GPA has been awarded the prestigious designation of Best Workplace in the Americas for 2012 by the Printing Industries of America for their exemplary human resource practices.
“We are honored to be recognized with the Best Workplace Award. Our team is guided by an enduring set of values that we embrace within our organization on a daily basis. These values of teamwork, integrity, creativity and excellence help create our positive atmosphere. I am grateful to the outstanding group of professionals at GPA who have made this possible, and we look forward to continued success in the coming years,” said Tom Brooker, President of GPA.
Run by the Printing Industries of America (PIA), this award program uses over 300 metrics to compareGPA’s human relations programs and policies to other companies in the graphic arts industry. A panel of highly respected HR professionals with decades of experience in the graphic arts industry reviewed the submissions. All 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.
