Transitions Optical Wins Gallup Great Workplace Award for Fourth Consecutive Year

PINELLAS PARK, Fla., April 3, 2013 – For the fourth year in a row, Transitions Optical, Inc. is being honored with the Gallup Great Workplace Award – a distinction that celebrates the best-performing workforces in the world in terms of employee engagement and productivity. The award will be presented during the 2013 Gallup Great Workplace Summit, held May 7-9 in Omaha, Nebraska.

The 2013 Gallup Great Workplace Award winners were determined by a panel of workplace experts, who evaluated thousands of applicants based on exhaustive workplace research. Results were compared across a workplace research database composed of millions of work teams in more than 100 countries. Transitions Optical is one of only 32 organizations to receive a Gallup Great Workplace Award for 2013.

“The Gallup Great Workplace Awards set apart the organizations that are setting global standards for workplace excellence," said Dr. James Harter, chief scientist for the 2013 Gallup Great Workplace Awards. “Transitions Optical has a proven track record for achieving high employee engagement and productivity and we congratulate them on winning this distinction for the fourth consecutive year.”

“Transitions Optical has a long history of creating innovative products to help our wearers see their best in any light, and I personally feel very fortunate to work with team members who are just as passionate about our products and their benefits as I am,” said Dave Cole, president, Transitions Optical. “We are so proud of the entire team and congratulate them on helping us bring home the Gallup Great Workplace Award once again.”
