FREDONIA, Wisc., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Guy and O'Neill Inc., a private label and contract manufacturer, has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This is the second year in a row the company has been bestowed the award as it was also recognized as a top workplace in 2016. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits," says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."
"We're proud to be recognized as one of the top workplaces in Milwaukee," said Ralph Patitucci, CEO and Chairman, Guy and O'Neill Inc. "It is truly an honor to be recognized as a top workplace for the second year in a row by our employees. We work so hard to cultivate a culture that people want to be a part of. I'm so proud of all our Guy & O'Neill employees, who we truly consider to be family. They are the ones that make Guy & O'Neill a great place to work and the culture so special." Jennifer Engert, HR Manager, added, "I'm so excited that Guy & O'Neill was recognized for this honor again. Guy & O'Neill is a great place to work and I'm so thankful to all our employees. They are the ones that make it happen and this award is a reflection of the can-do spirit and attitude they bring to work every day."
