TCG VP of Employee Happiness Receives SmartCEO Executive Management Award

Judith TurnerTCG is pleased to announce that Judith A. Turner, vice president of employee happiness, has been given a SmartCEO Executive Management Award. The SmartCEO Executive Management Awards recognize leaders who uphold the highest ethics, lead collaboratively and creatively, and enhance and support the organization’s mission. Turner will be honored at an awards ceremony on March 9 at 6:00 pm at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

“Judith arguably has the hardest job in the company. Keeping our 130-and-growing employees happy and well-cared for is not easy in a low-unemployment environment where they could get another job tomorrow. The stakes are high. But her care and leadership has enabled the continuous growth of TCG and our employees, and she has maintained high morale among staff,” said TCG President Daniel Turner. 

As Vice President of Employee Happiness, Judith Turner and her team lead the way in keeping TCGers happy, engaged, and growing in their positions. In the four years Turner has been in this role, TCG has received 12 awards for its positive company culture. In a recent survey, 100% of TCGers reported that TCG has a great atmosphere, much of which can be attributed to Turner and her team. 

Turner joined the company in 1996 as the company’s first project manager, helping to develop a system for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In addition to her role in Employee Happiness, she leads the company’s CMMI and ISO compliance working groups. Yes, we know compliance is rarely a happy area of the company, but it works for us!
