IPA’s ‘People First’ Culture Garners Recognition for Employee Satisfaction PHOENIX, AZ (June 25, 2015) – CareerBuilder® and Republic Media (The Arizona Republic, azcentral.com, La Voz) announced today that IPA Management has earned a spot on the list of 2015 Careerbuilder® Top Companies to Work for in Arizona.
All participating companies completed a two-part assessment process conducted by the independent workplace research firm, Best Companies Group (BCG). Part one of process was the Employer Questionnaire, where BCG asked about benefits, HR policies and the fun things the employers do for their employees. Part two was the Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey which measured the employee experience in 8 core focus areas: “Leadership and Planning”, “Corporate Culture and Communications”, “Role Satisfaction”, “Work Environment”, “Relationship with Supervisor”, “Training, Development and Resources”, “Pay and Benefits”, and “Overall Engagement”. Using the combined data from both parts of the survey process, BCG was able to determine who was good enough to make the list. This year, 75 organizations made the grade.
“This Top Company list gets more competitive each year”, says Denise Gredler, CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and consulting partner for the program. “The list winners had very impressive employee survey results averaging an overall favorable rate of 88 percent and an overall employee engagement score of 91 percent, which is more than double the national average. These winners should be very proud of their engaged workforces. This presents a powerful opportunity for award- winners to promote their company culture to retain and attract the best talent.”
“Our goal at IPA is to create a culture in which our team members feel valued and connected. We strive to provide meaningful experiences through thoughtfully planned team events, trainings and community programs to help nurture relationships and help people connect.” Heidi Arave, Regional Property Manager, added “Our supportive work environment is full of opportunities for team members to learn and grow. It is an honor to be recognized as one of Arizona’s “Top Companies to Work for” as it supports our ability to attract and retain top talent.
