MINNEAPOLIS -- The Cleveland Indians have been named a 2012 NorthCoast 99 winner as one of the best workplaces in Northeast Ohio. This is the third time the organization has been a NorthCoast 99 winner.
The Employer's Resource Council (ERC) -- Northeast Ohio's leading and largest professional organization dedicated to human resources practices, programs, and services -- developed the program and annually presents 99 great workplaces for top talent in the area. The program was created in 1999, and has since recognized more than 300 organizations for maintaining great workplaces that support the attraction, retention, and motivation of top performers.
"We are honored to receive this recognition for the third time," Indians president Mark Shapiro said. "The Cleveland Indians culture is driven by core values that foster an environment in which people aspire to contribute and excel. We have a diverse workforce who directly contributes to our vision of creating memories, connecting generations and celebrating families."
The Indians became the first professional sports team to win the award in 2009. The Cleveland Plain Dealer also named the organization a Top Workplace in Northeast Ohio in June.
