Daishowa-Marubeni International’s Peace River Pulp Division has earned a spot on the list of 50 Most Engaged Workplaces compiled by Achievers. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging employees.

“We are honored to have been selected as a workplace that recognizes the value of our team members. As a company, we understand that diversity in culture, skills, attitudes, and lifestyles contribute to a strong and motivated environment,” stated Bill Downing, mill manager of the Peace River Pulp Division.

Recipients of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Awards will be honored at award galas on March 6, 2014 in Toronto.

Achievers is a supplier of software that helps global companies increase employee engagement, retention, and performance to drive overall business success. The panel of 14 judges for the Achievers Award included various academics and thought leaders on employee engagement, as well as representatives of organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA), and Human Capital Institute (HCI).

Employers were through the lens of what Achievers calls the eight elements of employee engagement:  communication, leadership, culture, recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values, and corporate social responsibility.
