This award is a recognition of an elite group of companies who are the best example of leadership, growth and success in Northeast Ohio. Qualifications for consideration of the highly coveted award include being a for-profit, independently owned business residing in one of the 16 counties of Northeast Ohio, and growth in net sales from at least $100,000 to at least $1,000,000 over the past five years.

Weatherhead 100 awards were established in 1988 by the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University, considered among the pre-eminent authorities on the recognition of entrepreneurship.

Calyx will celebrate this outstanding achievement with other fellow Weatherhead winners at the spirited black-tie award ceremony on December 12, 2019.

Calyx is proud to be recognized by ERC as one of 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the second time in as many years that our 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.

“We’re truly honored to be recognized by Northcoast 99 as one of the best places to work in Northeastern Ohio. We’ve been very intentional in developing a culture that promises both challenge and opportunity,” says Jason Fordu, CEO. “Our entire team deserves the acknowledgment, because they don’t settle for status quo. They’re always looking to create a better way. They make Calyx who we are.”

“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.

The 2019 NorthCoast 99 Awards program is sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield; CareerCurve; Cleveland Magazine; ERChealth; Gino’s Awards; Maloney + Novotny; Mark Wayner Creative; Meyers, Roman, Friedberg & Lewis; Oswald Companies; Staffing Solutions Enterprises; and Ultimate Software.
