COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- WOW! Internet, Cable & Phone (NYSE: WOW) is pleased to announce the company has been named a 2019 Top Workplace by Columbus C.E.O. Magazine for the second year in a row. A third party survey of WOW! employees fueled the company's jump in ranking to 14th, up from 29th in 2018.
"We couldn't be happier to be included in the list of top workplaces in Columbus again this year," said Teresa Elder, CEO of WOW!. "We made substantial investments in our WOW! employees including introducing new initiatives focused on training, professional development, increased compensation and other programs aimed at improving retention over the last year. Being recognized by our employees for these efforts is a tremendous honor, and we will continue working diligently to provide them with the tools and support they need to be successful and engaged."
Employee satisfaction and growth is a top priority for WOW! and the company made significant investments in employee-focused initiatives like career training and development, improved wages and benefits, and recognition programs. WOW! also regularly surveys it employees to measure the success and impact of these kinds of programs. Similar to the improved Top Workplace ranking, WOW!'s internal surveys showed a dramatic increase in its employee net promoter score (eNPS) from December 2017 to December 2018.
"Top Workplaces is more than just recognition," said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. "Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement."
The list of top ranking companies in Columbus is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, and measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection.
