Hobbs, NM- Sunday, May 15, 2016 – Pettigrew & Associates has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Albuquerque Journal. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
“While day-to-day operations are crucial to the firm’s existence and company well-being, “says Pettigrew President & CEO Debra Hicks, “we believe our employees – as family – always come first. Our people are clearly our greatest asset. That same belief and Pettigrew culture extends beyond our employees and embraces the spouses, children, and other family members of our associates, giving us what we believe is a competitive advantage in today’s business world.”
