Nominations open for Best Workplace in the Americas

The Best Workplace in the Americas program, presented by the Printing Industries of America (PIA), is now accepting nominations.

The program is open to those who work for graphics communications, printing companies, and their suppliers in the United States and Canada. Nominees will be judged on a number of different criteria, such as management practices, financial security, health and wellness programs, training and development opportunities, work environment, work-life balance, rewards, and health and safety in the workplace. The submission form asks questions under each category to help the judges assess the nominees and come to a conclusion on the most deserving entry.

The winning company will be allowed to display the program's logo on its website and promotional materials, and will also receive a plaque. Quotes from past winners on the PIA website suggest that the title has helped some of them to gain business and attract new employees.

Applications for the Best Workplace in the America's program must be submitted by email and received before September 30. There are various fees depending on the size of the nominated company and whether or not it is a member of the PIA. Fees start at $75 and go up to $1,100 for members, and range from $150 to $2,200 for non-members.

To learn more about the program, call 571-335-4691 or visit the PIA website, which also offers the opportunity to purchase books about the business practices of successful companies from previous years’ competitions.
