The Garland Company, a leading manufacturer of high-performance roofing and building envelope solutions for commercial, industrial, and institutional markets, has been named a 2022 NorthCoast 99 award winner by ERC, the Employers Resource Council. The NorthCoast 99 award honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the twenty-third consecutive time that The Garland Company has received the prestigious NorthCoast 99 award.
“More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research program that ERC established to help make our region a long-term destination of choice for companies and high-performing individuals,” said Samantha Marx, ERC’s Director of Strategic Projects, who oversees the NorthCoast 99 program. “The data from this program helps employers adapt their policies and practices to attract and retain top-notch talent.”
NorthCoast 99 winners participated in a rigorous application process that asked for detailed information on how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development, and retention in the areas of organizational strategy, policies, and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
“We pride ourselves on consistent excellence – we’ve been in Cleveland since 1895, in our current manufacturing location since 1919, and now, honored by 23 straight years of recognition as a NorthCoast 99 winner,” said Matt McDermott, President of Garland’s US Roofing Division. “What makes this year’s NorthCoast 99 even more special is that it comes during a period of unprecedented change in the American workplace. While much is changing, we feel that a strong culture and a shared mission, reinforced by our employee ownership, are values that employees will continue to embrace, and this award reinforces that belief.”
“It’s no surprise that the 2022 NorthCoast 99 winning organizations are leading our region! These outstanding companies prioritize the employee experience, offering attractive benefits and innovative policies that today’s workforce demands. We’re thrilled to recognize the winning companies and look forward to sharing their success stories,” said ERC President Kelly Keefe.
