MCLEAN, Va., and YARMOUTH, Maine—The Monitoring Association (TMA) and Security Systems News (SSN) have announced that Atlanta-based Telguard is the winner of the second annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Leadership Award.

TMA President Steve Butkovich and Security Systems News Editor Cory Harris presented the 2023 TMA/SSN Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Award to Telguard President George Brody and Senior Director of Technical Service Daniel Rosales during the recent 2023 Annual Meeting in Maui, Hawaii.

DEI Leadership AwardThe award was established in 2021 to raise industry awareness of the importance and value of being a diverse and inclusive industry.

“Inclusion and diversity are not just buzzwords for us; they are the cornerstones of the corporate culture at Telguard,” Brody said. “This recognition isn’t just a testament to our efforts, but to our collective commitment towards creating a workplace where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered. This achievement is a reflection of the hard work of every team member, the leadership’s unwavering commitment, and the spirit of collaboration that defines our organization. 

“We believe that diverse perspectives and backgrounds fuel innovation, enhance creativity, and drive better business outcomes. It’s not about meeting quotas; it’s about embracing differences and harnessing the unique strengths each individual brings to the table.”

Each nominee was asked to deploy the TMA/SSN DEI Employee Assessment Survey to their employees. The web-based assessment tool consists of approximately 40 questions covering eight facets of DEI practice within an organization. Each nominee was also required to submit one to four “Shared Success Examples” of how their organization implements DEI-related activities.

“Congratulations to Telguard on winning the second annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Leadership Award," Harris noted. “We were very impressed with what Telguard is doing to encourage DEI in the workplace, from the hiring process to the encouragement of sharing ideas and perspectives, to the various programs and committees that the company's Diversity and Inclusion Council has established to foster an inclusive and diverse workforce. Kudos to the Telguard team!”
