Chicago, IL (November 28, 2008) – For the third straight year, 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 ninth 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.
“At GPA, we strive for continuous improvement and excellence in all we do. I believe this award captures many of the values GPA stands for – especially the commitment we have to our employees,” said Heather Jenkins, SPHR, Human Resources Manager for GPA.
