BTX Global Logistics Chief Executive Officer and President Ross Bacarella was named the winner of the 2018 Top Leadership award for small employers in Connecticut in Hearst Media's Top Workplaces. The honor was announced at an awards ceremony at The Waterview (Monroe, Conn.) made up of the leading employers in the area where BTX was also recognized as a Hearst Connecticut Media Group Top Workplace for the third consecutive year.
Any company with less than 125 employees in the Connecticut area was categorized as a small business. Businesses with 125-139 employees were considered mid-size and those with more than 400 employees were categorized as large. Although BTX Global Logistics employs staff throughout 28 office locations in the U.S. and Canada, only approximately 100 of its staff is based out of its Corporate headquarters in Shelton, Connecticut.
"I am humbled and honored by this nomination. My goal is to provide BTX employees with the infrastructure, tools and support needed to make this a positive, fun and happy workplace," said Ross Bacarella at the Top Workplaces
BTX Global Logistics is a worldwide provider of shipping, logistics and e-commerce solutions. Bacarella has propelled BTX to the forefront of the shipping and logistics industry through his dedication to service, innovation, technology and attention to the well-being of his staff.
The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent research company and provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey is sent out to employees to measure several aspects of workplace culture including company leadership, alignment, growth opportunity and training, flexibility, compensation, benefits and engagement.
"Top Workplaces is more than just recognition," said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. "Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement."
Bacarella added, "A happy employee is a good employee that can offer customers the best services."
