5 Notable Reasons Middough is One of NEOs Top Workplaces

Cleveland Honored to Be Chosen as a Top Workplace in NEO for the Second Year in a Row.


For the second consecutive year, the Cleveland Plain Dealer has named Middough, Inc.’s corporate office located in Cleveland, Ohio as one of Northeast Ohio’s Top Workplaces for 2022. Middough’s Toledo office has been named a recipient of the Top Workplaces Award by The Blade, a Toledo newspaper, for the fourth consecutive year.  

The winners of the Top Workplaces Award are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, a culture technology firm specializing in employee engagement and workplace improvement research. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. The survey has been helpful in providing feedback on what our employees are satisfied with, and what we can work on to ensure we remain a Top Workplace in Cleveland. We are honored to know that our employees, also referred to as our greatest assets, have been beyond satisfied for 2 years in a row.

“Our Cleveland office being named a Top Workplace for the second year in a row, following four consecutive honors for our Toledo Office, is an incredible testament to Middough’s people and our culture,” said Middough Chairman and CEO Ron Ledin. “Wins like this reinforce the belief that the culture we have at Middough of maintaining best-in-class recruiting and retention, career pathing, mentoring and incentives is resonating with our team. We plan to continue to grow by cultivating a team of people who represent the core values of Middough by being professional, taking initiative, honoring commitments, continuously improving and by sustaining resources.” 

A great workplace cares about its clients and supports its employees while challenging them to grow with the company through a shared commitment to individual and corporate success.
