SAN FRANCISCO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--The 7th Annual Great Place to Work® Rankings: The 50 Best Small & Medium Workplaces Presented by Entrepreneur® was announced today featuring successful workplaces from around the country who have between 25 and 999 employees and whose employees overwhelmingly agree with the statement “all things considered, this is a great place to work.” The #1 Medium Workplace is Wisconsin-based financial services & insurance company ACUITY and the #1 Small Workplace is Rochester-based communications firm Dixon Schwabl – both organizations have appeared on the list for the last seven and six years, respectively.
“All of the companies selected for the Great Place to Work® Rankings have succeeded in cultivating a trust-based work environment”
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces undergo a rigorous assessment in order to be ranked. This process includes administering the Great Place to Work® Institute Trust Index® employee survey and completing an audit of the company’s culture, revealing the company-wide programs and practices that set the workplace apart.
“All of the companies selected for the Great Place to Work® Rankings have succeeded in cultivating a trust-based work environment,” said Ricardo Lange, President of Great Place to Work® Institute. “Having a culture of trust benefits the organization on every level; employees are more innovative, creative, loyal, demonstrate respect, and genuinely care about each other and about the company. What is good for the workplace is also good for the business and many of these companies also enjoy better client retention and customer satisfaction. Being a great workplace is good for everyone.”
Says Dave Pomije, VP of Site Development at Entrepreneur.com, “From instilling a creative company culture to offering one-of-a-kind perks, entrepreneurs are able to break the mold with their workplaces. We feature companies doing it every day—and reaping the numerous rewards for their brands and bottom lines. With the Great Places to Work® Rankings, we’ll be able to bring more of their visionary ideas to light to inspire other small-business owners with unique ways to engage their own employees and build success.”
