PITT OHIO, a leader in transportation and logistics services, recently announced it has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplace honor in 3 of its locations, including Pittsburgh, PA, Indianapolis, IN and Richmond, VA. 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.”
PITT OHIO made the list for the 7th year in row in Pittsburgh, PA and for the first time in both Indianapolis, IN and Richmond VA. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette announced its winners on August 20th. PITT OHIO received distinction in Indianapolis and Richmond earlier this year.
PITT OHIO quickly learned that happy employees result in happy customers. “If we expect to have happy customers, we have to look at the people who take care of our customer, the people who interact with them every day,” said PITT OHIO’s Chief Operating Officer, Jim Fields. “Those people are our front line employees. How they feel about our company is projected every time they speak to our customers, our suppliers, and companies with whom we have business relationships. Happy and engaged employees are the most effective at taking care of our customers in a pleasant way.”
PITT OHIO employs 3,200 across a network of 21 terminals and a corporate office. Employee satisfaction at every level and every location is essential to PITT OHIO’s People Driven pillar of their mission statement. “Our goal is to achieve the highest levels of performance excellence. We can only get there with the best people, those who are engaged and supportive of our mission,” Fields continued.
“A special thank you to all PITT OHIO employees who made these awards possible,” remarked Brian McGuire, PITT OHIO’s Vice President of Human Resources. “Our business is driven by our customers, employees and quality, and the Top Workplace Award recognizes our employees and how their contributions support our company mission. Our employees drive the success of PITT OHIO and make it the successful company that it is.”
