CJK Group, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Best Workplace and Safety Shield designation in the 2020 Best Workplace in the Americas (BWA) awards competition. The BWA awards, presented by Printing Industries of America (PIA), are awarded annually to only those companies meeting rigorous standards in human resources practices and that create the best environments for their employees.
For nearly 20 years, the Best Workplace in the Americas program has acted as an acknowledgment of printing industry excellence in human resources practices. A panel of printing-industry HR professionals evaluated applicants in three categories: Communications & Culture, Employee Resources & Benefits, and Safety & Work Environment. Companies that applied for a Safety Shield designation were evaluated based on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance standards and best practices in environmental, health, and safety (EHS) areas.
“The receipt of these two awards marks the third year in a row that the companies of CJK Group have been honored with the Best Workplace award, and the second straight year for the Safety Shield designation.” stated Chris Kurtzman, CEO of CJK Group, Inc. “Being designated a BWA and Safety Shield company demonstrates the significant commitment that CJK Group continues to make to its employees by investing in them as well as in their work environment.”
“CJK Group is one of the premier companies in the printing industry for employee experiences,” said Adriane Harrison, vice president of Human Relations at PIA. “This award is a testament to their leadership in developing an ‘employer of choice’ culture.”
Michael F. Makin, president and CEO of PIA, agrees. “The Best Workplace in the Americas award winners stand among the most distinguished printing industry leaders by human resources standards. Congratulations to CJK Group for its outstanding achievement in human resources excellence.”
