TAYLOR, Mich. -- Atlas Oil Co. has announced its recognition as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the United States. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces.

"The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces understand that employee engagement is not just a buzzword, but that engaged employees provide businesses with a unique competitive advantage. Companies that focus on employee success have better engagement and alignment with business objectives and company values," said Achievers CEO Patrick D. Quirk. "These companies serve as role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success."

The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces Awards panel of judges evaluated each applicant based on the "Eight Elements of Employee Engagement": Communication, Leadership, Culture, Rewards & Recognition, Professional & Personal Growth, Accountability & Performance, Vision & Values and Corporate Social Responsibility.

"Atlas has experienced a 25% growth rate year over year," said Michael Evans, president and COO of Atlas Oil. "This growth didn't happen by accident. Our Atlas team members have a passion for this business and they work hard every day to exceed our customers' expectations. We are proud to be able to attract high caliber talent to the company and our employee engagement is a key component in our recruiting efforts."

The panel of 14 judges included various academics and thought leaders on employee engagement, and included representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA), Human Capital Institute (HCI) and Northern California HR Association.

Achievers will honor Atlas Oil alongside other recipients of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces Award at an event on April 2, 2014, in San Francisco.

San Francisco-based Achievers offers cloud-based "employee success platform" software designed to engage, align and recognize employees.
