For the ninth time, building products distributor ABC Supply Co. Inc. has been honored with the Gallup Great Workplace Award, which recognizes the best-performing workplaces worldwide. The company is one of only 40 in the world to receive the 2015 award. It also is one of only three nine-time winners, having received the honor every year since its inception.
The award was created to recognize organizations with the highest levels of associate engagement—organizations described by Gallup as having associates who “are involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work and workplace.” That focus makes receiving the award a tremendous source of pride for ABC Supply, according to Chairman and Co-founder Diane Hendricks and CEO and President Keith Rozolis.
“Our people are what make ABC Supply special,” Hendricks said. “They are the very best in our industry. They embrace our core values and live them in their work and personal lives. They are passionate about providing exceptional customer service and strive every day to do something better than they did the day before.”
Rozolis added, “Our people are responsible for all of our accomplishments. We will continue to put them first—listening to and learning from them, giving them the tools they need to succeed, giving them the freedom to get the job done, and providing them with opportunities to grow.”
The Gallup Great Workplace Award is based on rigorous statistical research. Companies considered for the honor were evaluated by a panel of workplace experts who compared each company’s results to those of other companies all over the world. The award is based upon multiple criteria, including response rates, overall engagement levels and evidence of engagement’s impact on performance.
