Vocon is named a 2023 NorthCoast 99 Best Workplace award winner by ERC, the Employers Resource Council for the 19th time! Each year, NorthCoast 99 honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This year, Vocon also received a special award for the Organizational Strategy, Policies, and Benefits category.
NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 25th year that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. The program was developed in 1999 by ERC. NorthCoast 99 consists of an application that collects information on organizational HR practices and an event that celebrates top-performing companies.
“More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a year-long research program ERC established to help make our region a long-term destination of choice for companies and high-performing individuals,” said Samantha Marx, ERC’s Director of Strategic Projects, who oversees the NorthCoast 99 program. “The data from this workplace program helps employers adapt their policies and practices to attract and retain top-notch talent.”
NorthCoast 99 winners participate in a rigorous application process that asks for detailed information on how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development, and retention in the areas of organizational strategy, policies, and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Through this award, we’ve demonstrated that we’re committed to being a great workplace, and we’re honored to be among the outstanding organizations that have also achieved this distinction.
