Advance Recognized as 2022 Best Places to Work finalist by the Baltimore Business Journal


Advance Business Systems was once again selected as a 2022 BBJ Best Places to Work finalist in the large company category. The Best Places to Work Awards recognize organizations in Greater Baltimore that go beyond the norm to foster an enjoyable and meaningful work environment for their employees. Advance is proud to continue to create a great place to work where employees feel valued and supported despite the ongoing challenges that businesses are facing in the workforce and office life.

All participating companies were ranked using anonymous surveys answered by employees and scored by Best Places to Work partner, Quantum Workplace. The survey measures employee’s opinions about various workplace factors including team and manager effectiveness, retention risk, alignment with goals, trust with co-workers, individual contribution, feeling valued, work engagement, trust in senior leaders and work engagement. Respondents were also asked to share what they love about their workplaces and how their companies are continuing to grow.

Since its inception 58 years ago, Advance has made caring for and investing in its employees a top priority. Their mission statement reflects their philosophy that places equal importance on the well-being of team members as it does on the customers they serve: “We are a people company with an intense passion for improving our customers’ businesses and enhancing our team members’ lives.”

“It is our core belief that providing a culture where employees feel valued, appreciated and cared for is what inspires and motivates our team to create exceptional customer relationships. This has never been more true than today and we couldn’t be prouder of this acknowledgement, ” says Jeff Elkin, President.
