Case Western Reserve University named NorthCoast 99 winner third year straight

Award recognizes "99 great workplaces for top talent in northeast Ohio"


CLEVELAND - For the third year in a row, Case Western Reserve University has earned a NorthCoast 99 award.

"Congratulations again on your organization being named one of the 99 great workplaces for top talent in northeast Ohio for 2006" reads in part a letter notifying the university of the distinction.

Case has been presented with the honor from the Employers Resource Council (ERC) in 2004, 2005, and once again this year. NorthCoast 99 is an annual, year-long effort to identify 99 of the best places to work in northeast Ohio by the ERC, Northeast Ohio's largest employers' association. The award recognizes employers that excel in compensation, benefits, health and safety, training and education, diversity, community service, recruitment and retention, and employee communication. The program also focuses on developing new workplace benchmarks for northeast Ohio businesses.

Representatives from the university will accept the award on behalf of the school during a ceremony on September 13 at LaCentre Conference & Banquet Facility in Westlake, Ohio. Inside Business magazine will feature this year's winners and awards dinner in a special section of its September 2006 issue.
