ALOM Named one of Top 100 Workplaces by Bay Area News Group
ALOM, a global leader in supply chain management, has been selected as one of The Bay Area News Group’s Top 100 Workplaces. The honor was awarded based solely on employee feedback as gathered in a survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.
“ALOM is extraordinarily proud of this achievement because our employees are our lifeblood and the reason for our success. Without their unerring dedication to quality and innovation, we would not have experienced the growth nor served the caliber of clients that we have,” said ALOM President and CEO Hannah Kain.
ALOM’s culture of quality is demonstrated through its ISO 9001, ISO 13485, TL 9000 certifications. This focus on quality in every step of a complex project and pride in performance are demonstrated and recognized regularly. For example, ALOM conducts regular company meetings where all employees learn about ALOM’s financial performance, key achievements and challenges. They are also the forum for employee recognition.
Diversity and inclusion are also key to ALOM’s workplace culture. “As a woman-owned business enterprise, ALOM prioritizes the value of diversity in thought and background to strengthen our competitive advantage. We respect our employees’ and suppliers’ distinctive contributions, from the perspective they bring to problem solving to team interaction. We believe this results in a more robust and productive environment,” said ALOM Senior Human Resources Manager, Claire Mendonca.
This inclusivity extends to employees’ family. Several times a year ALOM hosts staff celebrations and family-friendly open houses recognizing company milestones such as its 15-year anniversary in 2012, completion of the digital media duplication center, the largest in the U.S., and the opening of an in-house, state-of-the-art digital printing facility.
ALOM’s employee engagement is further reinforced by its commitment to serving in the community. Areas where ALOM and its employees serve include:
- Fremont-based Abode Services and the Sunrise Village homeless shelter
- Silicon Valley Leadership Group, including participation in the annual Silicon Valley Turkey Trot charity race
- Tri-Cities League of Volunteers (LOV) toy drive.
- HOPE Services, providing warehouse job training and employment to adults with developmental disabilities

ALOM’s community engagement also includes support of the performing arts.
ALOM employees participate in national campaigns such as Ford Warriors in Pink, donating proceeds of “Warrior wear and gear” to fight breast cancer.
