PPB Unveils The Greatest Companies To Work For In The Promotional Products Industry
We now know the Greatest Companies To Work For in the promotional products industry.
Vote tabulation has concluded for the 2022 competition, held annually by PPB magazine since 2011. This year, 47 companies made the cut, including distributors, suppliers and business services firms of all stripes and sizes, from micro businesses with less than 10 employees to national and multinational operations with workforces numbering over 1,000.
The competition is open to all PPAI member companies in the U.S. and Canada with at least five full-time employees. Nominations began in March and employees voted on their companies in April. Companies named to the list each averaged agreement from their employees on a set of 15 questions such as “I am paid fairly for the work I do,” “This company helps me learn and grow” and “I would highly recommend working at this company to others.”
“Although the survey questions of employees and the standards for qualification were the same, fewer companies met the bar this year—from 52 in 2021 down to 47 this year,” says Josh Ellis, publisher and editor-in-chief of PPB. “The entire world is grappling with the effects of worker disillusionment and disengagement coming out of the pandemic, and our industry is not immune.
“Still, we see dozens of companies in promotional products that are keeping their employees happy, inspired, challenged and thriving.”
Companies included in the competition had to be nominated by an employee. Survey topics included benefits, resources, culture, leadership and company direction. Companies were also required to meet a percentage of completed surveys. The survey results were then tabulated to reveal this year’s top companies.
