Centric Consulting is now a 10-time NorthCoast 99 Award winner, making this year’s recognition a Legacy Award, cementing our place among Northeast Ohio’s top workplaces.
Cleveland, OH, September 23, 2021 – Centric Consulting, an international business and technology consulting services firm, is proud to be recognized by ERC as a great workplace for top talent in Northeast Ohio.
This is the tenth consecutive year we have received the prestigious NorthCoast 99 Award, placing us in the prestigious category of 2021 Legacy Award Winners.
“Winning this award for 10 years in a row is a real testament to the emphasis Centric’s leadership places on creating unmatched experiences for its staff,” said Kindra Helm, a Senior Manager for our Cleveland practice. “As a consulting company, our people truly are our most valuable asset, and Centric demonstrates day in and day out how to lead and develop people to bring them the most value and to bring our clients even greater value.”
NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 23rd year that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent.
“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.
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.
Kelly Keefe, President of ERC, said, “Talent wins in today’s labor market. The NorthCoast 99 winners know this, so they continue to build progressive and innovative HR practices and benefits to attract and retain the best and brightest. We’re thrilled to recognize the 2021 winning organizations and look forward to sharing their success stories.”
