There will be cake in the break room today. PPAI Media is ready to announce this year’s winners in the annual Greatest Companies To Work For competition.

Employee votes have been cast and counted for the contest, which has been held annually since 2011. Distributors, suppliers and business services companies representing the diverse scope of industry firms made the list. The winning companies range in size from as few as five employees on the low end to nearly 1,300 on the high side.

This year, 67 companies earned the honors, a substantial jump. Only 47 winners were announced for 2022. Of last year’s winners, 25 repeated the feat in 2023.

Sixty-seven is the most companies who have ever qualified for the Greatest Companies To Work For contest in a single year.“Now fully emerged from the pandemic, members tell us that these are some of the busiest times they’ve ever dealt with,” says Josh Ellis, PPAI Media publisher and editor-in-chief. “The winning businesses have each created cultures that embrace the challenge and pull together through it.

“Considering the larger workplace trends we’ve all read about in recent years, from the Great Resignation to quiet quitting, this is pretty remarkable for any company to achieve. The winners deserve a tremendous amount of respect.”

The competition, which began in March, is open to all PPAI member companies in the U.S. and Canada with at least five full-time employees. Firms must be nominated by an employee to compete. They submit a roster of employees, who then receive a questionnaire asking them to rate their employer on a range of topics, from “I am confident about my future at this company,” to “I have a good benefits package compared to other companies,” and “This company operates by strong values and ethics.”

A survey participation rate was established for each company based on its size, and companies were required to meet it for eligibility. The survey results were then tabulated to the same standards as in years past. Taken on average, the employees from winning companies either agreed or strongly agreed with the positive sentiments asked about their workplaces in the survey.

The upcoming July issue of PPAI Magazine will reveal what employees said about the winning companies and uncover details on their cultures, benefits and more.
