The 2012 Optimas Award Winners

November 2, 2012
Comments (0)
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2012 Optimas Awards for exemplary achievements in workforce management. It has been a challenging time for many of our winners, which have found innovative ways to do more with less and meet the demands of a changing economy head on. For A to Z Machine Co., a manufacturer based in Wisconsin, the dearth of skilled workers led company leaders to partner with local high schools in promoting a youth apprenticeship program. At Sodexo Inc., where diversity is a top priority, the fact that most minorities access the Internet through their phones sparked the development of a job-search mobile phone app. Another Optimas winner, Etisalat Misr, Egypt's third-largest mobile network operator, managed to both cut costs and improve morale during a time of political and economic turmoil. This year's winner for General Excellence is ChildNet, a not-for-profit child-welfare agency in Florida that accomplished a dramatic turnaround in its culture and finances thanks to a series of initiatives to improve employee morale. We congratulate all the winners for their efforts and their bottom-line results, and we encourage companies with innovative workplace management strategies to enter next year's Optimas competition.
