We are thrilled to announce that we have been named a Top Workplace in the St. Louis region for 2015, as presented by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in partnership with WorkplaceDynamics!This honor was provided by our incredible workforce, and we are beyond blessed for their dedication to Woodard. We couldn’t do what we do without our staff, and we are thrilled to know that they believe in Woodard.How Top Workplaces are IdentifiedFor the past 4 years, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has partnered with WorkplaceDynamics, a survey firm, to identify the top St. Louis workplaces in three size categories – small (less than 150 employees), midsize (150-499 employees), and large (500+ employees). The process began earlier this year when the Post-Dispatch invited readers to nominate local employers. Companies that were nominated allowed WorkplaceDynamics to survey their employees, gauging how they felt about their workplaces. WorkplaceDynamics required a 35% response rate from employees in order to get an accurate reflection of workplace satisfaction.How Woodard RankedOut of 164 companies that participated this year, WorkplaceDynamics identified 100 that had high enough scores to be named Top Workplaces, and Woodard is one of them! In the midsize category, Woodard ranked as #35 and was the only cleaning & restoration company on the list. Among the 6 factors listed on the survey, our employees rated us the highest in “Alignment,” which contains the following factors:I believe Woodard Cleaning & Restoration is going in the right directionI have confidence in the leader of Woodard Cleaning & RestorationWoodard Cleaning & Restoration operates by strong values and ethics“This is such an honor for us, and we are very proud of our strong employment brand.
