AVON, Ohio (August 22, 2019) – ShurTech Brands, LLC, the Consumer & Craftsman Group of Shurtape Technologies, is proud to be recognized by ERC as one of 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the 14th time that our organization has received the NorthCoast 99 Award.

NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 21st year that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. “More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research project ERC established to help employers make a difference in the lives of people working and living in our 22-county region,” noted ERC senior vice president Carrie Morse, who has overseen the program for the last 17 years.

NorthCoast 99 winners participated in a rigorous application process that asked for detailed information on how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development, and retention in five distinct areas: organizational strategy, policies, and communication; recruitment, selecting, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and development; and total rewards.

“We are honored to be recognized once again as a great place to work in Northeast Ohio,” said John Kahl, CEO of ShurTech Brands. “Believing in our people, focusing on our community and striving for excellence throughout our organization are among the values engrained in our corporate culture – and we believe our people, with their unwavering passion and unbridled creativity, truly make the difference. We’re thrilled be included with these highly regarded employers and aspire to remain among these leading-edge organizations for many years to come.”

“We’re thrilled to recognize and celebrate this year’s NorthCoast 99 award winners! With unemployment at a 49-year low, the benchmarks for attracting, engaging, and retaining employees are higher than ever. Year after year, winning organizations are raising the bar with increasingly progressive and groundbreaking HR practices and benefits that elevate the experience of their employees,” said Kelly Keefe, president of ERC.

The 2019 NorthCoast 99 Awards program is sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield; CareerCurve; Cleveland Magazine; ERChealth; Gino’s Awards; Maloney + Novotny; Mark Wayner Creative; Meyers, Roman, Friedberg & Lewis; Oswald Companies; Staffing Solutions Enterprises; and Ultimate Software.
