Irvine, CA—September 20, 2018 GRS Group was recently ranked on Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures list, a comprehensive ranking of U.S.-based businesses exhibiting high-performance cultures created in partnership with employee engagement platform and service provider Energage. The Top Company Cultures list has recognized GRS Group for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations and directly impacts company success.
“GRS Group was founded in 2009 on the principle that strong businesses are built on trust, accountability, and an environment that allows people to reach their full potential,” said CEO Chuck Victor. “We have always believed in integrity as a prerequisite for the success we seek. From the beginning we were determined to create a culture that would reward the employees for their productivity and their creativeness at our company.”
“We think of work as fun, and by that we mean thoroughly engaging, challenging, rewarding and enjoyable,” says Noreen Clindinning, President of GRS Group. “Our culture is energetic, collaborative and thrives on a passion for individual and collective excellence. And we have always believed in the power of making a difference wherever we work and live. At the core of our business are GRS Group’s Values: Act with Integrity, Honor our Commitments, Strive for Excellence and Have Fun at Work. Our values are not simply statements of principle or aspirations for what we endeavor to achieve—they are bonds that connect us in everything we do.”
“Great company cultures don’t happen by accident. They happen because leaders understand how to create excellent working environments, and how to make everyone share the same mission,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “Our 2018 Top Company Cultures list is a great celebration of companies that are doing it right, and should serve as inspiration for everyone who leads a team.”
The full list, presenting a total of 150 companies categorized as small, midsize or large companies—with 74 or fewer employees, 75-299 employees and more than 300 employees respectively— is available on Entrepreneur.com. Core insights, behaviors and attributes that have helped to shape the high-performing cultures presented by the top companies are shared alongside practices to help other companies develop their own workplace environments.
“Becoming a Top Company Cultures winner isn’t something an organization can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “It’s an achievement organizations have to work for. Based on our decade of research, we have come to view workplace culture is the only remaining sustainable competitive business advantage. Great strategies can be copied, but culture cannot.”
Employees took online surveys, and the honorees were determined and ranked based solely on their survey feedback scores. Each company was measured in response to 24 questions on subject matters such as connection, alignment, effectiveness, leadership and management, as well as basics such as pay, benefits and flexibility.
To be considered for the ranking, the companies must have had at least 35 employees, have been founded before Jan. 1, 2016, must be founder led (at least 10% ownership of the company),and be headquartered in the U.S. There was no cost to participate in the survey. Individual employee responses were anonymous.
