English Works Certificate of Recognition
The English Works Certificate of Recognition is a cornerstone of the Campaign, serving to raise the visibility of the need for English language classes and critical role that businesses and unions play in developing the Commonwealth’s workforce. The Certificate recognizes businesses and joint labor-management programs that support English language classes for immigrants in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Certificates are awarded to private, public and non-profit employers and joint labor-management programs. Other key labor, community, and educational organizations who, in partnership with awardees, have demonstrated leadership in the provision of ESOL services are also recognized. The Campaign has held successful Recognition events with Lt. Governor Timothy Murray, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone (see winners here).
Awardees are encouraged to make their employees and members, customers, and industry peers aware of their leadership and good civic and corporate citizenship, as demonstrated by their commitment to the immigrant workforce and related successful business practices.
