Ripon, Wisc. – Businesses of all types and sizes consistently rank recruiting and retaining qualified employees as one of their key challenges. Human resources experts widely agree that the best way to maintain a successful workforce is by providing a superior work environment.
The Best Workplaces in the Americas (BWA) award has acknowledged printing industry excellence in human resources practices for the past 17 years. Judged by an anonymous panel of human relations professionals from the printing industry, the BWA awards show that companies of any size can excel in their commitment to employees.
Participants were evaluated on policies and benefits in the following areas: Communication & Culture, Employee Resources & Benefits, and Safety & Work Environment.
In addition, Ripon Printers was designated as one of the inaugural winners of the Safety Shield. Companies were evaluated on OSHA compliance and best safety practices for the printing industry.
“Creating a great workplace and a safety-first environment comes from within,” says Ripon Printers’ President and CEO Andy Lyke. I would like to thank not only our excellent HR leadership team, but also each employee who contributes to helping ensure a superior workplace.”
Ripon Printers is a multiple-year, prior winner of the BWA. This year's honorees will be celebrated at a luncheon awards presentation at the 2018 President's Conference to be held March 4-6 in San Antonio, Texas.
