The Ken Blanchard Companies® Wins 2016 Top Workplaces Award
The San Diego Union-Tribune Names Blanchard® a Winner of the San Diego Top Workplaces Award
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And, oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits," says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together." Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."
Over the last year, Blanchard® launched an initiative to refresh its company vision and values. A new picture of the future and revised set of operating values was rolled out through an employee-driven process. The firm also released a brand-new training program for first-time managers, based on the best-selling book The New One Minute Manager®, and is getting ready to release four product revisions in 2017.
"These are exciting times. We love this business—it's our life's work and our passion. We also love the culture we have built over the past three-plus decades," said Scott Blanchard, Principal and EVP of The Ken Blanchard Companies (http://www.kenblanchard.com/
