HUDSON, Ohio — June 17, 2013 — AKHIA has been named one of the Top 100 Workplaces in Northeast Ohio for 2013 by The Plain Dealer, greater Cleveland’s daily newspaper.

AKHIA was selected based on an independent employee survey centered on employee workplace satisfaction. The survey distinguishes the companies that possess an outstanding culture and promote a positive work environment, and included categories such as job satisfaction, confidence in the future of their company, trust in co-workers, management effectiveness, and compensation and benefits.

“It’s our people who make AKHIA a great place to work, and we’re proud to have achieved this acknowledgment as a team,” said AKHIA President Jan Gusich. “AKHIA is a place where people achieve both professional and personal growth, and we embrace flexibility and strive for work-life balance. When an employee is happy, that always translates into a better product for our clients.”

The winners were listed in The Plain Dealer along with editorial content published Sunday, June 16. The workplace survey was conducted by Workplace Dynamics. More than 50,000 employee survey responses in total were reviewed.
