Eastern Industrial Achieves Top Workplace Award

Eastern's Greenville, SC Distribution Center

Eastern Industrial Supplies, Inc. has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by Integrated Media Publishing. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“The overall positive feedback from our Ambassadors of our organizational health and workplace culture is humbling,” says Kip Miller, Eastern’s President and CEO. “Our Ambassadors truly care about people and they have a strong desire to have a positive impact upon one another, their communities, their country, and cultures around the world. They are the reason our Eastern Cares initiatives thrive and drive our positive culture and growth.”
