BELOIT, Wis. — For the eighth time, ABC Supply Co. Inc. has been honored with the Gallup Great Workplace Award, which recognizes the best-performing workplaces worldwide. ABC Supply is one of only 36 companies in the world to receive the 2014 award. It also is one of only three eight-time winners, having received the award every year since its inception.

“Since our beginnings as a company, our goal has been to be the very best in our industry,” said Diane Hendricks, ABC Supply co-founder and chairman. “To do that, we must never lose sight of the 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 year after year tells us that we’re doing both of these things. That’s why it means so much to us.”

Keith Rozolis, president and chief executive officer of ABC Supply, explained that the Gallup Great Workplace Awards recognize the highest levels of associate engagement, which Gallup defines as “being emotionally invested in, and focused on, creating value for the organization.”

“Our associates can be very proud of this honor, because it is their long-term commitment to our vision and values that has made ABC Supply successful,” he said. 

The Gallup Great Workplace 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.
