SPRINGFIELD, TN, Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Bath Fitter is proud to announce that its Springfield, Tennessee, manufacturing plant has been recognized as a Great Place to Work® Certified company for 2019. The Great Place to Work® Institute is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and leadership behaviors, using validated employee feedback to compile their annual list of top workplaces.
"To be recognized as a Great Place to Work® is an incredible achievement, not least of all because the judges were our own employees," says Chiquita Allen, Human Resources Manager. "The Bath Fitter team here in Springfield has always felt like a family and it's one of the reasons we've been able to achieve such great results and customer satisfaction over the years."
"At Bath Fitter, our vision is to be a great company to work for and do business with and this achievement supports that vision," said Jason Otts, Plant Director. "This would not be possible without all of our wonderful men and women who put on the Bath Fitter uniform each day. Our employees are the most precious resource we have and they are the reason we have a company that we can all be proud of."
Following a response rate of 84 percent of our employees, Bath Fitter's Springfield manufacturing plant, located just north of Nashville, was voted a Great Place To Work®. The detailed survey results showed that employees were particularly pleased with the positive working environment and the welcome feeling they get in the workplace. The surveys also revealed that 93 percent of employees approve of the company's contribution to the local community – something that Bath Fitter takes very seriously, through employee-related activities, direct charitable contributions and community service.
This year's Great Place To Work® certification builds on other awards won by the Springfield manufacturing plant in 2019, including a Top Workplaces honor by Nashville newspaper, The Tennessean.
"The Bath Fitter team in Springfield should be immensely proud of the incredible working environment they have created," says Glenn Cotton, President and CEO. "Our business is not just about selling tubs, but about making people smile, and that must start with our staff and extend to our customers."
