The Intersect Group (TIG) has been named a Top Workplace by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for the third year! The annual award ranks the best companies to work for in the metro Atlanta region. More than 2,552 companies were nominated and the top 150 were compiled and recognized at an awards ceremony at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on March 22.
“The Top Workplace award is special to us because it’s based solely on the feedback of our colleagues,” says Rebecca Rogers Tijerino, CEO, The Intersect Group. “It says a lot about the culture we’ve established, where our colleagues are inspired to succeed by serving; it’s this passion that drives our growth and helps TIG attract talented professionals who want to excel and have a great time in the process.”
The Top Workplace list is based on the results of an anonymous employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. The survey measures several aspects of workplace satisfaction and culture, including Alignment, Execution and Connection.
Our colleagues recognized TIG for our high-quality onboarding and training process, open door policy, and work environment in which everyone has the opportunity to share ideas. Not to mention the many workplace perks – from unlimited time off; to monthly All Star Winners recognition and an annual Legends Trip for top performers; to activities such as Pampering Day, a Dessert Cook Off and our not-to-be-missed company holiday party to wrap up the year.
But being named a Top Workplace isn’t just about the perks – it’s much deeper than that.
“To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees,” says Doug Claffey, CEO, WorkplaceDynamics “Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
