The Top Workplaces lists are based solely 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 year, Isdaner & Company is celebrating 50 years in business. The firm was founded in 1967 to create a more personal relationship with clients and to foster a meaningful work experience for employees. “The management team always envisioned the company as a family and infused the workplace with care and respect for the people working here. That work experience continues today. We are thrilled with the response of our team to the survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics and being named a Top Workplace for 2017,” Scott Isdaner, managing member, explained.
