NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 24th year that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. “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 organizations address 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 are so pleased to once again be recognized as a top workplace in Northeast Ohio,” says Dalithia Smith, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at Oatey. “Oatey’s values are the foundation of our culture – thanks to each of our associates for living these values each day and making Oatey the great place to work that it is.”
“It’s no surprise that the 2022 NorthCoast 99 winning organizations are leading our region!” said ERC President Kelly Keefe. “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.”
