BELOIT, Wis. — For the 10th time, building products distributor ABC Supply Co. Inc. has been honored with the Gallup Great Workplace Award. The award recognizes the top workplaces throughout the world in terms of employee engagement—which Gallup describes as “being emotionally invested in, and focused on, creating value for the organization”—something ABC Supply Chairman Diane Hendricks said she takes great pride in.
“When this company was started, it was with a dream to take care of our customers better than anyone else,” said Hendricks. “Our dedicated associates all over the country have made that dream a reality. They are the reason for ABC’s success.”
ABC Supply is one of 35 companies in the world to be recognized with the award in 2016 and one of just three companies to receive the award every year since it was created.
President and CEO Keith Rozolis shared that ABC Supply’s success is a result of being an associate-first company. ABC’s goal is to create opportunities for people to grow and succeed. “At ABC, if you work hard, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish. And we know that if we take care of our people, they will take care of our customers,” said Rozolis. “Our associates embrace this idea every day, and it shows in their passion and commitment to each other and to our customers. We are like a big family, committed to helping each other achieve our goals and dreams, and that is what makes ABC special.”
The Gallup Great Workplace Award is based on statistical research. Companies considered for the honor were evaluated by a panel of workplace experts who compared each company’s results to those of other companies all over the world. The award is based upon multiple criteria, including response rates, overall engagement levels and evidence of engagement’s impact on performance.
