Barefoot Wins Top Workplace Award

To our employees, the Barefoot family wants to say thank you for making Barefoot and Company a top workplace!

Barefoot and Company has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Charlotte Observer. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together." Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

Over the past eleven years, Workplace Dynamics has surveyed over 16 million employees to determine what truly makes a company a “Top Workplace.” To even be considered for this award, organizations must meet stringent guidelines designed to separate leaders from the pack. This is evidenced by the success of past winners, which include NPR, Microsoft, and HubSpot, just to name a few. When making their determinations, Workplace Dynamics evaluates the entirety of a company’s workplace culture, factoring in Alignment, Execution, and Connection, among many other criteria.

“Receiving this award is a great honor,” says Barefoot and Company’s Laura Barefoot. “We are truly blessed to work with such an amazing team, and we’re humbled by the positive feedback from our employees. If it wasn’t for them, our products would simply sit on a shelf. To our employees, the Barefoot family wants to say thank you for making Barefoot and Company not only a top workplace, but also a leader in the building industry. We couldn’t do it without you.”
