Torch Named One of the Country’s Best Workplaces in Consulting and Professional Services
Torch Technologies is proud to announce that our company has been recognized for the second consecutive year as one of the country’s Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services by consultancy Great Place to Work and Fortune.
Torch Technologies ranked no. 26 on the Best Workplaces list. The results draw from surveys of 36,750 employees who assessed their firms’ leadership, benefits, camaraderie, work-life balance and other factors essential to a happy, high-functioning team. Colleagues who gave their workplaces high marks overall were notably more likely to express outsized loyalty and pride in their work.
“Our company’s success is dependent, first and foremost, on the talent and dedication of our people,” says Torch President John Watson. “We are intentional in our efforts to build and maintain a healthy culture that benefits our employee-owners. We’re honored that our employees rate our workplace highly, and that Great Place to Work® and Fortune are recognizing our positive culture for the second consecutive year.”
The Best Workplaces stood apart from their peers on questions assessing professional development and the ability of their leadership. Winning organizations also received higher scores on their benefits and community involvement.
“It’s no secret that the value of a professional services organization lies in its people,” said Great Place to Work’s Executive Vice President, Kim Peters. “The Best Workplaces invest in their staff’s knowledge and wellbeing, creating a high degree of trust that’s reflected in their work for clients.”
The Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work®-certified organizations. Torch Technologies and the other winning companies were selected based on anonymous responses to the Trust Index©, Great Place to Work®’s employee assessment survey.
Torch Technologies was also ranked as a Best Workplace in Consulting & Professionals Services (Ranked #17) in 2016, and as a Small and Medium Workplace by Great Place to Work and Fortune (Ranked #31) in 2016.
