In this day and age, a workplace is more than just an office space. Most of us will end up spending more time at an office than we do with our own families. That’s why workplaces with enhanced benefits, special perks, and greater flexibility are winning over job candidates and increasing employee retention. More and more companies are making workplace culture a top priority and are being recognized for it with external awards, but more importantly, employee loyalty.
Recently, OptConnect was named a Top Workplace of Utah
by the Salt Lake Tribune. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. Being a company that does everything we can to make OptConnect a safe, fun, and engaging workplace for our employees, this award holds a tremendous amount of value for us because it is a result of employees speaking praise about their unique experiences.
By recruiting the very best people and then empowering and rewarding them for supporting our customers, we have created a winning culture that is continuously fueled by each employee's efforts. As we take better care of our employees, they, in turn, take better care of our customers, and the business is rewarded. Our valued employees are the key to our incredible growth.
