Davenport, Iowa – February
20, 2019 – Midland Information Resources Company (dba Elanders Americas) of
Davenport, Iowa has been awarded the Best Workplace in the Americas (BWA) designation,
Best of the Best and Safety Shield, to recognize exemplary human resources practices
that create an outstanding workplace. For nearly 20 years, Printing Industries
of America’s BWA program has acted as an acknowledgment of printing industry
excellence in human resources practices.
Being designated a Best of the Best and Safety Shield company demonstrates the significant commitment that Midland Information Resources has made to its employees by investing in their work
environment, their personal goals and ambitions, and recognizing that an
exceptional workplace also serves the needs of the company.
A panel of respected human relations professionals from the print
industry judged entrants against benchmarking categories that promote the most
sought-after qualities of today's workforce, including: Communication &
Culture, Employee Resources & Benefits, and Work Environment & Safety. Those
awarded a Safety Shield designation were evaluated on OSHA compliance and best
safety practices for the printing industry.
"It’s an honor to be recognized by the
industry as a company that offers a superior workplace," said Kelly Green, Human Resource
Manager. "Receiving the honor of being both a Best of the Best company and a
Safety Shield recipient demonstrates our firm policy of conducting business in
a socially responsible and ethical manner. We focus our efforts on helping
employees find personal and professional growth, enjoyment through challenge,
and increased knowledge and responsibility. We provide a safe working environment
supported by a safety program that involves occupational, environmental, and
technological safety training, programs, and procedures."
Michael Makin, president and CEO of Printing
Industries of America, agrees. "Companies recognized in the Best Workplace in
the Americas program exhibit the highest commitment to success in many ways, but
particularly through their employees. Congratulations to Midland Information Resources."
