Plex was selected from among 2,400 candidates across the country.

“Plex’s global leadership is made possible through our talented and passionate team members who are dedicated to helping manufacturers succeed,” said Bill Berutti, Plex Systems CEO. “We’re proud to lead the nation in workplace excellence and are committed to continuing to be the best place to work, period.”

“Plex Systems develops workplace excellence programs as unique as our employees,” said Cheryl Yuran, Plex’s group vice president of human resources. “We regularly solicit feedback and survey our global workforce to discover how we can best support our employees both personally and professionally while fostering a positive workplace culture. This approach has led to several innovative offerings, from a health and wellness reimbursement program to competitive benefits like a company-wide bonus plan, access to free training tools, and tuition reimbursement.” 

“Profitability and stability are essential for businesses in today’s economic climate,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, National Association for Business Resources. “Companies that recognize that their employees are the key to their success achieve staying power.
