-- The Ken Blanchard Companies®
, a global leader in management training, has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The San Diego Union-Tribune
. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics)
, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.
"Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,"
said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. "Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement."
Out of about 1,530 employers in San Diego County who participated in the employee survey, only 70 of them scored well enough to earn recognition on the Top Workplaces (https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/data-watch/sd-f...
) list. Blanchard®
ranked #11 in the midsized company category. Spotlight Awards were also presented to 12 companies that received recognition in key areas of workplace excellence. Blanchard received the top award in the category for Work Hard/Play Hard (https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/business/sd-fi-top20...
) based on specific survey questions answered by employees. This category reflects feedback that employees have the flexibility they need to balance their work life with their personal life.
"We are honored to receive this award again," said Tom McKee, CEO of The Ken Blanchard Companies (http://www.kenblanchard.com/)
. "As a leadership training company, we strive to develop great people and effective leaders, and create a great place to work. So, to receive this recognition from our employees means a lot to us."
"Becoming a Top Workplace isn't something organizations can buy," Claffey said. "It's an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It's a big deal."About The Ken Blanchard Companies®
