Fredonia, WI, April 28, 2016 – Guy and O’Neill Inc., a private label and contract manufacturer, has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. 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. “Attracting high quality employees is key to our growth, which is why we work so hard to cultivate a culture that people want to be a part of.” Jennifer Engert, HR Manager, added “This honor is a reflection of every Guy and O’Neill employee who played a part in creating an environment that fosters caring, innovation, partnership and prioritizing our customers’ needs.”
