Press release from the issuing company
November 2007 - Chicago, IL - For the second year in a row, GPA has been awarded the prestigious designation Best Workplace in the Americas for their exemplary human resource practices. Created specifically to honor printing companies that provide a superior work environment, this year marks the eighth year of the Best Workplace in the Americas program.
This award is designed 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. Only companies who "do the right thing by doing things right" are chosen as the best.
According to Jim Kyger of PIA/GATF, "This program is a way to give employers doing innovative, yet cost-effective HR programs, the recognition they deserve."
"I am extremely proud that GPA has been named as a Best Workplace two years in a row. It lends credence to the fact that at GPA, our employees are our most valuable asset - it-s who we are as a company," said Mike Ratcliff, President of GPA.
