BEAVER FALLS, PA – September 15, 2016 – The Ron Lewis Automotive Group has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

The Ron Lewis Automotive Group is the largest privately-owned business in Beaver Falls with its Ron Lewis Ford, Ron Lewis Chevrolet and Ron Lewis Kia dealerships.  Over 90 percent of the employees at those locations are from Beaver County.  “We are honored to be selected for this award, ranking us among the top 30 mid-size companies in our region,” said Jobie Glessner, General Manager of the Beaver Falls locations.  “It means even more that our employees were the ones who gave us their vote of confidence.”  Beaver Falls resident, Steve Peterson, Vice President of Sales for Ron Lewis Automotive, has been with the company for over 40 years.  Quentin Strouss, also a Beaver Falls resident, is Ron Lewis Ford’s longest tenured employee, working with the company for over 63 years.  This is the second year in a row that the Ron Lewis Automotive Group was named one of Pittsburgh’s Top Workplaces.  To be considered for employment at the Ron Lewis Automotive Group, resumes can be sent to [email protected].
