American Global Logistics (AGL), a specialized supply chain logistics and visibility company based in Atlanta, has been named as one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication’s second annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.
The “Best Workplaces 2017” list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies.
“We’ve worked hard to foster an environment that encourages all Team Members—regardless of role or function—to continually search for innovation,” said Jon Slangerup, CEO, American Global Logistics. “Success is rewarded, of course, but failure is never condemned, it is considered a learning opportunity so that Team Members can be confident to explore new ways to maintain the value we deliver to our clients while advancing their own skillset.”
In addition to this latest honor, the AGL Atlanta office has been named to the list of “The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®” by the National Association for Business Resources for five consecutive years and was named one of the country’s Top 50 “Great Places to Work” by Fortune
The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses.
“By introducing an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.” says Eric Schurenberg, Inc.’s President and Editor-In-Chief.
