American Packaging Corp. was again awarded the Best Workplace in the Americas designation for Best of the Best 2016, in recognition of its exemplary human resources practices that have created an outstanding workplace. 

The Best Workplace Awards were started by Printing Industries of America to honor printing companies that create a superior work environment for their employees. Winning companies demonstrate an overall positive work environment with the top designation, “Best of the Best,” recognizing employers who have established a superior, longtime commitment to the needs of its employees as well as the continual improvement of their business.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized for the ninth time as a superior workplace,” says Peter Schottland, president and CEO of American Packaging. “American Packaging attracts and retains the best people in the industry by providing a safe and reputable place to work, and having programs in place that focus on the employee’s overall well-being.” 

A panel of highly respected business professionals reviewed the submissions. Winning companies were chosen for regularly demonstrating a commitment to their employees to create a high-quality work environment, concern about personal and financial goals, and balancing these with the needs of the business. Applicants were judged on eight criteria, including management practices; work environment; training and development opportunities; financial security; workplace health and safety; work-life balance; recognition and rewards; and heal and wellness programs.

“Best of the Best winners routinely exhibit the highest commitment to success in many ways, but particularly through their employees,” says Michael Makin, president and CEO of Printing Industries of America. “Congratulations to American Packaging.”
