Jim Berlin Honored with CEO Great Place to Work® For All Leadership Award
The award was presented last night at the 3rd annual Great Place to Work Leadership Awards Gala Dinner.
ERIE, PA (March 4, 2020) – Logistics Plus Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce that Jim Berlin, its founder and CEO, was recognized with a “CEO Great Place to Work For All Leadership Award.” The award was presented last night by Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work, at its 3rd annual Leadership Awards Gala Dinner at the Four Seasons in San Francisco.
The “For All Leader” awards recognize company leaders for long-term dedication and commitment to the development of every employee, for connecting diverse people to a common purpose, practicing humility and empathy, adapting to uncertainty, and for fostering trusting relationships across the organization. The CEO recipients were selected from companies that appear on Fortune’s annual lists of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, the 100 Best Workplaces for Women, the 100 Best Workplaces for Diversity, and the 150 Best Small and Medium Companies to Work For.
Logistics Plus has been certified as a Great Place to Work each of the past two years, and last year the company was recognized as the 54th best medium-sized workplace in the Fortune annual rankings.
“Thank you to Michael Bush and everyone here at Great Place to Work for the work you do to inspire companies and leaders to create the best workplaces in the world, and to recognize them when they do,” said Berlin. “My formula at Logistics Plus has been pretty simple. Surround yourself with good people. Treat them well. Communicate. Make work fun. If you do those things and you hire the right people, they’ll stay forever.”
In recognizing the honorees, Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush said “The financial performance of these organizations and the industry leading commitment to corporate responsibility provide strong evidence that when you create a great place to work for all, it is better for business, better for people and better for the world.”
Mr. Berlin joins a 2020 awards list that includes fewer than 50 CEOs from some of the most admired companies in the world, such as American Express, Delta, DHL, Marriott, Salesforce, and Wegmans. The complete list of honorees is available here (Jim’s profile is on page 11).
