Earth Friendly Products®, the maker of ECOS™ environmentally friendly cleaning products, has been awarded “Employer of the Year” by the ISSA Hygieia Network. Presented at the ISSA/INTERCLEAN® North America Trade Show, running September 11–14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the award recognizes the company in the cleaning industry that best promotes women’s interests in its organization.
The ISSA Hygieia Network is the first women’s network for the global cleaning community. Established to develop female professionals within the cleaning industry, the network is named for Hygieia, the Greek goddess of health and cleanliness. The Hygieia Network selected Earth Friendly Products® for the award because of its long-standing commitment to supporting, mentoring, and promoting women within its organization. The Greek connection is particularly appropriate for the family-owned and –operated company, which was founded by a Greek immigrant in 1967. “As the head of a woman-owned company, this award is very meaningful to me and a great honor for our company,” explains Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks, Earth Friendly Products® President and CEO. “I’m proud to sit at the helm of a company that has over 50% of our C-suite and executive positions held by women.”
