ATLANTA, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- eVestment, the global leader in institutional investor data and analytics, has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Atlanta Journal Constitution, ranking as the No. 2 top workplace in metro Atlanta among mid-sized companies. eVestment CEO Jim Minnick was also recognized among special category award winners with a leadership award.
The top workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection.
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest," says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits. But 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. 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. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a top workplace."
Minnick's personal workplace leadership recognition was based on the survey question "I have confidence in the leader of this company." The positivity scores on that statement were higher than any organization of comparable size in the Atlanta market.
"Building a workplace where people feel challenged to innovate, feel they can grow their careers and enjoy coming to every day is one of our key goals as a company because we feel that environment results in the best service and solutions for our clients," said Minnick. "To be personally recognized for these efforts as a result of feedback from our employees is very humbling. I look forward to continuing to earn this trust as eVestment continues to grow in Atlanta and around the world."
