Mobile, Alabama (PRWEB) June 25, 2012
ASF Logistics today announced that the Mobile, Alabama-based company has been recognized as one of the 2012 “Best Companies to Work for in Alabama” in the small business category. Best Companies to Work for in Alabama is an annual program run by Business Alabama Magazine in conjunction with Best Companies Group.
ASF Logistics President Steven Chard stated, “We are proud and excited to be recognized among this year’s Best Companies to Work for in Alabama. At ASF Logistics, we recognize that our employees are our most important asset, and we continually strive to provide a high quality working environment to attract and retain the best team members. We’ve been able to create a cohesive culture that is characterized by high levels of employee engagement. This is true not just in our Mobile, Alabama headquarters, but also throughout our branch locations in Savannah, Charlotte and New Orleans.”
A two-part survey process was used to determine the 2012 Best Companies to Work for in Alabama. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. The actual rankings will be published in the August 2012 issue of Business Alabama and the ranked companies will be recognized at a special awards ceremony.
The Best Companies to Work for in Alabama awards program started in 2010 and is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Alabama, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses.
