SOLON, Ohio (September 8, 2014) – The Employers Resource Council (ERC) has awarded Swagelok Company its fifth consecutive NorthCoast 99 honor for excellence in attracting, retaining, and motivating top performers in Northeast Ohio.
“To be recognized by ERC for the fifth year in a row speaks to the strength of our company’s associates and their high caliber performance each and every day,” said Arthur F. Anton, president and CEO, Swagelok Company.
Since 1999, hundreds of companies have applied for the annual NorthCoast 99 award. The program assesses companies in areas such as compensation, benefits, rewards, training and development, leadership, and culture. Notable Swagelok activities in these areas include:
- A comprehensive “Total Rewards” package, including an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP);
- A Career Development Program for recent graduates in engineering and supply chain studies;
- A robust commitment to training and development, spanning formal classroom and online training and mentoring; and
- Optional programs like Livin’ Lean wellness challenges and tuition reimbursement.
