The top three rankings will be announced November 9, 2011.
The Best Places to Work program, launched in 2005, is open to any company or organization with a central Ohio office with at least 10 full-time employees. Applications are handled through Quantum, which administers a survey to employees with about 30 questions regarding their work environments. Safelite AutoGlass® was also a finalist in 2008 and 2009.
Safelite AutoGlass® is committed to creating a culture that delivers on the company's "People Pledge":
You'll experience great leadership. You'll be treated with respect. You'll often be asked for your opinions and involved in decisions that affect your work. You'll understand the big picture and your role in it. You'll receive guidance to help you reach your full potential and you'll be recognized for your hard work in delivering extraordinary results.
We focus on you first. Concentrating on our people is a key part of our business strategy. You'll have the tools, the information and resources to position you for success, along with support and opportunity for a rewarding and fulfilling career.
We hire top talent... that includes you. Having great people is what sets us apart from the rest. You'll work with smart people every day who will inspire you to be at your best. By bringing your ideas and applying your skills, you'll have endless opportunities to grow both personally and professionally.
You'll work in a caring culture. We have a strong set of values and a big heart... for our people, our customers, our environment and the communities in which we live and work. We strive for a culture that will inspire you to achieve... not just because you have to, but because you want to.

"An award that recognizes our company's culture and our dedication to our people is the most valued award we could earn.
