Of our 44 total winners, we are very proud to have 34 Platinum winners, 8 Gold winners, and 2 Bronze winners. We are seeing an increase in Platinum winners each year, which demonstrates not only the commitment of all of these companies but also the value this program is providing. Plus, we are excited to welcome six first-time applicants to this year’s program. Thank you all for your ongoing commitment to keep your teams safe.”
