Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
Renewable Choice Energy today announced that it has been recognized by Colorado Biz Magazine as one of Colorado’s 20 “perk”-iest companies. The company received the recognition for its emphasis on workplace flexibility alongside benefits that allow employees to capitalize on life in Colorado.
The Colorado Biz program, which recognized companies from a wide-spectrum of industries including high tech, financial services, healthcare, and marketing, segregated the winning companies into five perk areas. The program noted that many of the perky companies could have been recognized in multiple categories, highlighting that Colorado companies are going above and beyond to attract and retain top talent.
Providing incentives has historically proven to improve employee satisfaction and engagement, which directly influences a company’s bottom line. According to the Colorado Biz article, a 10 percent investment in employee engagement has the potential to raise profits by $2,400 per employee annually. Results of extensive research on employee engagement by the Gallup organization indicate that engagement is one of the key metrics to determining an organization’s profitability.
“Providing a flexible work environment for our staff has consistently proven to increase our productivity while allowing us to retain key staff members year-over-year,” said Renewable Choice CEO Quayle Hodek. “We’re able to achieve improvements in efficiency while simultaneously contributing to employee satisfaction.”
In addition to flexible and work-from-home schedules, the company also provides unique perks like Superbowl Monday, a winter holiday devoted to getting employees to ski areas when they will not be as busy, and half-day summer Fridays to encourage staff members to take a long weekend. An employee-initiated—but company-funded--“hot sauce bar” is heavily patronized. The result for Renewable Choice has been a historic voluntary turnover rate of less than 10 percent annually and an average staff tenure length of seven years.
“It’s exciting for us to be recognized in this way,” said Amy Haddon, VP of Communications for Renewable Choice. “We take great care to make our workplace a positive, autonomous place to be.”
