 Highlights from Our First Certification Nation Day

Certification Employer Brand

Annnnd that’s a wrap! On October 22, Great Place To Work-Certified™ companies put on their scarlet and blue finery for Certification Nation Day. It was our first national celebration of Certified companies and their people.

From healthcare organizations in Pennsylvania to retailers in Illinois, great workplaces showed their fun and caring sides and celebrated their staff. There were heartfelt thank yous, a lot of cake decorating and wonderful video tributes. Here are a few of our favorite #GPTWcertified moments…

The leadership team at Burlington Stores, Inc. served up an ‘Associate Appreciation Breakfast’

“Burlington remains a #GPTWcertified company thanks to the contributions of every member of #OurBurlington team. Exec leaders thanked associates on our corporate campus by serving them breakfast!”

Enlivant Assisted Living got their residents involved in the fun

 “Our Great Place To Work certified employees are celebrating #CertificationNationDay with the people who truly make this a great place to be - our residents! Across the nation, our communities are having fun cookie decorating and striking a pose alongside our amazing seniors.”

KnowBe4's bash really took off


 “KnowBe4 has been recertified as a Great Place To Work by @gptw_us! This certification isn't just about having fun perks, it's about cultivating an engaging culture that prioritizes equality, justice, collaboration, impartiality, and trust. Thanks to all our Knowsters for being part of creating the fantastic work environment!”

Some companies, like Lincoln Healthcare, started a catchphrase

It’s time to celebrate being certified as a #GreatPlaceToWork for Certification Nation Day!?

And others posed for a family photo. Looking good, Altar’d State!
