Waunakee, Wisc. – Suttle-Straus has been awarded Best of the Best designation in the Best Workplaces in the Americas (BWA) program by the Printing Industries of America in recognition of exemplary human resources practices that create an outstanding workplace. In addition, Suttle-Straus received the Safety Shield designation in the inaugural year of the Safety Shield competition in recognition of the company’s safety record and practices.
For 18 years, Printing Industries of America’s BWA program has acted as an acknowledgment of printing industry excellence in human resources practices.
Being designated a Best of the Best and a Safety Shield company demonstrates the significant commitment that Suttle-Straus has made to its employees by investing in their work environment, their personal goals and ambitions, and recognizing that an exceptional workplace also serves the needs of the company.
