Armor Protective Packaging named to INC. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018

Armor Protective Packaging® (ARMOR), a manufacturer of clean, safe and easy to use rust prevention and removal products, has been named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018. The Inc. Magazine 2018 list of Best Workplaces is a recognition of those distinct, few businesses that value company culture, offer outstanding employee benefits and put a high priority on the well-being of their employees and ARMOR is so proud to be one of them!

According to Inc. Magazine, it takes more than good pay and good perks to be a Best Workplace award winner, it is also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes it all work.

As a company, ARMOR prides itself on a culture that supports work-life balance and that encourages employees to be authentic, have fun and put relationships and people before profits. “Our team drives our culture and our culture drives our team,” said David Yancho, Vice President and co-owner, of ARMOR. “One of our core values is being auFUNtic, it’s a name we invented to describe being authentic, genuine and fun. Our team is engaged, talented, hardworking and knowledgeable, but they are also approachable and ‘real,’ a combination that is really important to us. We wanted to give people a reason to come to work, not just a place to go to work.”
Out of thousands of companies across the United States, ARMOR was one of 300 to be honored by Inc. Magazine. Criteria for Inc.’s Best Workplaces included an assessment of each company’s employee benefits as well as the employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey. Although the survey was anonymous, ARMOR received a summary report of results and comments provided by its employees.

“What stood out most in our survey results was the theme of team or family—it came through in both our scores and in the comments,” said Robin McConnell, President and co-owner, of ARMOR. “It has always been important to the ARMOR leadership and our founder, John Holden, that we create an environment where people want to be here, where they are happy, valued and are able to do their best work. The Inc. Magazine survey results served as confirmation that we are making that happen.”
