Abt Electronics Named a 2013 National Top Workplace
CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--
Abt Electronics (News - Alert) today announced that it has been named one of America's
Top Workplaces by WorkplaceDynamics. Abt was ranked #20 nationwide among
872 organizations with more than 1,000 employees that participated in
regional top workplaces programs.
Top Workplaces list was determined solely by feedback gathered
through an objective employee
survey. The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, the
leading on-demand employee survey provider, in conjunction with 30
leading regional newspapers. Abt participated in Chicago Tribune's Top
Workplaces 2012 program.
The survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. The
survey data showed that employees most want to work at companies with
high levels of organizational
health. Companies that set a clear direction for their future;
execute well; and bring real meaning to work are te healthiest.
Jon Abt (News - Alert), co-president of Abt Electronics stated, "We were thrilled when
we received the regional recognition and now to be acknowledged on a
national level is another great honor. At Abt we strive to make sure
every one of our 1,100 employees is satisfied with their job and we
value everyone's role within the company. We reward employees with a
variety of Bonus Programs based on performance along with offering other
benefits such as an impressive, free on-site gym and a generous
paid-time off program. We feel strongly that our employee satisfaction
has contributed to the store's growth and success over the last 77
