NEWSOK: HOW WE DETERMINED OKLAHOMA’S TOP WORKPLACES
This is excerpted from an article written by Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics:
Who determines Top Workplaces? Those who know them best: the employees. The Oklahoman partnered with Philadelphia-based WorkplaceDynamics, the employee research and consulting firm, to determine the region’s Top Workplaces rankings.
Beginning in June, The Oklahoman ran articles and advertisements encouraging employees in the region to nominate companies as Top Workplaces. WorkplaceDynamics invited those companies, as well as other organizations in the region, to participate in the program.
Read more about the methodology here. Below is a quick rundown of how surveys were presented:
The employee survey included 24 questions measuring seven different factors. These factors measured how employees feel about their day-to-day job:
- Alignment — where the company is headed, its values, cooperation
- Effectiveness — doing things well, sharing different viewpoints, encouraging new ideas
- Connection — employees feel appreciated, their work is meaningful
- My Manager — cares about concerns, helps learn and grow
“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,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics.
In addition, the survey asks employees about other factors:
- Employee Engagement — loyalty, motivation, and referral
- Leader — confidence in company leadership
- The Basics — Pay, benefits, flexibility
Statements relating to “Connection” and “Alignment” were among the most important to employees, while statements about pay and benefits rated among the least important.
