Grand Rapids, MI – At Service Express, our growth wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our employees. We’re proud of our team, and we’re also excited to announce our organization has been named one of 2017’s Best Small & Medium Workplaces by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE.
This ranking considered 74,000 surveys from employees at hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. Service Express earned a spot on this list based on co-workers’ assessment of the camaraderie, leadership, fairness, rewards and career opportunities enjoyed by all in their workplace. Service Express ranked number 22 among the winning medium organizations.
“We are proud to be recognized as one of 2017’s Best Small & Medium Workplaces.” said Service Express President and CEO Ron Alvesteffer. “At Service Express, the focus on promoting a positive, employee-focused has been the key to our success, so we are happy that feedback from our team members has been so positive.”
Outstanding small and mid-sized employers – as identified by their employees – are substantially more likely to report work experiences linked to retention, innovation and good customer service, according to research by Great Place to Work®. The winning organizations also are more likely than their peers to maintain a healthy organizational culture as they grow larger and more complex.
“The Best Small & Medium workplaces are laying the groundwork for future success by building trust, cooperation and leadership credibility. All of these enhance business performance and create a positive environment for doing business,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®.
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE based on research into employee feedback from Great Place to Work®-Certified™ organizations. Service Express was also ranked as a 2017 Best Workplace in Chicago by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE.
About the Best Small & Medium Workplaces
The ranking was based on anonymous feedback from more than 74,000 employees working at Great Place to Work®-Certified organizations. Employees completed a Trust Index™ survey with more than 50 questions assessing pride, camaraderie, executive effectiveness, innovation, benefits, professional development and other elements of a great workplace. Scores also considered organizations’ performance relative to their size and industry, as well as their ability to provide a great workplace for all employees, regardless of who they are or what they do. Survey results from eligible companies had a 6 percent margin of error, at most, with a 95 percent confidence level. Organizations with 10 to 99 employees were considered for the small workplaces list and those with 100-999 employees were considered for the medium list.
