In what seems like a constant slew of awards and recognition, the latest in Hissho Sushi news is that the company has been given the 2017 Corporate Culture Award by Charlotte SmartCEO, honoring companies that foster a creative, collaborative workplace culture to enhance performances and give a competitive advantage.
“The Corporate Culture Awards celebrate 50 companies in Greater Charlotte that have successfully championed a positive, productive and performance-driven culture, and have worked with their employees to develop successful cultural practices,” shared Melissa Sawyer, Market Director of SmartCEO.
Sawyer reports that each winner will be profiled in SmartCEO magazine, and celebrated at a high-energy awards ceremony on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at CenterStage @ NoDa.
According to the Charlotte SmartCEO website, Corporate Culture Awards winners are those who have championed for a positive, productive culture in their organization, and work with employees to develop successful cultural practices. The final roster of winners is chosen by an independent committee of local business leaders.
“Winners realize that running a company is more than head count and the bottom line,” added Maime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO. “It’s about creating a place where creativity, energy and ideas are cultivated. Through this they are able to not only enhance performance and sustain their companies’ competitive advantages, but also enrich the lives of those they employ and inspire them to make a greater impact on the world.”
Hissho explained in a statement that it is passionate about its culture, adhering to what it calls its “11 Core Values.” Hissho Sushi, headquartered in Charlotte NC, now has over 975 locations in 41 states, following CEO Philip Maung, coming to the United States from Myanmar in 1989 with only $13 in his pocket.
