Fremont, CA – June 26, 2017 – ALOM, a global leader in supply chain management, has been selected for the fourth consecutive year as one of The Bay Area News Group’s Top 100 Workplaces. The award as a 2017 Top Workplace was based solely on employee feedback as gathered in a survey of approximately 6,000 workplaces conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.
“This year ALOM celebrates its 20th anniversary. Achieving this significant milestone has required ALOM to emerge as industry leaders in technology application, process efficiency, and quality management.

“To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees?” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”
Since ALOM’s founding in 1997, Kain has cultivated a transparent and highly trained workplace. Each year, all employees receive a one-page business plan on the direction of the company, as well as its mission, values and principles of doing business. ALOM conducts regular company meetings where all employees learn about the company’s performance, key achievements and challenges. These meetings also provide a forum for employee engagement and recognition.
ALOM trains its people in processes that ensure quality throughout its supply chain and promote the safety and development of each employee. As a company, it has earned internationally recognized process and quality management certifications such as ISO 9001, ISO 13485, and TL 9000. ALOM is FDA registered and Privacy Shield certified.
Additionally, ALOM offers over 100 training courses a year spanning business and technical skills, safety, health and wellness.
ALOM is deeply committed to principals of diversity and social responsibility, which resonate with its employees. “As a woman-owned business enterprise, ALOM respects our employees’ distinctive contributions and encourages a diversity of perspectives.
