Widely recognized for over a century as the world’s leading independent dairy flavor company, Edlong has been recognized for the eighth consecutive year as among Best and Brightest Companies To Work For in the Nation by the National Association for Business Resources.
The 2021 Summer National winning companies were assessed by an independent research firm that reviewed a number of key measures, with a specific focus on those which demonstrated exceptional innovative human resource practices and set high standards for all businesses.
“This recognition is a direct reflection of the people of Edlong,” said Laurette Rondenet, CEO and President of Edlong, the food manufacturing industry’s only certified woman-owned flavor house. “To again be named a best-in-class business to work for only amplifies our deep appreciation for the people, partners, and customers that drive our culture of inclusivity and innovation.”
Nominated businesses were evaluated based on a number of different categories, including Compensation, Benefits and Employee Solutions, Employee Enrichment, Engagement and Retention, Employee Education and Development, Recruitment, Selection and Orientation, Employee Achievement and Recognition, Communication and Shared Vision, Diversity and Inclusion, Work-Life Balance, Community Initiatives, and Strategic Company Performance.
“The Best and Brightest is a powerful community of elite leaders who share ideas and practices, and have proven they are employers of choice,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs. “Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important actions in creating a sustainable culture that works, ensuring the wellbeing of their employees come first.”
Added Edlong Vice President of Human Resources, Lauren Wolf: “It is an honor for Edlong to again be recognized as one of the best places to work in the nation. We have an amazingly talented team, each passionate and proud of their part in bringing Everything Dairy Can Be to life for the world’s most successful F&B brands.”
