Jergens Inc. is a 2019 NorthCoast 99 Award Winner

Cleveland, Ohio, Aug. 22, 2019 – Jergens, Inc. is proud to be recognized by ERC as one of 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the first time the organization has received the NorthCoast 99 Award.

NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 21st year that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. “More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research project ERC established to help employers make a difference in the lives of people working and living in our 22-county region,” noted ERC senior vice president Carrie Morse, who has overseen the program for the last 17 years.

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 five distinct areas: organizational strategy, policies, and communication; recruitment, selecting, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and development; and total rewards.

“The entire Jergens family of employees is excited to be selected as a 2019 NorthCoast 99 award winner.  Our company was founded in 1942 by my father and grandfather, and as the third generation leading the company, it has been a total team effort to support Jergens’ worldwide manufacturing of machine tooling, precision assembly tools and industrial distribution growth. Without them, none our of success over the last 77 years could have been achieved.” stated Jack H. Schron, Jr. President of Jergens, Inc.

“We’re thrilled to recognize and celebrate this year’s NorthCoast 99 award winners! With unemployment at a 49-year-low, the benchmarks for attracting, engaging, and retaining employees are higher than ever. Year after year, winning organizations are raising the bar with increasingly progressive and groundbreaking HR practices and benefits that elevate the experience of their employees,” said Kelly Keefe, president of ERC.
