Highlighting excellence and achievement

We’re big on the idea that individual contributions matter to the organization. In fact, individual contributions have become the cornerstone of Ashland’s highest level of employee recognition – the annual Chairman’s Awards recognition program.

Each year, the Chairman's Awards program recognizes individuals who are making great things happen across the company in:

  • Innovation
  • Environmental, Health and Safety
  • Business Excellence
  • Leadership
  • Community Enrichment

A single winner is selected for each category and recognized with personal testimonials on their selection criteria and a custom-designed sculpture. On top of that, winners for the Chairman's Awards for Innovation; Environmental, Health and Safety; Business Excellence; and Leadership receive cash awards of $10,000. The Chairman's Award winner for Community Enrichment receives a $5,000 cash award and designates a $5,000 gift from Ashland to a charity of their choice.
