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.
“Pomerene is delighted to receive this award for the 14th year,” says Kim Croft, Executive Director of Human Resources at Pomerene Hospital. “We understand that our employees are the single most important factor for our success, and we greatly appreciate their dedication. We strive to continue to be an excellent workplace, where our employees are genuinely happy and motivated about where they work and what they do.”
“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.
