NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 22nd year that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. “More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a year-long research project that ERC established to help employers make a notable difference not only in the lives of their employees, but also in the economic vitality of their communities,” said Samantha Marx, ERC director of client service, who oversees the program.
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 the following areas: organizational strategy, policies, and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity and inclusion.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for the third time as a NorthCoast 99 winner,” said Huda Farunia, Vice President of Human Resources at Asurint. “Our employees are the backbone of our organization and we know that all things are possible with their dedication and hard work. During these unprecedented times, they have stepped up to meet the challenge and go above and beyond to meet our clients’ needs and ensure that Asurint continues to deliver the service and support we pride ourselves on. We are so proud of our employees who remain steadfast to the mission of getting Americans on the job as quickly and efficiently as possible."
“Especially during these unprecedented times, we’re thrilled to recognize and celebrate this year’s NorthCoast 99 award winners! Winning organizations are elevating the employee experience with increasingly progressive and innovative HR practices and benefits that are critical in today’s market. We look forward to sharing the success stories of our esteemed winners,” said Kelly Keefe, president of ERC.
