Press release from the issuing company
Chicago, IL – For the fourth straight year, GPA has been awarded the
prestigious designation of Best Workplace in the Americas for their
exemplary human resource practices. This year they have the added
distinction of being named in the Best of the Best category, which is the
highest honor a company can obtain in the program.
Run by the Printing Industries of America (PIA), this award program uses
over 300 metrics to compare GPA'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.
"Each year we obtain the Best Workplace Award is an exciting one. Being
named Best of the Best this year speaks to our efforts to continuously
improve our company. The process is not a sprint to the finish line; it's a
continual work in progress," said Heather Jenkins, SPHR, Human Resources
Manager for GPA.
