In January 2022, Magid Glove & Safety was recognized as a National Top Workplace by The Chicago Tribune and the certified B Corporation, Energage. Previously, Magid had also been named a 2021 Regional Top Workplace recipient.
On April 28, 2022, Top Workplaces announced its Culture Excellence Awards. These awards are an extension of the National Top Workplace Awards and recognized Magid for excelling at leadership, innovation and work-life flexibility.
To be considered as a Top Workplace and/or for the Culture Excellence Awards, organizations must ask their employees to fill out an employee engagement survey. Survey questions are asked about a variety of topics such as employee engagement, company culture, basic benefits, training and work-life balance. Energage then reviews these surveys and determines who is considered a Top Workplace.
According to Top Workplaces, “Over the past year, Energage has invited almost 42,000 organizations to compete for our national awards.” Additionally, “On average, fewer than 3% of eligible organizations earn a Top Workplaces designation, making these achievements clear differentiators among peers.”
In the Top Workplaces 2022 Culture Excellence Awards reveal video, Dr. Greg Barnett, Chief People Scientist at Energage stated, “Top Workplace Awards are more than about employer recognition. They recognize the incredibly hard work and dedication of employees, HR professionals, managers and leaders who believe in the importance of people-first cultures.”
“It’s great to see our leadership team recognized nationally,” said Magid CEO Greg Cohen. “Together we have created a culture where people feel engaged, appreciated and fulfilled. Knowing that our team members were the judges for this leadership award makes it even more compelling.”
Cohen continued, “Magid works hard to develop innovative safety products to improve the worker experience through increased comfort, productivity and protection. It’s gratifying that our team recognizes the important work we’re doing to help companies keep their workers safe.”
