Aviagen was recently named one of the 20 best places to work in Huntsville, Alabama, by online career expert Zippia. Each year Zippia publishes its top 20 ranking, and Aviagen made the list for 2018. The metrics include salary, company financial health and employee diversity (race, gender, education and politics).
Global Vice President of Human Resources Angela Wilson explained that Aviagen’s HR approach is to recruit and retain the right talent for the right job from a diverse candidate pool.
“We believe that diversity and inclusion are key to our success as a global company, and our workforce reflects this diversity at all job levels throughout our organization. For Aviagen, our people represent our most important resources, and we invest purposefully in attracting, retaining and developing our valued employees.”
“Throughout the years working with job seekers, we've found that working in a diverse, stimulating, and welcoming environment makes a big difference in employees' lives," said Henry Shao, CEO and co-founder of Zippia. “I would like to congratulate Aviagen for their outstanding achievement and for being ranked as one of the Best Places to Work in Huntsville.”
"Unlike most ranking systems, Zippia relies on unbiased data instead of opinions to understand companies. We use real data from real sources, like the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and we consider the factors that employees really care about, like how well a job pays," added Chris Kolmar, VP of Marketing and co-founder.
