PlastiCert wins Alfred P. Sloan Award

| May 31, 2013 10:44 am ET

Injection molder and mold maker PlastiCert Inc. has received a 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility.

Given by Families and Work Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management, the Sloan award recognizes employers across the country. The Lewiston, Minn.-based company was picked because of its efforts to use flexibility in the workplace as part of a strategy "to achieve business goals and benefit employees by helping them meet their responsibilities on and off the job."

“The criteria is quite stringent and selection field is very exclusive”, said PlastiCert owner and President Craig Porter, in a news release. "Management answers questions to get their organization through the first level of screening and become a finalist. The most telling aspect is that our co-workers are provided surveys that they answer anonymously for the selection committee to review. Combine that with being a small manufacturer and a lean workforce and we are truly proud of what we have put together at PlastiCert."

PlastiCert was founded in 1981, initially as a custom molder targeted at the electronics industry. Today the company serves customers in the telecommunications, industrial, computer, avionics and medical markets.
