This challenging time with our entire global team working remotely from home has brought the real meaning of 'Best Workplace' into stark relief. Our physical offices and all of the perks that come with them are great, but our greatest resource has and always will be our people.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 08, 2020
Movable Ink has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. Hitting newsstands May 12 in the May/June 2020 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.
During this new era of working from home, Movable Ink has strived to maintain remote learning and development, mental health, cultural activities, and other initiatives that have built a strong office community. Staying connected daily and keeping weekly town hall meetings remain a top priority to ensure continued employee engagement and teamwork. Over 98% of Movable Ink’s employees were moderately or highly engaged by their work, according to the Quantum Workplace employee survey, and most felt that they were valued by the organization and had future career opportunities.
"This challenging time with our entire global team working remotely from home has brought the real meaning of 'Best Workplace' into stark relief. Our physical offices and all of the perks that come with them are great, but our greatest resource has and always will be our people," said Vivek Sharma, CEO of Movable Ink. "The team's collaborative spirit, relentless grit to get things done, and empathy everyone has shown for one other and our clients — despite not being together — spotlight what truly makes Movable Ink a great place to work."
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 389 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then they ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 100 percent provide health insurance.
- 50 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 62 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 20 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
