Fortune Names TQL Among 50 Best Companies For Camaraderie
Just found a nice little gift under the tree.
Fortune magazine named Total Quality Logistics one of its 2015 Best Workplaces for Camaraderie today (Dec. 22).
Yes we can all get along.
Turns out selectively hiring an elite team from diverse backgrounds and experiences - then uniting them by the common goal of success - can lead to building a workforce of people who genuinely like one another.
Well, this guy for one…
“Companies that develop strong personal ties among employees and make time for fun at work aren’t just doing it to be nice,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. “It’s a critical strategic investment. Workplaces with strong camaraderie are associated with higher levels of cooperation, effort and effective communication - all essential ingredients of a high-performing organization.”
Fortune selected winners based on evaluations by more than 255,000 randomly selected employees from nearly 600 participating companies.
Employees anonymously answered questions about the quality of the personal connections they experience with colleagues, how comfortable people feel being themselves, how friendly, cooperative and fun the workplace is, as well as the strength of its teams.
Earlier this year Fortune named TQL one of its Best Places to Work for Millennials.
The camaraderie nod is the second national award TQL collected this month, joining Glassdoor’s 2016 Employee’s Choice win announced Dec. 9.
