The list, which will publish in the magazine’s May/June 2020 issue, features top American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.
G&A Partners was one of 2,500 companies to participate in the employee survey conducted by Quantum Workplace. The survey was sent to G&A’s nearly 400 employees who were asked to rate G&A on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future.
Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data before ranking all of the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5% of employees working for the 395 finalist companies surveyed said they were engaged by their work.
“The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work,” Inc. says. “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.’”
G&A Partners prides itself on having an engaging and transparent work culture. Happy employees take good care of clients, which is why G&A enjoys a 93% client-retention rate and a Net Promoter Score that is 30-times higher than PEO-industry standards.
“At G&A Partners, we recognize that culture is more than a set of beliefs. Our culture IS our employees. It’s everything we do to champion every individual’s experience through all stages of their employment life cycle. We start by putting people first, ensure they love what they do, commit to creating phenomenal experiences, lead by example, and communicate constantly and openly,” says Michelle Mikesell, G&A’s Vice President of Corporate HR.
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes among the standout companies:
“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.”
