Advance Named 2023 Best Places to Work Finalist in the Large Company Category by the BBJ!

Cockeysville, Maryland, May 25, 2023 – Advance Business Systems is pleased to announce that once again it has been named a BBJ Best Places to Work finalist for 2023 in the large company category. The Best Places to Work Awards recognize organizations in Greater Baltimore that go the extra mile for their employees during a time when businesses are facing hiring and retention challenges. A recurring theme from employees who participated in this year’s anonymous survey was how they felt personally valued and not just valued for how they can contribute to the company’s bottom line.  

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 such as leadership, culture, benefits and more. Best Places to Work results are quantitative, based on survey responses from employees themselves, rather than a panel of outside judges. 

Since its inception 59 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.” 

“Our business and industry continue to evolve at a blistering pace. Yet, there is one constant throughout all of the change…our people are far and away our greatest asset and most important differentiator. Being selected as a finalist is wonderful affirmation that our team feels the respect, care and love that we have for them,” says Jeff Elkin, President.
