Workscape Announces 2009 Winner of HR Innovator of the Year Award

Swift Transportation's LaVawn McCullough Recognized for Best in Class HR Initiative

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - Workscape, Inc., a leading provider of integrated HR solutions and services, today announced the winner of the first Workscape HR Innovator of the Year Award. LaVawn McCullough, director of Human Resources Information Systems and Compensation at Swift Transportation, has been named 2009 Innovator of the Year.

The award honors a Workscape client who has implemented innovative human resource (HR) programs, practices or policies during the previous year. It recognizes excellence in HR management, spotlighting creative and innovative HR initiatives that contribute significantly to the achievement of business goals and objectives.

"LaVawn's efforts have completely transformed the compensation and performance management processes at Swift plus optimized the employee benefits process. Her vision and demonstrated leadership in deploying an employee-centric approach to HR are what made her our choice for Innovator of the Year," commented Tony Marzulli, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer at Workscape.

McCullough is being recognized for identifying and implementing a comprehensive suite of solutions that encompass performance management, compensation planning and benefits administration. She recognized the immediate impact that bridging compensation and performance would bring and sought to find a partner that could easily meet the needs of Swift's geographically diverse, largely mobile workforce of nearly 20,000 employees. After first implementing Workscape's compensation planning solution, McCullough next integrated Performance Manager from Workscape's talent management suite, easily shaping the look and feel to best serve Swift's unique employee population. She was then instrumental in expanding the deployment to include Workscape's outsourced benefits administration solution with online benefits enrollment and a 24x7 onshore support center for employees.

"LaVawn's award is well-earned. She has made an indelible impression of innovation and success throughout Swift and contributed to our mission to be the best in class transportation service provider," commented Rachel Monti, vice president, Human Resources, Swift Transportation. "Because of her collaboration with Workscape, our managers and employees are now engaged in goal setting, measurement and performance evaluation in meaningful ways we have never seen before."
