Certification validates internal culture where
employees feel “welcome” and “proud”
Based on employee feedback on the Trust Index® Survey, Ubiquity has been recognized as a Great Place to Work®-Certified company. This award validates the commitment that Ubiquity employees and leadership have made to the company’s core values of Partnership, Innovation, and Community. From a thorough onboarding process to encouraging team cooperation and promoting individual career growth, Ubiquity’s culture has become a strong differentiator in the business process outsourcing industry.
“Ensuring employee satisfaction has been one of our central tenets since we founded Ubiquity in 2012,” said Matt Nyren, president and CEO. “From the start, we believed that a happy workplace is more productive and a key differentiator in attracting the best talent in the industry. We have found that empowering employees to be in control of their careers reaps many benefits, as our company growth is a direct result of every employee’s personal growth.”
The foundation of the Great Place to Work recognition is a survey that employees complete anonymously. The candid answers create a profile of the day-to-day work environment analyzed through a sixty-factor Trust Index® that compares employees’ responses and comments in the subject company to the best workplaces in the country.
After the results were tallied up, 76% of Ubiquity employees participating in the survey said the company is “a great place to work.” The average U.S.-based company has only 59% of its employees agreeing with that statement. The Great Place to Work survey results also break down the data to identify more particular company strengths. The survey discovered that Ubiquity employees agreed strongly with these statements:
- I am given the resources and equipment to do my job. (87%)
- When you join the company, you are made to feel welcome. (86%)
- I’m proud to tell others I work here. (86%)
- People celebrate special events around here. (86%)
- I am treated as a full member here regardless of my position. (84%)
- I can be myself around here. (84%)
The Great Place to Work (GPTW) survey platform enables business leaders to leverage important feedback for driving future employee initiatives and guiding employee policy responsiveness. The GPTW results also highlight opportunities for companies to respond to areas where the takeaways were not so favorable.
The GPTW certification has meaning beyond the formal company recognition and benchmarking. Studies show that certification correlates highly with other favorable business objectives. For instance, GPTW-certified employers are four times more successful at attracting, retaining, and engaging talent than the average U.S. workplace. In addition, employees at certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and employees have twice the opportunities for promotion.
“This recognition validates our work to ensure that every member of our team feels supported, appreciated, and included,” said Tanya Clark, senior vice president of human resources. “We stress a strong people-centric culture, so it is heartening to see that it has taken root in the company. I am particularly proud of our onboarding and training processes, which leave 85% of employees feeling ‘welcome’ when joining Ubiquity.”
