THE PLAIN DEALER NAMES L’NIQUE SPECIALTY LINEN RENTAL A WINNER OF THE 2018 TOP WORKPLACES AWARD FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW
Valley View, Ohio; June 21, 2018 – L’Nique Specialty Linen Rental has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Plain Dealer for the third year in a row. L’Nique also placed third out of seventy-five Northeast Ohio companies in the small business division rankings this year after placing first in 2017 and seventh in 2016.
The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
Co-owners and founders of L’Nique, Angela Klodnick and Deidre Dockman, have been blown away by this recognition. “When we started L’Nique back in 1998, we wanted both our clients and employees to feel the passion we had for serving the Northeast Ohio community.” says Klodnick. “Through the 20 years we have been in business, we have strongly believed in the core values of fun, flexibility and family and do everything we can to make those palpable to all that walk into our building. Our passion for helping others is what makes us the company we are today – and ultimately, it is all of our employees that fuel that passion.”
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement that organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
Klodnick and Dockman hope to capitalize on that competitive advantage as L’Nique kicks off the celebration of 20 years in business this summer. After starting their company in Klodnick’s garage in 1998, L’Nique now operates two showrooms – including a new, collaborate space in the heart of downtown Cleveland – as well as a 16,000 square foot warehouse in Valley View. Their 43 employees come from a variety of backgrounds, most having extensive special event industry expertise.
Dockman says, “We have brought together some of the most experienced, most knowledgeable and most genuine individuals we could have ever imagined, all under one roof. While Angela and I may lead the way, it is their time and talents that make L’Nique such a special place. We cannot thank our entire team enough for their endless efforts to bring L’Nique to Greater Cleveland – and beyond.”About L’Nique Specialty Linen Rental
