All participating companies completed a two-part assessment process conducted by the independent workplace research firm, Best Companies Group (BCG). Part one of the process was the Employer Questionnaire, two was the Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey which measured the employee experience in 8 core focus areas: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training, Development and Resources, Pay and Benefits, and Overall Engagement. Using the combined data from both parts of the survey process, BCG determined the top 100 organizations that made the grade.
“This Top Company list gets more competitive each year,” says Denise Gredler, Founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and consulting partner for the program, “The list of winners had very impressive employee survey results averaging an overall favorable rate of 90 percent, which is more than double the national average. These winners should be very proud of their engaged workforces. This presents a powerful opportunity for award – winners to promote their company culture to retain and attract the best talent.”
“It’s such an honor for MC to receive this award and recognition on behalf of our team members. The fact that this award is heavily based on employee satisfaction makes this accomplishment something we are very proud of. We are passionate about providing the good life to our employees as well as our customers and this award reflects that we are one of the leading real estate companies to live, work and play at in Arizona,” says Michelle Sinclair, Director of Operations at MC Companies.
