SSR Named to Nashville’s Mayor’s Workplace Challenge Hall of Fame

Firm also earns three seals of distinction

Smith Seckman Reid, Inc. (SSR), a leader among engineering firms in designing, consulting, and commissioning projects, is honored to be inducted into the Mayor’s Workplace Challenge Hall of Fame. As a participant in the challenge since it started in 2012, SSR has emphasized a collective commitment to making a difference in our workplace and community. SSR encourages an active and healthy workplace atmosphere, reducing the organization’s impact on the environment, and taking an active role in promoting volunteer service throughout Nashville and the surrounding communities.

In addition to being named to the Hall of Fame, SSR also received seals in the three individual areas that the challenge tracks: healthy (Diamond seal), green (Gold seal), and involved in the community (Gold seal).

In 2012, Nashville Mayor Karl Dean created the Mayor’s Workplace Challenge to encourage and recognize places of work to excel in three areas that contribute to a high quality of life.  It is the first three-tiered challenge of its kind in the country, and ten other cities are replicating this initiative in their own communities. The 2014-2015 round of the Mayor’s Workplace Challenge concluded in April with total participation of over 235 workplaces, representing more than 105,000 employees in Nashville.
