Centric Consulting’s recognition validates the firm as a premier employer in Northeast Ohio.
The NorthCoast 99 award honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the 11th time Centric Consulting has received the prestigious NorthCoast 99 award.
“More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research program ERC established to help make our region a long-term destination of choice for companies and high-performing individuals,” said Samantha Marx, ERC’s Director of Strategic Projects, who oversees the NorthCoast 99 program. “The data from this program helps employers adapt their policies and practices to attract and retain top-notch talent.”
NorthCoast 99 winners participate in a rigorous application process that asks for detailed information about how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development and retention in the areas of 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.
“Our people are our greatest asset,” said Kindra Helm, Senior Manager for Centric Consulting’s Cleveland team. “We understand investing in Centric means investing in our people. Personal, professional and company growth are not independent of each other, which is why we strive to innovate, collaborate, be vulnerable and get creative to serve our team members. The NorthCoast 99 award recognizes our continued push to deliver unmatched experiences to our employees.”
Centric’s Cleveland team has 43 regional employees, providing diverse service offerings, from multi-year and multi-phase technology implementations to short-term focused engagements. The company’s Northeast Ohio-based consultants bring years of experience to find solutions for their clients around data and analytics, organizational change management and enterprise collaboration for insurance, manufacturing, healthcare, energy and utilities, government, and financial services industries.
“It’s no surprise that the 2022 NorthCoast 99 winning organizations are leading our region! These outstanding companies prioritize the employee experience, offering attractive benefits and innovative policies that today’s workforce demands. We’re thrilled to recognize the winning companies and look forward to sharing their success stories,” said ERC President Kelly Keefe.
The 2022 NorthCoast 99 awards program is sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, CareerCurve, Cleveland Magazine, ERChealth, Fifth Third Bank, Gino’s Awards, Maloney + Novotny; Meyers, Roman, Friedberg & Lewis, Oswald Companies, Staffing Solutions Enterprises, UKG and Wayfind Creative.
