Men's Wearhouse announced that for the 12th time since 2000, the company has been named one of FORTUNE magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For." The company's commitment to fostering a corporate culture dedicated to training, celebrating, and fulfilling the potential of all employees helped Men's Wearhouse jump to No. 50 on the list, up from No. 55 last year.

Men's Wearhouse has taken great measures to implement unique training and recognition programs that promote and encourage employees' development and success, including:

- Integrating employee training and development into the company's corporate culture
- Fostering a strong appreciation for its on-site tailors
- Providing fully paid sabbaticals and vacation time, a rare offering among retailers
- Honoring distribution center workers through an Employee of the Month program

"I founded this company 40 years ago on the belief that employees should enjoy coming to work every day," said George Zimmer, Men's Wearhouse Founder and Executive Chairman.

"Throughout our history, we've always recognized that our employees are the heart of this company and responsible for driving the quality of the customer experience and success of the brand. It is with the deepest gratitude that we acknowledge the thousands of dedicated Men's Wearhouse employees who have made this recognition possible."

"At Men's Wearhouse, our vision statement is to strive every day to provide world-class service to our customers and each other," said Doug Ewert, Men's Wearhouse President and CEO. "This accolade belongs to our employees who exemplify the exceptional customer service that has become synonymous with the Men's Wearhouse brand. Their energy, commitment, and dedication across all levels of the organization are what make our company successful."
