Whatever it is that makes a workplace thrive, employees know it best. That is why we are proud to have been chosen by our employees as a Top Workplace in Connecticut. The Top Workplaces lists are based on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
“This is the first year we have participated in the survey and we are honored to be listed as a 2016 Top Workplace,” said David Campbell, Ring’s End’s President and CEO. “Our people make Ring’s End successful, so it’s important that we continue to improve our work environment. We are committed to delivering an exceptional experience for our customers and the only way we can do that is if our people are excited and happy about working at Ring’s End.”
