Vacaville's largest private employer has been recognized as providing one of the best workplaces in the region.
Alza Corporation's North American Global Pharmaceutical Supply Group is the recipient of the 2006 Sacramento Workplace Excellence Leader Award.
The company - which employs 1,200 workers in its North Vacaville manufacturing facility - was cited for having outstanding benefits and training programs, and for promoting good health, safety, advancement, diversity and security.
"When we were informed we were a finalist leading up to this event, a great deal of enthusiasm rippled through the entire organization," said Joe Nuzzolese, vice president of manufacturing for Alza in Vacaville. "The award is a great recognition of all our associates hard work and dedication to transform our workplace culture and make the Vacaville site a great place to come to work every day."
Now in its fourth year, the awards program is presented by the Sacramento Area Human Resource Association. It recognizes organizations in the Sacramento region that it considers "extraordinary employers" that offer an "extraordinary workplace." Vacaville's unit of Alza Corp. earned the distinction in the for-profit category.
The organization comprises 800 human resource professionals representing private and public sector employers.
"I am excited the company's focus on work culture, diversity, employee development, and communications are the reasons we were selected and make it a great place to work," said Pam Englund, associate director of human resources in Vacaville.
