National Top Workplace awards are open to all companies with over 150 U.S. employees that encompass a people-centric ethos, prioritize staff wellbeing, and attract top talent and new business opportunities.

I admire the commitment I see in them and in our HR team to make sure AD is a great place to work every day.”

“The recognition from our associates as a great place to work is incredibly meaningful to us,” said Neil Cohen, AD’s chief people officer. “It confirms that our continuous efforts to create a supportive and dynamic environment resonate with our team. I’m grateful to our associates for transparently sharing their feedback with us, allowing us to identify our strengths, celebrate achievements, and learn about areas where we can still improve.”
