Hammer Pkg. Named Best Workplace in the Americas
ROCHESTER, NY—January 15, 2013—Hammer Packaging has been awarded the designation, Best Workplace in the Americas 2012, for their exemplary human resources practices. Begun to specifically honor printing companies that provide a superior work environment, the Best Workplace in the Americas program was created in 2000.
A panel of highly respected HR professionals with decades of experience in the graphic arts industry reviewed the submissions. All of the winning companies actively show their employees that they care about their work environment, their personal goals and ambitions, as well as the needs of the company. Applicants were judged on eight criteria: Management Practices; Work Environment; Training and Development Opportunities; Financial Security; Workplace Health and Safety; Work-Life Balance; Recognition and Rewards; and Health and Wellness Programs.
“This distinction is a reflection of the special people that make up this company and its culture as defined by the values we share: Integrity, Respect, Trust, Passion, Credibility and Continuous Improvement. It’s an honor to be recognized by the industry as a company that offers a superior workplace,” said James E. Hammer, president and CEO.
Michael Makin, president and CEO of Printing Industries of America, agrees. “Best Workplace in the Americas winners routinely recognize that success is generated in many ways, and importantly, through their employees. Congratulations to Hammer Packaging.”
