Vienna, Virginia (June 27th, 2017) – MicroHealth, LLC has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication’s second annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.
Hitting newsstands in the June 2017 issue, and as part of a prominent inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies.
Built in partnership with employee engagement and work culture experts Quantum Workplace of Omaha, Nebraska, Inc.’s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent.
What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes the two work together.
“It’s a real privilege to be recognized by Inc. as one of the Best Places to work. This is by far the most important recognition for the company as it is how our employees view us. It also demonstrates our undying commitment to customer service not only externally but internally. It’s a credit to the culture of the company which is driven by the one team atmosphere of our employees. We thank Inc. for this recognition but more importantly our employees who are the lifeblood of the organization.” Dr. Frank Tucker, CEO
The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop:
Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
Workers at the best companies don’t view their employers as sugar daddies. They aren’t mesmerized by whatever giveaways seem to be the latest fad—be it gourmet lunches or beer fridges.
When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.
As a small organization, the executives are heavily involved with the day to day operations they are always accessible and willing to provide their expertise to anyone that asks.
Employees can learn, grow and more importantly, cross train. There are times when one may feel stagnant in their role and want to learn another job because of its increased demand, or just interested in expanding their personal knowledge, at MicroHealth we embrace transferable skills.
“By introducing an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.” says Eric Schurenberg, Inc.’s President and Editor In Chief.
