Fredonia, WI – Guy and O’Neill Inc., a private label and contract manufacturer, has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This is the third year in a row the company has been bestowed the award as it was also recognized as a top workplace in 2016 and 2017. 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. 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 and honored to be recognized as one of the top workplaces in Milwaukee for the third year in a row,” said Tom Misgen, CEO and President, Guy and O’Neill Inc. “This award is a reflection of our talented team members who make Guy & O’Neill such a great place to work. They are the ones who make our culture special and who make it enjoyable to come to work every day. Together we work hard and go the extra mile to take care of our customers and we have fun doing it.” Jennifer Engert, HR Manager, added “It’s exciting to be recognized for this honor again. The culture at Guy & O’Neill is special and I’m proud to be a part of it. I’m especially thankful to all our employees.  They are the ones that make Guy & O’Neill a great company to work for and this award is a reflection of their can-do spirit they bring to work every day.
