“Our team members are the backbone of Champion." - Michelle Yeager-Thornton, Co-Founder of Champion
Westerville, OH (PRWEB) October 09, 2016
The Champion Companies was recently named one of Central Ohio’s Best Places to Work by Columbus Business First.
The annual Best Places to Work competition conducted by Columbus Business First draws hundreds of nominations from which 50 companies are honored, 10 in each of the five company size categories: micro, small, medium, large and extra large companies.
"We could not be happier about being a Best Place to Work in Central Ohio," said Kelli Berner, Champion's human resources director. "As a small, but growing company, maintaining employee satisfaction is always top of mind for us, and it is reassuring that our efforts are noticed and appreciated."
To determine the Best Places to Work in Central Ohio, Business First collaborates with Quantum Workplace to conduct employee satisfaction surveys for each nominee. Anonymous surveys are distributed through email to collect feedback and then scores are tallied to determine overall employee satisfaction.
Out of the 80 Champion team members who were eligible to be surveyed, per the requirements of Quantum Workplace, 71 gave their feedback, an impressive 89 percent response rate.
“Our team members are the backbone of Champion. Without all of their hard work, we would not be where we are today,” said Michelle Yeager-Thornton, co-founder and COO of The Champion Companies. “It is a rewarding feeling, knowing that they are as happy to work at Champion as we are to have them on our team.”
So far in 2016, Champion has grown to 97 team members. The company will learn where it is ranked among the 10 winning medium-sized companies at the annual awards luncheon on November 10.
