Chicago, IL – For the fifth straight year, GPA has been awarded the prestigious designation of Best Workplace in the Americas for 2010 by the Printing Industries of America/Graphic Arts Technical Foundation for their exemplary human resource practices.
"Genuine trust and care are the cornerstones of our culture at GPA, and I'm proud to be part of an environment where people truly enjoy helping each other grow and succeed in all that they do. We are very fortunate to work with such an outstanding group of professionals throughout our organization who make up GPA, and we appreciate the recognition of our collective effort which has resulted in this achievement," said Tom Brooker, President of GPA.
