BELOIT, Wis. — For the seventh consecutive year, ABC Supply Co. Inc.has been honored with the Gallup Great Workplace Award, which recognizes the best-performing workforces in the world. The company is one of only 32 worldwide to receive the 2013 award, and one of only three to have received the award every year since its inception.

“We want to be the very best in our industry,” Co-Founder and Chairman Diane Hendricks said. “To do that, we need to have the best associates — people who believe in our mission and share our commitment to providing the best customer service. We also need to empower our associates to be the best, giving them the opportunities, tools and support they need to succeed. Receiving the Gallup Great Workplace Award tells us that we’re doing both of these things. That’s why it means so much to us.”

Chief Executive Officer David Luck said, “Being a Gallup Great Workplace Award winner is a big source of pride for us, and we are thrilled to again receive this honor. Even more important, however, is that our associate engagement scores, as measured by Gallup, continue to improve year after year. They increased again in 2012, setting a new record for us and once again exceeding Gallup’s standards for world-class engagement.”

The award is based on rigorous statistical research. Companies considered for the honor were evaluated by a panel of workplace experts who compared each company’s results to those of other companies all over the world. The award is based on multiple criteria, including response rates, overall engagement levels and evidence of engagement’s impact on performance.
