“What better way for Energage to celebrate Women’s History Month than to recognize those woman-led organizations across the country that have made a positive impact on the workplace by prioritizing people,” said Lisa Sordilla, vice president of human resources for Energage. “Each day, we are seeing women raise the bar in the workplace and it’s an honor to recognize these well-deserving organizations with the Woman-Led Culture Excellence award. Through this recognition, we hope to give woman-led companies the credit they deserve and support their continued growth by showcasing their outstanding commitment to employees.”

A people-first culture pays great dividends — and that’s more important than ever.
Leaders at Top Workplaces know that a people-first culture pays dividends, especially in times of uncertainty. Their best employees are engaged, motivated to give their best, and they want to stay put. Not to mention, being able to say “I work for a Top Workplace!” gives them a great sense of pride and a much-needed morale boost.

The national Top Workplaces program includes USA, Industry, and Culture Excellence awards

The national Top Workplaces program – including an annual USA award as well as quarterly Industry and Culture Excellence awards – is an expansion of the prestigious Top Workplaces regional program that recognizes the best places to work in more than 55 major U.S. markets.

One engagement survey qualifies organizations for all Top Workplaces awards

All Top Workplaces awards are based solely on feedback captured by the Energage Workplace Survey, a research-backed employee engagement survey. Participating organizations are evaluated against the industry’s most robust benchmark, based on 15 years of research and data from 70,000 organizations and 23 million employee surveys.

Additional Culture Excellence Awards to be announced in April

Next month, Energage will announce the winning organizations of four additional Culture Excellence awards: Appreciation, Values, Direction, and Empowering Employees. These Top Workplaces, along with the Woman-Led winners, will be recognized and celebrated for earning these employer awards at a virtual presentation on April 27th and the lists will be published on the Top Workplaces website.
