Philly.com Names Almo Corporation a 2016 Top Workplace
Philadelphia, PA – March 30, 2016: Almo Corporation, the nation’s leading independent distributor of Appliances, Consumer Electronics, Pro A/V equipment and Housewares, is proud to announce that Philly.com has again named the company a 2016 Top Workplace.
This marks the 4th consecutive year that Almo Corporation has been included in the Mid-Size Business category Top Workplace list. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
“Just last week we celebrated our 70th Anniversary as Almo Corporation”, noted Chairman of the Board Gene Chaiken. “We continue to be successful and have achieved our 4th consecutive year as a Top Workplace because this is a we and us company, not an I and me company. That shows in our culture, our longevity as a successful business, and our employee satisfaction.”
Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics explains the award; “To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
Founded in 1946 in Olde City Philadelphia, Almo Corporation has grown from a single storefront to a national billion dollar organization. Almo is a 3rd generation family owned business, led today by 2nd generation owner and company Chairman, Gene Chaiken, and 3rd generation owner Warren Chaiken, President and CEO. Known for its logistical capabilities, Almo serves as the sales and fulfillment supplier to many of the largest manufacturers in the world, delivering products to retailers both large and small across the country. By diversifying into a wide range of markets while remaining true to their strengths, Almo has been able to experience unprecedented growth and today its 450+ employees serve over 100 brands.
