INSIDE BUSINESS NAMES WHRO PUBLIC MEDIA A WINNER OF THE HAMPTON ROADS TOP WORKPLACES 2019 AWARD
Norfolk, VA – WHRO Public Media has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by Inside Business. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third- party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
“We couldn’t be more proud,” said Bert Schmidt, President and CEO of WHRO Public Media. “We empower our staff to be able to make decisions that have an impact on the work we produce. We try to be flexible and listen to the needs of our employees.” “Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
