The 7th Annual Great Place to Work® Rankings: 2010 Best Small & Medium Workplaces Presented by Entrepreneur® was announced today, and Root Learning, headquartered in Sylvania, ranked 13th. The list represents the best workplaces, separated into two categories: small companies with 50-250 employees and medium companies with 251-999 employees. The Great Place to Work® Institute, based in San Francisco, produces the Best Small & Medium Workplaces list each year. This is the sixth year in a row that Root Learning has made the list.

“Making the Great Place to Work list is the work of an entire team. It embodies the passion, talent, values, hard work, and the pioneering spirit of all of our people who contribute the best of themselves every day at Root,” says CEO James Haudan. “Clients often tell us that the quality of our people and their ability to bring competence and realism with informality and caring sets us apart. We strive to live our values of Creative Excellence, Servant Leadership, Giving, Fun, Authenticity, and Engagement in our work with one another and in the marketplace every day.”

Root Learning was selected for this list by participating in the Great Place to Work® Institute’s selection process, which includes a survey of Root employees based on the Trust Index© and a completed questionnaire about programs and company practices. The Great Place to Work® Institute evaluated the company based on credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. The Institute’s unique methodology measures the level of trust that exists between employees and management, the pride employees express about the company, and the camaraderie employees share.

“Trust-based workplace cultures make a better place to work for employees and create a competitive advantage for the organization,” said Ricardo Lange, President of Great Place to Work® Institute. “All of the companies selected for the Great Place to Work® Rankings: 2010 Best Small & Medium Workplaces Presented by Entrepreneur® have cultivated a trust-based work culture and accomplished a lot of hard work to make it onto the list.”
