BELOIT, Wis. — People and relationships have always been a key focus for ABC Supply, from taking care of our people — giving them opportunities and best-in-class training — to taking care of customers — setting them up for success and helping them navigate complex challenges that arise.  

This year, ABC Supply is celebrating two big people milestones: its 40th anniversary and 16th consecutive Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award

ABC Supply has long partnered with the Gallup Organization to be measured against a set of rigorous criteria that assesses employee engagement. Gallup studies millions of employees and organizations around the world, and its research and data show that exceptional workplaces share two common characteristics: a people-focused business strategy and a committed workplace culture. These characteristics speak to an employer’s ability to create a positive, supportive culture where employees feel engaged and motivated to succeed. 

The Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award recognizes the top companies around the world that incorporate employee engagement into the bedrock of how they do their work, motivate their teams and achieve business outcomes.

“Winning this award so many years in a row is a testament to the skill, strength and commitment of our more than 17,000 associates,” says Mike Jost, chief operating officer at ABC Supply. “They’re the reason we’ve been so successful for the past 40 years.” 

In 2022, only 41 companies were selected by the panel of judges to receive this global award. Additionally, ABC Supply is only one of two companies worldwide to receive this recognition every year since the award was created in 2007. A complete list of 2022 winners can be viewedhere.
