February 5, 2021 – Sargent & Lundy is proud to announce it has earned a 2021 Top Workplaces USA honor. It is the inaugural year for the national award, hosted by Top Workplaces, LLC.
The awards are based solely on feedback gathered through anonymous employee engagement surveys from more than 1,100 organizations. Survey questions are centered on workplace culture aspects proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.
Sargent & Lundy’s survey results show clear signs its employees feel engaged, appreciated, and fulfilled. One employee commented, “Every employee is valued and has a voice. Participation, new ideas, and thinking outside norms to problem-solve and adapt are very welcome.” The survey responses also indicate employees believe the company is going in the right direction, it operates efficiently and well, and senior managers understand what’s really happening at the firm. Approximately 82% of Sargent & Lundy’s employees participated in the survey.
“Receiving this Top Workplace USA honor means even more in 2021. Our employees have collectively redefined many facets of our culture while working remotely during a pandemic,” said Sargent & Lundy Chairman, President & CEO Tom White. “They’ve been so efficient and resilient! We give all our employees a virtual ‘high five’ to thank them for this award.”
Energage, the third-party research partner who administered the survey, recently announced the award recipient list. Its research shows that top-tier Top Workplace organizations experience a 42% higher employee retention rate and 2.3 times the employee engagement levels compared to other organizations.
"During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business."
