Jostens has received recognition as one of the 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in the United States, an annual award that acknowledges employers that display leadership and innovation towards engaging employees and sales representatives.
"It is a tremendous honor to be named one of the 50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the United States and it reflects the collective strength of the Jostens team," said Tim Larson, President and CEO, Jostens. "We are fortunate to be a part of a great culture that begins with our customers and is built on our mission and values."
The 50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the United States are selected based on eight elements of employee engagement; communication, leadership, culture, rewards and recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values and corporate social responsibility.
Jostens selection was based on engagement practices that include teamwork and accountability, employee and sales representative recognition, grass roots involvement in environmental sustainability and social responsibility and community service at all Jostens locations. The selection also acknowledged Jostens team member engagement with customers through high impact programs like Commitment to Graduate™, Jostens Renaissance® and Pause Before You Post™.
The 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ is sponsored in the United States and Canada by I Love Rewards, an employee recognition company. Jostens was selected by a panel of judges comprised of Human Resource professionals. Other companies recognized in 2011 include ADP, KPMG, Eli Lilly, 3M and Zappos.
