Norcross, Georgia (PRWEB) February 04, 2014
Already the leading independent provider of automotive ownership benefits, EasyCare®, APCO’s exclusive brand, has become an established leader in employee engagement as well. For the third consecutive year, APCO has been recognized as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in the United States.
This prestigious award honors the nation’s top employers by recognizing the leadership and innovation they display, engaging their employees in ways that inspire workers to be more fully and passionately connected with the company and its customers.
“The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces understand that employee engagement is not just a buzz word, but that engaged employees provide businesses with a unique competitive advantage. Companies that focus on employee success have better engagement and alignment with business objectives and company values,” said Achievers CEO, Patrick D. Quirk. “These companies serve as role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success.”
Honorees are judged by a panel of experts who evaluate programs, policies and structure against eight important elements of employee engagement: leadership, communication, culture, reward and recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values and corporate social responsibility.
“Of the many areas there are in which a company can be awarded for excellence, Employee Engagement is the one we most value,” said Larry Dorfman, CEO of APCO/EasyCare. “In 1984, we found a quote in a print shop in Atlanta, and it has been a core value of ours ever since. The quote is simple: ‘A company succeeds not because it is big or it is long established, but because there are people in it who live it, sleep it, dream it and build future plans for it.’ The people who make up EasyCare are the only reason for our success.”
APCO will be honored with the other recipients of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Award at an awards gala April 2 in San Francisco.
