Jan. 28, 2021 (Lincolnshire, Ill.) – Today, Klein Tools, a family-owned and managed hand tools manufacturer, announced it has earned the 2021 Top Workplaces USA award, issued by Energage, a purpose-driven organization that develops solutions to build and brand Top Workplaces. This is the inaugural year for Top Workplaces USA, built on the program’s 14-year history surveying more than 20 million employees across 54 markets for the regional Top Workplaces awards.
“As a 164-year-old representative of the American manufacturing industry, we are honored to receive this recognition as a Top Workplace in the United States,” says Klein Tools Chairman Thomas Klein Sr. “We are especially proud of how all of our hardworking Klein Tools’ employees, on the plant floors through senior leadership, have not only maintained, but also strengthened our company culture while processing and adapting to some of the most drastic operational challenges in recent memory.”
Top Workplaces USA offers national recognition for large organizations, those with more than 150 employees, and those that may have operations in multiple markets. Several thousand organizations across the country were invited, and more than 1,100 participated in the Top Workplaces USA survey. Winners of the Top Workplaces USA list are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey, issued by Energage. Results are calculated by comparing the survey’s research-based statements, including 15 Culture Drivers that are proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.
"During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO.
