A positive work environment is essential to a healthy business and has been a central component of our success. So we’re proud to announce that Torch Technologies has earned a place among the country’s Best Small and Medium Workplaces recently announced by consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
Torch Technologies won this accolade based on employees’ anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride and camaraderie at work. Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process. Among the findings from the study: trust fuels business performance. For example, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces enjoy roughly three times the revenue growth of their peers, even as they provide a better experience for their people.
“Our company values our commitment to others. By creating a culture that benefits our employee-owners, we ultimately benefit our customers, our community, and the warfighter,” says Torch President John Watson. “As a 100 percent employee-owned company, we know that our company’s success depends on our employee-owners. Fortunately for us, our employee-owners are loyal, talented, and generous people who make our company a great place to work.”
Torch Technologies came in #31 on the Best Medium Workplaces list.
“There’s a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Small and Medium workplaces—one that has a measurable return,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. “Whether it’s funding employee ‘passion projects’ or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue.”
The Best Small and Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work-CertifiedTM organizations.
Torch Technologies also ranked as a best workplace for the 2016 Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
