Equity Trust Company is a 10-Time NorthCoast 99 Award Winner


WESTLAKE, OHIO, September 1, 2023

NorthCoast 99Equity Trust Company has been named a 2023 NorthCoast 99 award winner by ERC, the Employers Resource Council. The NorthCoast 99 award honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the tenth time that Equity Trust has received the prestigious award, making the company a Legacy Award winner.

“Twenty-five years ago, ERC established the NorthCoast 99 annual awards program and event to help make our region a long-term destination of choice for companies and high-performing individuals,” said Samantha Marx, ERC’s Director of Strategic Projects, who oversees the NorthCoast 99 program. “More than a badge of honor, this yearlong research program provides employers with data on the policies and practices that are proven to attract and retain top-notch talent.”

NorthCoast 99 winners participated in a rigorous application process that asked for detailed information on how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development, and retention in the areas of organizational strategy, policies, and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“The fact that Equity Trust has been named to the NorthCoast 99 a tenth time shows our longstanding commitment to attracting and keeping top talent,” said Amy Hall, Chief People & Human Resources Officer, Equity Trust. “We live and breathe a culture where associates are inspired to achieve while also prioritizing a healthy work-life balance. We’re honored to be recognized again for our efforts.”

“It has been incredible to see the evolution of top workplaces over the last 25 years through the NorthCoast 99 program. While much has changed since the program’s founding in 1999, prioritizing the employee experience has remained a common theme among winning organizations. Year after year, the winners have developed innovative policies and offered exceptional benefits to attract, engage, and retain talented workers. We look forward to recognizing this year’s winners and sharing their success stories,” said ERC President Kelly Keefe.

The 2023 NorthCoast 99 awards program is sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Cleveland Magazine, ERChealth, Fifth Third Bank, Maloney + Novotny; Meyers, Roman, Friedberg & Lewis, Oswald Companies, Staffing Solutions Enterprises, and The Standard.
