Printing Industries of America proudly announces the recipients of the 2014 Best Workplace in the Americas Awards. A total of 28 graphic arts companies, both members through Printing Industries of America Affiliate Organizations and non-members, were selected by a committee of distinguished HR experts from within the industry. The program is designed to recognize graphic arts companies for outstanding human relations efforts which contribute to a successful workplace.
“Since 2000, the Best Workplace program has recognized industry leaders throughout the U.S. and Canada from small, medium, and large firms in the graphic arts industry for their outstanding human relations practices. While this year we felt that every company that entered the competition had HR programs worthy of great pride, the Best Workplace program recognizes outstanding accomplishment,” said Jim Kyger, Assistant. Vice President of Human Relations for Printing Industries. “The Best Workplace program stands out as one of the most stringent HR awards programs available in any industry because it analyzes key HR metrics and program documents that firms submit with their entry. Too many programs today just rely on an employee survey as the basis for their judging.”
Entries are judged on the following criteria: management practices, work environment, training and development, recognition and rewards, workplace health and safety, health and wellness, financial security, and work-life balance.
