For the fourth year in a row, JH Specialty, Inc., a full-service marketing and communications firm based in Fort Wayne, has been included in Counselor Magazine's list of the "Best Places to Work." JH Specialty ranked number 15 out of 85 U.S. companies from the advertising specialty industry that were recognized by the magazine, known as the "voice" of the promotional products industry.
A total of more than 4,000 employees answered an in-depth survey conducted by outside research firm Quantum Workplace. Counselor Editor Andy Cohen said three themes run through the 85 companies that made the list: teamwork, recognition and fun.
The Best Places to Work survey measured 10 different areas: team effectiveness, retention risk (employee loyalty), alignment with goals (does employee understand goals of company?), trust with coworkers, individual contribution (does the company adequately recognize employees?), manager effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued (does the company invest in employee success?), satisfaction with current role, and people practices (satisfaction with company benefits).
"It is an honor to have a team that enjoys coming to work every day, especially as we continue to grow and add people to the team" says JH Specialty President John Henry III. "JH Specialty is truly a family environment, and it is a pleasure spending the majority of my days with these talented individuals."
