Garland Named A Northeast Ohio Top Workplace For Fifth Year In A Row
Cleveland, OH - For the fifth consecutive year, The Garland Company has been awarded the 2016 Top Workplace honor by The Plain Dealer. This year, Garland placed 5th in the Small Companies category.
This year’s announcement, the 7th annual ranking from The Plain Dealer, ranked 100 companies in Northeast Ohio. Garland is proud to be recognized among their peers for one of the company's greatest priorities and most valuable assets – its people.
“Even as we have grown over the past 120 years, we have been able to maintain - and even improve - our culture of a hardworking family. I think a large part of that is our employee-ownership program, which makes each and every one of our employees an invested stakeholder in our success,” said Garland’s VP & General Manager, Scott Craft.
The Top Workplace list is based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day - the employees.”
