ATAS International Wins 2017 Lehigh Valley Top Workplaces Award

Designandbuildwithmetal.com – Allentown, PAATAS International Inc. has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor for the second consecutive year by The Morning Call. The organizations who receive a Top Workplaces award are determined solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics LLC, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.

Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including employee engagement, leadership, alignment, and connection, just to name a few. Engaged employees are known to drive productivity and results at work, which benefit the organization’s own team members, as well as their customers.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” said 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 added, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

ATAS International is honored to once again receive this prestigious award. Comments made by ATAS employees while completing the survey were not only shared with the owners and managers at ATAS, but with all the employees. Some of the survey comments made anonymously by the ATAS team members include:

• “Employees are kept informed on how well the company is performing.”

• “There is a high level of commitment and respect that each employee shows to one another.”

• “ATAS is fully invested in our training and personal growth.”

• “I appreciate the honesty and integrity of the company and the employees.”

• “ATAS values all of their employees, and it shows.”

Along with the positive feedback were suggestions on areas for improvement, which will be reviewed and considered for implementation.

Anne Hicks, Executive Assistant at ATAS International, who facilitated ATAS’ involvement in the Top Workplaces employee survey said, “I’m excited that ATAS has earned this award again in 2017. Our company is growing and we are always evaluating how we can continue to meet and exceed the needs of our customers. Without our dynamic team of engaged employees, we would not be able to achieve our goals. We are very excited about the future of ATAS as we continue to expand and develop, and I am proud to be part of this team.”
