Suttle-Straus Earns Baker’s Dozen ‘Best Workplace in the Americas’ Designations
WAUNAKEE, WI—Nov. 19, 2012—For the 13th year in a row, Suttle-Straus has again been recognized as an industry leader. The Printing Industries of America awarded the company for its exemplary human resources (HR) practices in its 2012 Best Workplace in the Americas (BWA) program.
The printer was the recipient of the coveted “Best of the Best” designation—the top recognition in the program—for the eighth time. Begun to specifically honor companies that provide a superior work environment, BWA is judged by a panel of highly respected HR professionals with decades of experience. All of the winning companies actively show their employees that they care about their work environment, their personal goals and ambitions, as well as the needs of the company.
“It is an honor to again be recognized by the industry as a company that offers an outstanding workplace,” said John Berthelsen, president. “We work very hard to consistently create a desirable workplace for our team members.”
The BWA program allows companies to compare their human relations programs to other companies in the graphic arts industry. The categories for which companies were judged are: management practices; work environment; training and development opportunities; financial security; workplace health and safety; work-life balance; recognition and rewards; and health and wellness programs.
Michael Makin, president of Printing Industries of America, stated, “The Best of the Best winners routinely exhibit the highest commitment to success in many ways, but particularly though their employees. At this level, the competition is quite fierce and due to their long term commitment, Suttle-Straus has achieved an outstanding milestone. Congratulations to them.”
