OHIO WILLOW WOOD NAMED TOP PLACE TO WORK
Ohio Willow Wood was recognized as one of the top 50 workplaces in the central Ohio region by Columbus Business First newspaper. The award was presented November 10 and accepted by a team of Ohio Willow Wood representatives.
The newspaper’s annual ‘Best Places to Work’ survey focuses on employee moral, engagement, and retention for micro, small, medium and large companies. Medium-sized companies were defined as having 100-499 employees. Ohio Willow Wood was ranked as one of the top 10 medium-sized companies to work for in the region.
The selection process began in the late summer after Ohio Willow Wood was nominated for the award. Employees were asked to complete an online survey conducted by a third-party firm on behalf of the newspaper. The survey focused on workplace issues such as internal communications, employee benefits and perks, trust in company leadership, and reliability and unity of department staffs.
Eleven Ohio Willow Wood employees attended the awards luncheon held November 10 at the Hyatt Regency in Columbus, Ohio. With over 160 employees, the company provides support and jobs in various disciplines for several surrounding communities. Special benefits extended by the company that were noted include a complete wellness program, onsite fitness center and biometric screenings, employee recognition programs, and personal development opportunities.
