Verisys Corporation has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Salt Lake Tribune. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. Employees answers questions related to company values, feeling appreciated, meaningful work, managers and supervisors, being able to share new and different viewpoints, employee engagement, confidence in the company leaders, pay and benefits, schedule flexibility, and where the company is headed.
On Friday, November 8, 2019 Jamie Harper, Verisys COO, and Amy Andersen, VP of Operations, accepted The Salt Lake Tribune’s Top Workplaces Award for midsize companies in Utah on behalf of Verisys Corporation.
“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research also shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”
Feedback from the Energage surveys identified that the top 3 culture drivers in Utah were appreciation, potential, and direction. Energage found that employees consistently rate “connection” and “alignment” as most important, while pay and benefits surprisingly rate as less important to them. Employees at Utah companies want to feel like their contributions matter and see the opportunities for career development within their organization.
Mark Schaerrer, Director of HR for Verisys, says, “Our aim as an HR department is to be as proactive as possible in addressing the needs of our people and our organization. We do this by removing roadblocks and embracing an agile culture throughout Verisys. Our culture empowers people to tackle the everyday challenges they face, and it allows for both learning opportunities and growth so they can advance their careers within our company.”
Verisys is honored to accept this Top Workplaces award from the Salt Lake Tribune. We believe that having a positive company culture impacts everything from job satisfaction, to an employee’s loyalty and longevity, to overall company success. The company could not accomplish its goals and growth without the efforts of every member of the team.
