Why Should You Participate
Our “Best Places to Work” programs result in significant organizational benefits for all who participate; both by partnering with Best Companies Group and by taking part in our assessment process.
Program Participants / Survey Participants
Whether or not you think your organization would receive a “Best Place to Work” distinction, we encourage you to participate in one of our many programs. Gathering feedback from your employees will provide you with a baseline so you can see where your organization can improve. Your organization could even make the list! If you do not meet current eligibility requirements for one of our “Best” programs, we offer additional employee survey services to meet your needs. Click here to learn more.
Many organizations participate every year due to the following benefits they receive from the program:
Heightened Organization Pride:
When an organization appears on the “Best Places to Work” list, management, employees, and other stakeholders feel an overwhelming sense of pride within the organization. Many will use the survey program name and logo to create and internally distribute shirts, pins and other kinds of promotional items. The “Best Places to Work” award affirms an employees’ sense of belonging within the organization, therefore increasing employee retention.
Public Relations and Marketing Advantages:
Organizations named to the “Best Places to Work” list can see a tremendous impact on any marketing they conduct. They can use the distinction to enhance their employee recruiting efforts, increase effectiveness of the organization’s general marketing, and improve their reputation in the community, state, or industry.
The Employee Feedback Report – A Management Tool
The results of the survey process prove an invaluable tool for any participating organization, even if they do not make the list of the “Best Places to Work.” After completion of the survey process, all participating organizations have the option to receive the Employee Feedback Report, which includes employee feedback for each survey question, employee comments, and aggregate organizational benchmarks. Benchmarking data, sent soon after the media partner releases the final rankings list, allows organizations to compare their scores to the overall averages of both the list-making organizations as well as all program participants. To conduct this kind of in-depth research independently would normally cost between $5,000 and $10,000 in consulting fees. To view samples of the Employee Feedback Report, please click on Our Tools.
