COE Distributing Honored For Third Consecutive Year with Pittsburgh Top Workplaces Award
COE Distributing has been awarded a 2022 Top Workplaces honor by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, ranking 27 of 70 small companies recognized on the list. This is COE’s third consecutive appearance in the Top Workplaces rankings.
Altogether, the Post-Gazette spotlighted 105 Pittsburgh-area companies of various sizes and industries on the rankings which are based solely on feedback from employees who rate their workplace culture through a third-party survey administered by the Post-Gazette’s Top Workplaces research partner Energage LLC.
The anonymous survey measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures critical to the success of any organization. Data collected addresses employee satisfaction with the basics like pay, benefits and training and gives a unique look at the importance employees place on issues such as their alignment with their company’s values and direction, having meaningful work and feeling appreciated.
“The Top Workplaces award is incredibly important to our leadership team because the engagement and satisfaction of our most vital asset—our people—is what drives our actions and our culture every day,” said COE Distributing Chairman and CEO J.D. Ewing.
“Our team never ceases to amaze us, exceeding expectations and working together to overcome challenges and shatter records. We’re grateful for their efforts and proud of all we’re able to accomplish together.”
COE Distributing’s robust employee engagement program drives the company’s impressive growth and success, offering more than 100 employees career development programs like Rising Stars training, employee recognition and profit-sharing programs, and personal benefits such as financial workshops, volunteer paid time off and virtual book clubs.
COE also enjoys an employee engagement partnership with the Pittsburgh Penguins featuring a bi-weekly, peer-to-peer recognition program awarding a game-worn Penguins helmet to an employee embodying COE’s core values of Customer Service, Teamwork, Innovation, Quality, Transparency, Safety and Respect.
The Post-Gazette awards process began back in January, when the Post-Gazette and Energage invited public, private, nonprofit or governmental entities with more than 50 employees to participate in its 2022 survey. The official rankings, tabulated from the 24-question survey completed by employees of each participating company, were announced in a special edition of the Post-Gazette and COE and honorees were celebrated in an awards program on September 23.
