The companies featured on this year’s list are truly extraordinary in their practices and achievements
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 19, 2011
Development Dimensions International, Inc. (DDI) proudly announces a #5 placement on The Great Place to Work® Rankings: 2011 Best Small & Medium Workplaces Presented by Entrepreneur ®. This annual list recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures.
“Being acknowledged as a ‘Great Place to Work’ for the third consecutive year is an honor DDI is very proud of,” said Bob Rogers, President of DDI. “Throughout the past 40 years, we have strived to help our clients to create an engaging and inspiring workplace for their employees, just as we have for ours.”
In its eighth year, the competition is divided into two categories, Small (50-250 employees) and Medium (251-999 employees). Before companies can be named a ‘Great Place to Work,’ they must first be evaluated through an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about their programs and company practices. Great Place to Work then reviews each application using judgment criteria based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
“The companies featured on this year’s list are truly extraordinary in their practices and achievements,” said Susan Lucas-Conwell, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Their leaders recognize the value of creating great workplaces and the competitive edge it provides them.”
Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
In addition to being recognized on Entrepreneur’s Great Place to Work list, DDI was also acknowledged by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as one of the best places to work in Pittsburgh. DDI ranked sixth on the publications’ Top Workplaces list in 2011, which was awarded in early October.
