Safelite Wins 'People First' Award
November 14, 2012

Safelite AutoGlass has been awarded a 2012 Optimas Award for its People First human resources (HR) initiative by Workforce.

The company introduced the initiative three years ago with the hope that it would aid the company in its reach for exponential growth over a short period of time.

"Workforce's goal is to show how leaders in the HR profession are guiding their companies to greater success through the astute management of an organization's most valuable corporate asset-its employees," says Andrea Whitney, director of content strategy from Workforce. "The Optimas Award winners are workforce management leaders who have identified critical business issues in their organizations and responded with initiatives that are key to the company's success."

Since launching the People First initiative, Safelite reports record customer satisfaction at 85 percent in 2011 and sales of $1.1 billion for 2011, which achieved the company goal of doubling sales.
