"We are tremendously honored and proud to be named to the top 3 of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For," said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO. "We want to be not just a great company to work for, but a great experience to be part of. We want our staff to be part of an environment of trust, camaraderie, and pride."
The Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures. In compiling the annual ranking, Great Place to Work® evaluates companies using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. Great Place to Work has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with.
"It is no coincidence that the 100 best workplaces are also extremely profitable and successful companies," said China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work. "Research by our firm definitively showcases that the best places to work outperform their competitors. There is an absolute ROI when companies invest in creating a high-trust workplace culture. Great workplaces have significantly less turnover and produce employees who have a vested interest in the company."
Being a best workplace is a key reason Acuity 's 15-year combined ratio is over 8 points better than the industry and its growth over those same years is nearly 2.5 times higher. It's also a dominant factor in ACUITY's continued low voluntary turnover rate of less than 2 percent.
"Being recognized as a top employer validates our day in and day out commitment to build a great workplace and achieve excellence in all that we do," Salzmann said.
Although this is Acuity's first year of eligibility for the list of top employers with more than 1,000 employees, it is not the company's first time being named a great workplace. Previously, Acuity had been eligible for the mid-sized employer list and earned the number one spot five times, including in the company's last year of eligibility. Acuity was named to the mid-sized list for 10 consecutive years.
"Acuity's consistent recognition as a top employer demonstrates our commitment to building and maintaining a great workplace," said Joan Ravanelli Miller, ACUITY General Counsel/Vice President - Human Resources.
