In a process that began February 8 and concluded March 30, 94 PPAI member companies competed for inclusion on PPB’s coveted list of the 60 Greatest Companies To Work For. Thirty-two distributors, 25 suppliers and three business services companies succeeded by receiving the highest scores based on results of a 15-question survey where employees rated their company in five areas: benefits, resources, culture, leadership and company direction.

The results were under wraps until the companies were notified with the good news earlier this week.

This is the eighth year for the program but the second under a new employee survey scoring structure introduced in 2017. To be considered, each company had to be nominated and then submit a list of full-time employees who then received the survey link. A minimum percentage of completed surveys was required to qualify each company and then the survey results were tabulated.

“It’s a pretty rigorous process to earn a spot on this list,” says PPB Editor Tina Berres Filipski, “and the companies that made it have a right to feel proud of their accomplishment—and we’re thrilled for them.” She adds that the list represents a variety of company types and sizes from micro businesses with nine or fewer employees to nearly a dozen large companies, some with hundreds of employees in multiple locations. Companies were required to have a minimum of five full-time employees to qualify.
