TAYLOR, Mich., Nov. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlas Oil was named a Top Workplace by the Detroit Free Press for the fifth time on Sunday. The Top Workplace award is based solely on employee feedback with Atlas team members citing Atlas' collaborative and innovative culture as the key to this achievement.
"Our people are what drive our success," said Atlas Founder and Chairman Sam Simon. "Fostering a culture based on our core values is one of my top priorities as Atlas' founder, and I'm proud that our team lives out our values every day—creating a top workplace in the process."
Atlas added several programs to benefit team members over the last few years including a gym, an outdoor workspace, monthly potlucks and themed luncheons, a peer-nominated award program called the Sammy Awards with prizes that include a trip to Mexico, tuition reimbursement and much more. Team members are encouraged to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset by suggesting and leading initiatives that drive efficiency and innovation into the business.
Atlas' award-winning benefits program, competitive pay and focus on safety are all contributors to the company's success; however, Atlas President Bob Kenyon attributes the organization's record-breaking growth and innovative mentality to the culture its team members promote. In just 2018, Atlas has added approximately 200 team members to its locations across the country.
"We actively recruit individuals with strong values because we recognize that our people and our culture are what make us a great workplace," said Kenyon. "We believe in promoting from within and work to develop the career path of individuals who embody our core values."
"We are proud to be named a Top Workplace and know our best days are still ahead," said Kenyon. "As we continue to fuel innovation, we are dedicated to remaining the employer of choice for job seekers across the nation looking for a collaborative and forward-thinking company."
Atlas continues to grow and is actively seeking experienced commercial drivers and enthusiastic sales professionals. For more information on life at Atlas, its culture or career opportunities, visit www.atlasoil.com.
