Jergens, Inc. is Honored to be a Two-Time Recipient of the NorthCoast 99 Award

Jergens, Inc. is proud to be recognized by ERC as one of 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent in 2021. This is the second time our organization has received the NorthCoast 99 Award.

NorthCoast 99 is an awards program that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. The program was developed in 1999 by ERC. NorthCoast 99 consists of an application that collects information on organizational HR practices and an event that celebrates top-performing companies.

"The entire Jergens Team is excited to be selected again as a winner of the 2021 NorthCoast 99 Award. We thank the selection committee for picking Jergens for the award. An award of this nature is never won by the organization but is really won by all those team members who make up the Jergens family. This year marks the eightieth in business for Jergens. The business of today has been built on the foundation of generations of the Jergens family making it possible to win the 2021 NorthCoast 99 Award. We look forward to the future and all that future will bring to our team." - Jack H. Schron Jr, President of Jergens Inc.

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 the following areas: organizational strategy, policies, and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research project that ERC established to help make our region a long-term destination of choice for companies and high-performing individuals. The data from this program helps employers stay current on organizational practices and understand what top performers want and need so they can be responsive,” said Samantha Marx, Member Service Director at ERC, who oversees the program.

The 2021 NorthCoast 99 Awards program is sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield; CareerCurve; Cleveland Magazine; ERChealth; Gino’s Awards; Impact Architects; Maloney + Novotny; Meyers, Roman, Friedberg & Lewis; Oswald Companies; Staffing Solutions Enterprises; UKG; and Wayfind Creative.
