The Champion Companies a No. 1 Best Place to Work in Central Ohio

Because of team member growth, Champion qualified for the Large Company category for the first time.

WESTERVILLE, OH – The Champion Companies celebrated its third straight year on the list of Best Places to Work in Central Ohio by taking the No. 1 spot out of 10 honorees in the Large Company category.

The Best Places to Work list is compiled from real employee feedback through anonymous satisfaction surveys. Columbus Business First, who puts on the program each year, collaborates with Quantam Workplace to conduct the surveys.  They tally scores for each nominee, to determine overall employee satisfaction.

“We were thrilled to make the list for a third straight year, especially as we’ve grown our numbers and now qualify for the large company category,” said Champion President and CEO Brian Yeager. “But to then rank No. 1 based off real sentiment from our team members? I couldn’t be prouder or more humbled.”

Champion’s leaders credit the company’s people-first culture for its high level of employee satisfaction. A focus on transparency helps team members buy into goals and objectives, and fun gatherings reward them for their hard work. More importantly, programs like the Employee Profit Plan and full company-paid benefits help take care of team members and their families outside of work.

“We have a culture here unlike any I have ever seen,” said Kelli Berner, the company’s human resources director. “This honor is a true testament to each and every one of our team members and the passion that they bring to work every day.”
