Earns recognition from the business magazine for seventh time

Corrigan, Texas – Georgia-Pacific has been awarded on the Forbes list of America’s Best Large Employers 2024. This award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on Feb. 13 and can be viewed on the Forbes website.

America’s Best Large Employers have been identified in an independent survey from a vast sample of over 170,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing more than 5,000 people within the U.S.

The final score is based on two types of evaluations. The first is personal, given by employees themselves, also known as direct evaluations. The other is public, given by friends and family members of employees, or members of the public who work in the same industry.

Statista publishes hundreds of worldwide industry rankings and company listings with high-profile media partners. This research and analysis service is based on the success of statista.com, the leading data and business intelligence portal that provides statistics, relevant business data, and various market and consumer studies and surveys.

Georgia-Pacific has 11 facilities in Texas, including seven in East Texas—Diboll Lumber, Diboll Particleboard, Corrigan Plywood, Camden Plywood, Camden Lumber, Pineland Lumber, and a regional sales office. Together these facilities employ approximately 1,800 people. In Texas Georgia-Pacific invests $593 million in total combined compensation and benefits, including direct and indirect jobs, and has made $735 million in capital investments and acquisitions within the state since 2013.

“The employees at our East Texas facilities are keenly focused on meeting and exceeding the needs of our customers,” said Yana Ogletree, Georgia-Pacific Texas Public & Government Affairs Manager. “We are thrilled that our hard work and contributions have made an impact at this level, earning Georgia-Pacific an award from Forbes as one of the best employers in the U.S.” 

“Being recognized on the Forbes list of America’s Best Large Employers is a tremendous honor and a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees,” said Megan Sirna, senior vice president of human resources at Georgia-Pacific. “Our employees and culture are the driving force behind our success. We are proud to have such a talented and committed team that makes Georgia-Pacific a great place to work.”
