Advance is Granted 2021 National Top Workplaces Award
Advance Business Systems is proud to announce that it is a recipient of the 2021 National Top Workplaces award. This award celebrates nationally recognized companies that “make the world a better place to work by prioritizing a people-centered culture and giving employees a voice.” Organizations awarded were recognized for their commitment to strong values, communication between employees and management, innovation and efficiency based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures employee responses in 15 categories that are critical to the cultural success of any organization. This year’s survey results are especially significant as businesses faced unprecedented challenges due to the pandemic.
“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
“While we are proud of all the awards that Advance receives, being a Top Workplace is especially meaningful. In addition to providing extraordinary customer experiences, our mission and culture place a huge emphasis on the members of our Advance family. This award is affirmation that we are on the right track in this never–ending journey,” says President, Jeff Elkin.
