Check out the Top Workplaces In America List. There are admittedly numerous national and local lists of “Best Places to Work,” but for various reasons I find the Workforce Dynamics process to produce more accurate results than many other efforts. I know, and in some cases, represent some of these companies. They earned their place on the list through purposeful efforts to guarantee employees good treatment, involvement, and communications… often in Innovative ways.
I can also tell you that some of these companies lead the lists of “Companies Sued Over Employment Claims Less Than Other Members of Their Industry.”
I am especially proud of recurrent winner, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and RaceTrac Petroleum… two Atlanta companies in vastly different industries (pediatric healthcare vs. convenience stores!). Obviously they have something in common.
Wonder if there is a connection? I also believe that these employers spent quite a bit of money and time to attain these work cultures, and I also suspect that a hard analysis of savings in legal fees probably alone justify the efforts. Just a thought….
