Angela Travillian reports:
Locally based Total Quality Logistics and Cintas Corp. are ranked among the nation’s 150 Top Workplaces, chosen by employees in confidential surveys assessing workplace satisfaction.
WorkplaceDynamics polled more than 1 million employees in the largest-ever survey of U.S. companies to rank the top workplaces. Employees were asked a series of questions about how well they feel respected, valued and given opportunities to advance.
Detroit-based Quicken Loans ranked No. 1, followed by The Container Store in Coppell, Texas, and Anadarko Petroleum Corp. of The Woodlands, Texas.
Union Township-based TQL, ranked No. 74. It also was just named one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky by The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management.
The company is growing so fast that it expects to add 300 to 400 new salespeople this year.
“We’re thrilled that the culture and drive we have worked so hard to cultivate since we first opened our doors is being replicated in our national satellite offices,” Kerry Byrne, executive vice president of TQL, said.
Mason-based Cintas, best-known for its corporate identity uniform program, also provides document management services and an array of cleaning and other business support. It ranked No. 94.
“Cintas is honored to have been named one of the top 150 workplaces in the nation, and even more proud of the fact that this honor is the result of input from our own employee-partners,” said Scott D. Farmer, CEO of Cintas.
Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics, said rankings are coveted because they’re determined by employees themselves.
“Our survey is unlike any other ever conducted of American employers,” Claffey said. “The scale of the survey means that we have a real snapshot of what is happening in corporate America.”
WorkplaceDynamics also is conducting the Enquirer Media’s search for top local workplaces. Deadline for nominations is Feb. 22 by going to www.Cincinnati.com/nominate.
Any organization is eligible if it employs at least 50 people in Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky or Southeast Indiana.
WorkplaceDynamics will seek permission to survey employees of nominated companies. Participation is free, and companies will receive feedback from the surveys.
Results will be published in June. Seventy-five companies were ranked last year.
