CHICAGO, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Center for Companies That Care (www.companies-that-care.org) announces its 12th Honor Roll, comprised of employers ranging from 35 to more than 40,000 employees. Each has exemplary workplace practices and active community involvement. The Honor Roll includes privately held and publicly traded organizations, as well as not-for-profit employers from around the country and represents several industries.
"It's impossible to quantify the full impact of these outstanding employers," said Marci Koblenz, Center for Companies That Care's co-founder and president. "They are helping their more than 83,000 employees thrive with such workplace practices as transparent communication, appreciation for employees' work, ethical and respectful behavior, and fair compensation and benefits programs. We have heard from many how their employee engagement has increased from year to year. We know engaged employees produce better results and more satisfied customers. The volunteerism initiatives of the Honor Roll help communities prosper. They are role models."
