Westlake, Ohio (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Equity Trust Company is proud to be recognized as one of Northeast Ohio’s best places to work with the NorthCoast 99 designation.
“We’re thrilled to receive the North Coast 99 designation,” says Elizabeth Ahmed, Vice President of Human Resources at Equity Trust. “The honor confirms what we already knew: Equity Trust employees receive all the benefits and culture of working for a family-owned company combined with the opportunities that exist at larger corporations. Recent enhancements, as well as ongoing employee benefits, help make Equity Trust a place where employees want to thrive.”
In 2013, Equity Trust moved more than 400 employees to a new, state-of-the-art facility in Westlake, which includes several on-site amenities including a café with a focus on quality healthy food, a fitness center, free massages, dry-cleaning pickup service, and more. The company culture also fosters an engaging, motivating work atmosphere with a competitive benefits package and plenty of opportunities for professional growth as well as after-work volunteer and social activities.
This is the 16th year for the NorthCoast 99 award, which recognizes organizations for their ability to maintain great workplaces that support the attraction, retention, and motivation of top performers. The program was developed and is presented by ERC (http://www.yourerc.com/). “NorthCoast 99 organizations have re-defined the Northeast Ohio workplace in good and tough times. They have crafted a strategy and put initiatives in place designed to compete locally, nationally and globally through top performer attraction and retention. This strategy is smart and in the long run will pay incredible dividends,” says Pat Perry, ERC’s president.
This year’s NorthCoast 99 winners will be honored at a recognition dinner September 10, at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights. This is the second time Equity Trust has received the award – the first was in 2010.
