The Baltimore Sun Names Shapiro as a Top Workplace for the Sixth Year in a Row

The Baltimore Sun lists Shapiro, a 101-year old logistics and supply chain management provider, as one of the top places to work in Baltimore, Maryland, for the sixth year in a row.

Shapiro, a Baltimore-based 101-year old Customs broker and freight forwarder, has been named one of Baltimore’s best places to work for the sixth year in a row by the Baltimore Sun. Firms were nominated and then evaluated using confidential surveys conducted by Workplace Dynamics, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement, which focuses on gauging employees’ satisfaction in multiple categories, including corporate direction, execution, pay/benefits, and engagement.

Shapiro ranked as number 58 out of 65 companies on the small employers list. The company employs a little over 90 employees in its headquarters office in Baltimore and also has offices along the East Coast in Rosedale, New York; Philadelphia, PA; Charleston, SC; and Dulles, VA, with a total of approximately 140 employees. Shapiro is now in its third generation of family ownership and management.

WorkplaceDynamics invited 1,314 workplaces to participate and surveyed 171 of them. Only those organizations that agreed to participate were included in the surveys. The surveyed firms employ 32,667 people in the Baltimore area. Of those employees who received questionnaires, 17,945 responded, either on paper or online.

“Samuel Shapiro & Company is honored to be selected as a ‘Top Workplace’ for the sixth consecutive year by the Baltimore Sun and, almost importantly, by our family of employees,” said Margie Shapiro, the company’s president and CEO. “Our mission statement is ‘We Deliver. Problem Solved.’ This promise to our customers continues to be delivered by passionate, creative people with the fire and commitment to design the best logistics solutions in the business.”

The Baltimore Sun published the complete list of Top Workplaces on December 4th.
