A Culture of Respect

ARUP Laboratories is a standout when it comes to the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards. As a multi-year winner from Utah at the state level and a recipient of the American Psychological Association's National Award and a Best Practices Honor, few organizations can boast as successful a record. So, what are they doing right?

Well, the award-winning benefits package certainly helps, but I'd argue that the key lies in the company's culture. ARUP Laboratories prides itself on having established and sustained a work environment that supports family, health and education and promotes integrity, open communication, mutual respect, compassion, creativity and innovation. The result is a balanced workplace that not only promotes the health and well-being of employees and their families, but also enhances the quality of services ARUP provides its customers.

Here's the ARUP highlight reel from our 2006 awards ceremony.
