August 10, 2016 – At ENGEO, we don’t just stand behind our work. We stand behind the people who make it possible.
A positive work environment is essential to a healthy business and has been a central component of our success. So we’re proud to announce that ENGEO has earned a place among of the country’s Best Small and Medium Workplaces recently announced by consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
ENGEO won this accolade based on employees’ anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride and camaraderie at work. Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process. Among the findings from the study: trust fuels business performance. For example, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces enjoy roughly three times the revenue growth of their peers, while providing a better experience for their people.
“It was surreal and humbling to be in a room full of like-minded companies that value culture. It was an honor to represent ENGEO and to be recognized for our culture,” says Bob Boeche, Principal Engineering Geologist and ENGEO’s San Jose office leader.
Says one employee, “ENGEO provides such a liberating workplace – we are constantly encouraged to grow professionally and personally, and we have few, if any, limits to pursue our intellectual passions. My colleagues and our leadership create a culture where we all have an active role in growing the company and expanding how we provide value to clients.”
ENGEO’s president, Uri Eliahu, adds, “We’ve always made it a priority to create a climate where talented people are empowered to achieve to their full potential, where our people have the opportunity to grow every day, and where we continuously expand the horizons of ENGEO. This philosophy ultimately leads us to personal and collective success.”
ENGEO came in 24th on the list of 100 medium sized companies.
“There’s a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Small and Medium workplaces—one that has a measurable return,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. “Whether it’s funding employee ‘passion projects’ or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue.”
The Best Small and Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified TM organizations.
This is the 10th consecutive year that ENGEO has made the list of best workplaces named by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
About The Best Small and Medium Workplaces
Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees’ personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all – not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
