Glimcher Selected As One Of The Best Places To Work In Ohio

Glimcher Realty Trust (NYSE: GRT), one of the country’s premier retail REITs, beat out hundreds of Ohio companies to be selected among the best places to work in Ohio by the Ohio Society for Human Resource Management. Glimcher was ranked number seven among large organizations with 250 employees or more on the 2012 Best Employers in Ohio list.

“At Glimcher, we believe our company culture is critical to our success and it is something we strive to maintain and cultivate every day,” said Grace E. Schmitt, VP, Human Resources, Glimcher. “We are proud to be recognized as a best place to work and give credit to our associates for this honor.”

Glimcher was among hundreds of publicly and privately held organizations and nonprofits from Ohio that competed in a two-part process to determine the state's best employers for 2012. The Best Employers in Ohio are broken down into two categories: small/medium companies with 15-249 employees, and large companies with 250 or more employees.

Each organization in the competition was evaluated first, based on benefits, policies, practices, philosophy and systems information. Second, select organizations participated in an employee feedback survey to determine the top rankings.

The Ohio Society for Human Resource Management is devoted to human resources management and serves the needs of HR professionals in Ohio and is committed to advancing the HR profession. This is Glimcher’s first time on the Best Employer list, although the company has been recognized for the past two years by Columbus Business First as one of the “Best Places to Work in Columbus.”
