PHILADELPHIA, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Covenant Security Services, the nation's premier provider of comprehensive security services, was recently named by Forbes Media and Statista as one of America's Best Midsize Employers in 2016. Covenant is the highest ranked security services company on the list and 66th overall out of 250 companies with over 1,000 employees.
As one of 250 companies receiving this recognition, Covenant Security Services was selected based on the attitude of its employees towards Covenant as well as the public perception of Covenant by industry employees. According to Forbes, the selection process is "based on an independent survey conducted by statistics portal Statista from a sample of 30,000 American employees working for large or midsize firms or institutions."
"This is a great source of pride for Covenant Security Services," Covenant President Greg Iannuzzi said. "Covenant does not exist without the efforts and hard work of our security professionals, and this is a true testament to our employee-focused culture."
Covenant provides security services to over 150 client locations with nearly 4,000 security professionals throughout the country. Covenant is known within the security industry for its strong employee retention program, offering full medical, dental, and vision insurance along with free life insurance, a matching 401(k) program, flexible paid time off, transportation and commuter benefits, and career advancement opportunities.
In the survey conducted by Forbes and Statista, the most important metric of the assessment was the employees' willingness to recommend their employer.
"Covenant takes pleasure in recognizing its people for their professional accomplishments and achievements," Iannuzzi said. "This is recognition in which we can all take great pride."
