Advance Business Systems Named 1 of 40 Finalists for the BBJ’s 2020 Best Places to Work Awards

Advance Business Systems is one of 40 companies selected as a 2020 BBJ Best Places to Work finalist. The Best Places to Work Awards recognize organizations for their outstanding efforts to create supportive, collaborative and engaging cultures where people love to work.

The award is based solely on survey results from the people who know them best – their employees. The survey administered by third-party research firm, Quantum Workplace, measures employee’s opinions about various workplace factors including communication, resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics and trust in leadership.

Advance is an iconic Baltimore-based business serving the Maryland business community for over 56 years and attributes its longevity to delivering exceptional service to customers as well as its commitment to the growth and development of its employees. Advance not only invests in initiatives that provide training and professional growth opportunities, but also has a full-scale Wellness Program that supports work/life balance by empowering employees to achieve their best possible health in the areas of community, financial, physical, purpose and social.

“Recognition from our own team members is always wonderful and it serves to validate and reinforce that we are on the right cultural path.  However, during these times, when the COVID pandemic has disrupted so much of our daily lives, it takes on an even more special meaning.  I am sincerely grateful to our entire Advance team and how they have doubled down on our commitment to our customers and community at a time when so many are in need,” says Jeff Elkin, President of Advance.

Winners will be announced at an event on September 24, 2020.
