2015 Best Workplace in the Americas Awards Announced

Warrendale, Pennsylvania, November 17, 2015 – Printing Industries of America (PIA) proudly announces the recipients of the 2015 Best Workplace in the Americas Awards. A total of 32 graphic arts companies were selected by a committee of distinguished HR experts from within the industry. A total of 10 companies received the coveted designation “Best of the Best,” while 22 earned “Best Workplace” honors. The program is designed to recognize graphic arts companies for their outstanding human relations efforts which contribute to a successful workplace.

“Since 2000, the Best Workplace program has recognized industry leaders throughout the U.S. and Canada from small, medium, and large firms in the graphic arts industry for their outstanding human relations practices. While this year we felt that every company that entered the competition had HR programs worthy of great pride, the Best Workplace program recognizes outstanding accomplishment,” said Jim Kyger, assistant vice president, Human Relations, for PIA. “The Best Workplace program stands out as one of the most stringent HR awards programs available in any industry because it analyzes key HR metrics and program documents that firms submit with their entry.” 

Entries are judged on the following criteria: management practices, work environment, training and development, recognition and rewards, workplace health and safety, health and wellness, financial security, and work-life balance.
