The Washington Post announced Closet America as one of the Top Workplaces in the DC-Baltimore metro area for 2017. Closet America has been recognized as a Top Workplace based on surveys completed by their employees. Organizational health is what employees value most in a company—and Closet America’s team members have rated their company as one of the best in the region.
“As an independently owned company, we take great pride in building a positive culture for our team members,” says Skip LaBella, Closet America CEO. “We are honored that our team members enjoy working for Closet America as much as we love providing excellent customer service.”
The candid and confidential evaluations of Closet America employees reveal that they feel appreciated and are completing meaningful work in a positive workplace. Closet America’s employees also rated the company favorably in the following areas:
- Confidence and trust in company leadership
- Employee “buy-in” to the company’s overall direction
- Values and ethics that employees relate to
- Fostering creativity and innovation in the workplace
- Pay and benefits meeting or exceeding employee expectations
- Company culture that creates a positive work/life balance
Not only are 2017’s Top Workplaces rated the best by their employees, these healthy companies have been shown to outperform their peers in a variety of significant areas.
According to WorkplaceDynamics, companies selected as Top Workplaces have outperformed the S&P 500 index by a whopping 16% a year since the program started in October 2008.
Closet America and the other Top Workplaces for 2017 are being recognized in a special edition of the Washington Post this month.
