Best Workplace in the Americas

 

Printers across the country consistently rank recruiting and retaining qualified employees as one of their key challenges. Although the problem may seem daunting the answer is really very simple -- maintain a successful workforce by providing them a superior work environment.

 

Printing Industries of America has redeveloped the 2017 Best Workplace in the Americas (BWA) program to streamline the application process and focus Human Relations benchmarking categories to promote companies embracing the most sought-after qualities for today's workforce:

  • Communication & Culture
  • Employee Resources & Benefits
  • Safety & Work Environment

Safety Shield

Top companies know the importance of focusing on environmental, health, and safety areas in the workplace. The Safety Shield designation is open to 2017 BWA participants for a nominal additional registration fee. You must enter the BWAs to participate in the Safety Shield program.

The Safety Shield designation offers:

  • A cost-effective assessment of your safety programs against OSHA standards based on top violations
  • Ability to quickly and easily denote your dedication to safety when hiring and retaining talent
  • A plaque commemorating your achievement as a Safety Shield recipient
