CLEVELAND – June 26, 2023 – For the tenth consecutive year, Oswald Companies was named to The Plain Dealer Top Workplaces, midsize company list, announced June 25, 2023.

Evaluations for the Top Workplaces program are based on results from employee survey questions, which are focused on a variety of organizational health factors. The 2023 honoree list represents Northeast Ohio employers in three divisions.

“Top Workplaces recognizes companies that create a people-centered culture by giving all employees a voice and developing work environments that inspire performance and unlock potential. Every year, hundreds of local companies vie for one of these coveted spots. We believe the Oswald difference is employee ownership,” said Robert J. Klonk, chairman and chief executive officer of Oswald Companies.

Here’s what some of our employees had to say:

“We get to do the right thing for clients every day, as well as take care of our peers/co-workers. They are equally important.”

“I feel like we not only care about our clients’ needs, but we also truly care about each other and want to support each other.”

“I am proud of our PIRC values and truly believe that the executive leadership team models the way by giving these more than lip service. Our engagement activities and Days of Caring bring us together and keep me motivated and energized.”

“Overall, I think the collaborative, transparent and fun culture of this company is what sets it apart from others, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

“I love the fresh, new vision of our future and focus on building a better and more engaging workplace.”

Survey data is gathered through the Energage employee survey.
