Does Being a "Top Workplace" Have an Impact on Your Bottom Line?
Recently, the digital sector has seen some of the biggest growth in not only financial success, but employee satisfaction as well.
I’ve been looking at some of the more successful digital companies here in Chicago – many of which belong to the technology industry – and have wondered if there’s a correlation between being a “Top Workplace” and that company’s bottom line. In an industry where human capital drives products, experiences and services, every advantage to acquire talent is worth its weight in gold. To have individuals desire to work for you based on your culture and overall workplace environment is an incredibly powerful asset.
The majority of “Top Workplace” organizations have received accolades and awards as a direct result of their company culture. While winning awards is great, the true value lies in what they afford the companies. The real reward that comes from such acknowledgement is the ability to make it easier for companies to attract and retain top talent. Better talent results in better ideas, better products and, ultimately, a better bottom line.
Assurance leads our industry in organic growth in large part to our ability to bring in top talent and in turn bring on great clients. That talent is brought on for a number of reasons, and I’m certain being a “Top Workplace” is a driving factor. We search out those that want to go the extra mile, not just for us, but for our clients as well. Employees who appreciate our culture are happy employees. Those employees then serve clients who in turn are happy about the service they receive. A win for both our company and clientele.
If you’d like to brainstorm ideas for becoming a “Top Workplace,” please catch up with Joe Spallina at the upcoming ITA Burb Bash in Schaumburg on February 11. For questions about the event, email Joe.
