Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 19, 2009
Carithers-Wallace-Courtney LLC (CWC), Atlanta's largest office furnishings provider, announces its ascent to the Number 3 position on the Atlanta Business Chronicle's Eighth Annual List of Best Places to Work (medium company category). This highly respected award is based on a quantitative employee survey of human resource values, including team effectiveness, goal alignment and trust of management and coworkers.
Last year, CWC ranked number 18 on the Chronicle's list of Best Places to Work. This year, CWC jumped to the number 3 spot, an enormous milestone, especially in today's down market. What makes the award even more significant is that it is based solely on employee feedback. A recognition of this magnitude is a living testament to CWC's commitment to its people and their dedication to company and customers.
"During an unprecedented downturn in the office furniture industry, our employees have persevered by looking for light and exceeding our customers' expectations. Our employees know that 'Workplace Matters' when it comes to providing enthusiastic service and creating great places to work for our customers and for our employees to enjoy," notes Scott Marshall, CWC Principal and Vice President of Sales & Marketing.
Over 98% of CWC employees participated in the survey for this year's Best Places to Work award. The privately-held company currently has 124 valued employees.
Conducted by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, the 2009 competition included more than 500 nominated companies, a 90 % increase from 2008. Over 67,000 employees in Atlanta were surveyed. Quantum Market Research, Inc. facilitated the collection of anonymous electronic surveys submitted by each competing company's employees. The survey was designed to identify, recognize and honor the companies that recognize their employees as their greatest asset and are committed to maintaining a company culture based on trust in management.
