Most Influential Women in Arizona: Denise Gredler, BestCompaniesAZ

“Gredler is a thought leader in employer branding, workplace culture and community improvement, best known for helping to create large-scale workplace awards programs, including Arizona’s Most Admired Companies and Top Companies to Work for in Arizona.

“Best decision: ‘After reaching a vice president role leading the first Arizona company to achieve Fortune’s 100 Best Companies status, I gave up the corporate life to start BestCompaniesAZ to better our community through designing employer award programs and connecting employers and job seekers. As I reflect on the past 15 years, it’s humbling to see the impact we’ve had on hundreds of employers, thousands of employees and countless members of our community who experience the benefits of a great place to work culture.’”

The Most Influential Women in Arizona will be honored at a reception from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. on August 23 at Chateau Luxe. For tickets or sponsorship information, click here or call (602) 277-6045.  

A few additional words from the BCAZ team –

Now celebrating its 15th anniversary, BestCompaniesAZ works with a roster of national clients on new ways to enhance their employer brand and continue to attract as well as retain talented employees.

Charitable giving and community partnerships rank exceptionally high on Denise’s list of priorities. As a result, BestCompaniesAZ’s annual Military Career Event has contributed to helping thousands of veterans and their family members find new careers in Arizona.  

Denise is a passionate supporter of The National Celiac Foundation and encourages team members to become involved with causes as well as organizations that are important to them. BestCompaniesAZ has launched a year-long initiative to recognize charities supported by our clients, in addition to making an effort to spread the word about organizations that are successfully helping others.

In the BestCompaniesAZ team’s own words:

“Denise’s tireless efforts have improved the lives and opportunities for countless employees, veterans, jobseekers and community partners. She has identified the most amazing organizations, our clients, with whom we are lucky enough to work each day. They constantly inspire us and also continually raise the bar in achieving workplace excellence. Denise has created an indelible footprint these past 15 years in shaping Arizona workplaces. Being recognized for her influence is an honor that couldn’t go to a more knowledgeable, deserving or compassionate person! Congratulations!!” – Lee, Jocelyn, Stephanie and Lindsay
