CRC Named to “The Baltimore Sun Top Workplaces” List for Fifth Consecutive Year
CRC has been selected to “The Baltimore Sun Top Workplaces” list for the fifth consecutive year. The company was cited in the “Midsize Employers” category. The survey is conducted on behalf of The Baltimore Sun Media Group in conjunction with Energage, an employee research and consulting firm. More than 1,300 local companies participated in the program.
Employee surveys are distributed to the team members of each participating company and analyzed by Energage to determine the winners. Team members are asked to provide anonymous input and evaluation in seven areas including Alignment, covering where the employee thinks the company is headed; Effectiveness, a question that rates if a company is open to new ideas and sharing viewpoints; Connection, which asks if employees believe they feel appreciated; My Manager, a question that rates their immediate supervisor; Employee Engagement; Leader, a query that asks about company leadership and The Basics, which covers pay, benefits and flexibility issues.
Statements about “Connection” and “Alignment” were the most important issues to employees, while comments about pay and benefits were considered the least important, according to The Baltimore Sun.
“Our management team believes this provides validation for the highly productive and positive working environment we have built and continue to foster,” stated Crystal Frey, Vice President, Human Resources. “We place an extremely high value on this acknowledgement and recognize the large number of companies that pursue this award every year. We are committed to maintaining this strong workplace culture and are honored to have won for the fifth consecutive year.”
