AAM Ranked a Best Place to Work by the Phoenix Business Journal
AAM proudly announces it was voted one of the Phoenix Business Journal's Best Places to Work in 2019 for the large size company category (250-999 employees).
This year, Best Places to Work honored 100 companies of varying sizes that have cultivated a company culture that both attracts and retains its employees. This annual collection of awards are solely based on the results of an employee satisfaction survey, through which AAM is celebrating being recognized for a twelfth year.
Home to 500 local employees and over 718 nationwide, AAM attributes being consistently included on the Best Places to Work list to continually channeling efforts to provide its dedicated workforce an environment that encourages not only employee growth but overall well-being.
"As an organization, our focus is centered on the quality of life of all our employees and operates under the core belief that the most successful and productive employees are a direct result of a positive work experience," stated Lydia Elie, AAM's Vice President of Human Resources.
In order to build and maintain this positive work experience, AAM consistently pursues innovative ways to express employee appreciation. This includes the launch of the Best Place to Work Committee comprised of employees who volunteer their time to meet once a month and plan events for the corporate office. Operating under the company fundamental, "Keep Things Fun," this committee was created to encourage employees to take a break from their daily workload and participate in various events such as Taco Tuesdays, snow cone trucks, food trucks, Build Your Own Trail Mix Bar, holiday-themed activities, ice cream socials and pizza parties. Additionally, AAM sponsors semiannual corporate chair massages and off-site team-building activities.
AAM also embraces a culture of compassion and encourages employees to give to the communities in which they live and work. Driven by one of its company fundamentals, "Give Back. Pay Forward," AAM developed a Corporate Volunteer Program titled AAM Gives. This program allows for all employees to participate in AAM sponsored volunteer events during work hours to benefit various local organizations.
"Earning a spot on the Best Places to Work list year after year is such an incredible honor and a true testament to our commitment to creating the best work environment possible for our employees," stated Amanda Shaw, President of AAM. "Awards founded on employee satisfaction such as Best Places to Work are critical in helping us remain on the right track to further enhance employee experience."
