SAN DIEGO - Dec. 5, 2017 - PRLog -- The Ken Blanchard Companies®, a global leader in management training, was named one of San Diego's Top Workplaces in 2017 by The San Diego Union-Tribune. The Top Workplaces lists are derived solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, formerly known as WorkplaceDynamics, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Among the aspects of workplace culture that were measured are alignment, execution, and connection.

"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 Energage. "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."

"We are honored to receive this recognition," said Howard Farfel, President of The Ken Blanchard Companies. "Everyone wants to work in a motivating work environment where they feel valued and a part of something bigger than themselves. We help clients around the world create engaged and productive workplaces, so we strive to be the kind of company we teach about. It's important to us to make a difference in the lives of our employees as well as our clients. I believe the meaningful work we do makes our employees proud to be a part of the Blanchard® organization."

Implementing its refreshed vision and values, as the result of an employee-driven process, Blanchard released four program revisions over the last year and announced its new website ( that makes it easier for visitors to find valuable information to address their management challenges. In the coming year, Blanchard will prepare to implement process-improvement initiatives based on employee feedback.
