Arizona State University has earned the WorldatWork 2017 Seal of Distinction. This year, the university was among 160 companies from 35 states, the District of Columbia and four Canadian provinces to be recognized with the 2017 Seal of Distinction.

“We congratulate all of the recipients of the 2017 Seal of Distinction. This year, we saw the highest number of applicants since the Seal of Distinction was created,” said Anne C. Ruddy, president and CEO of WorldatWork in a press release. "I’m confident that this means an increasing number of companies are recognizing the importance of a workplace environment that benefits both the employer and employee.”
