American Packaging Corporation has been awarded the Best Workplace in the Americas designation, Best of the Best 2011, for their exemplary human resources practices. The Best Workplace award was originally created to specifically honor printing companies that provide an overall positive work environment with the top designation of “Best of the Best” recognizing employers who have established a superior, long time commitment to the needs of its employees as well as the continual improvement of their business.
Winning companies demonstrate their responsibility to provide a safe work environment, encourage personal goals and ambitions, promote wellness and life balance, as well as meet the objectives of the company. Applicants were judged on eight criteria: Management Practices; Work Environment; Training and Development Opportunities; Financial Security; Workplace Health and Safety; Work-Life Balance; Recognition and Rewards; and Health and Wellness Programs.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the industry as a company that provides its employees with a creditable place to work,” said Peter B. Schottland, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The company’s dedication to our employees’ overall well-being allows us to attract and retain the best people in the industry.”
Michael Makin, president and CEO of PIA/GATF, agrees. “Best of the Best winners routinely exhibit the highest commitment to success in many ways, but particularly through their employees. Congratulations to American Packaging.”
