Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, has earned a 2019 “Top Workplaces” honor for a mid-size company in the greater Philadelphia region for the 10th year in a row.
Almost 38,000 employees from 169 companies from the Philadelphia area were invited to participate in an anonymous survey conducted by Energage. Participants were asked to rank their employers in several different areas: Alignment, Effectiveness, Connection, My Manager, Employee Engagement, Leader, and The Basics.
Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, believes that the survey not only shows the organizational health of a company, but also what is most important to their employees. Research continues to prove that meaningful work, employee appreciation, and company direction are equally as important as, if not more than, salary and benefits. “Becoming a Top Workplace is an achievement that organizations have to work for,” Claffey said.
“As a company, we not only seek to do what is best for our customers, but also what is best for our employees,” said Marisa Edmund, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “The idea that ‘we are one family’ has always been one of our most important core values since the founding of Edmund Optics, and this core belief drives us to treat our employees and customers with respect, dignity, and appreciation. This achievement is a great honor and we hope to continue to promote a positive company culture and work environment.”
Top Workplaces are about a better way of doing business. Extensive research has shown that organizations that rank in this survey are providing their employees with a great place to work in an environment where they can be more innovative, and in a company that operates more ethically and serves their customers better. Edmund Optics is proud to be included in this group of exceptional organizations. Complete details can be found at www.philly.com/philly/business/workplaces.
