Plastics News Ranks Team 1 Plastics #7 Amongst Processors at Executive Forum

According to the Plastics News website, “Best Places to Work is a survey and awards program dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers and providing organizations with valuable employee feedback.”  Since 2014, Plastics News has partnered with Best Companies Group to administer and determine the rankings for this survey-driven award.

Best Companies Group has a specific methodology when ranking the participating companies for the annual Best Places to Work (BPTW) award.  This method includes a thorough company assessment, an in-depth employer questionnaire, and a company-wide survey.  The employer questionnaire addresses things such as company policies, practices, and demographics – while the employee survey focuses on employee engagement and satisfaction.  The data is then analyzed, and participating employers are ranked against others in their industry.

For 2023, Team 1 Plastics has earned Plastics News’ Best Places to Work award for the ninth time! 

With this many years of being recognized by their team members as a great place to work, it is no wonder that Team 1 Plastics has historically been below the industry average for employee turnover.


For over 20 years, Plastics News has held an annual Executive Forum where “plastics industry leaders [take] the stage and shared their unique perspectives on what the future holds for their companies, and for the industry at large.”  Additionally, the BPTW winners are awarded at this forum with a plaque and an overall ranking.

Team 1’s Plant Manager Dave Sanford attended Plastics News’ 2023 Executive Forum last week in Clearwater Beach, Florida.  There he was given the plaque pictured above and received notice that Team 1 Plastics had ranked #7 amongst all processors.
