CLEVELAND, Sept. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Last evening, GBX Group LLC was recognized as a first time NorthCoast 99 winner by ERC as one of 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces. This annual recognition program, now in its 23rd year, honors Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. Hundreds of companies participated in a rigorous application process that included more than 7,000 individual employee surveys.
"ERC's exhaustive and comprehensive submission process further validates this recognition and reflects upon what we have worked hard to develop at GBX - our culture through people. Company culture can't be forced, it must be built over time and all team members are instrumental in bringing it to life," said Catherine Zelenkofske, GBX's Director of People Operations.
Drew Sparacia, GBX's CEO and Founder, noted "We operate within the framework of guidelines, not rules, which promotes creativity and innovation amongst the team and lets everyone be the best version of themselves. It is what separates GBX in attracting and retaining top talent."
All NorthCoast 99 applicants participated in a comprehensive application process that asked for detailed information on how organizations address top-performer attraction, development, and retention in many areas. These areas included policies and benefits; onboarding; employee well-being; employee development; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The 2021 NorthCoast 99 Awards program is sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield; CareerCurve; Cleveland Magazine; ERChealth; Gino's Awards; Impact Architects; Maloney + Novotny; Meyers, Roman, Friedberg & Lewis; Oswald Companies; Staffing Solutions Enterprises; UKG; and Wayfind Creative.
