Only environmental services provider to receive certification
PHOENIX, Sept. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- For the seventh consecutive year, Republic Services, Inc. (NYSE: RSG) has been certified as a Great Place to Work® by the global authority on workplace culture and employee experience. The certification, based on information employees provide about their workplace experiences, recognizes a culture that highlights inclusion and diversity, while unlocking the unique potential of every employee. Republic continues to be the only environmental services provider with Great Place to Work certification.
"At Republic, we're committed to maintaining our highly inclusive culture and a workplace where the best people, from all backgrounds, want to work," said Jon Vander Ark, president and CEO. "Our employees are highly engaged, committed to our company values and go above and beyond to exceed our customers' expectations."
The percentage of employees who said Republic Services is a great place to work far exceeded the typical US-based company. Republic scored high in several categories, including employees feeling they can be themselves in the workplace, having pride in the company's work and feeling proud to tell others that they work at the company.
Training and development are significant components of Republic Services' culture. The company offers several programs to help employees develop and advance within the organization. Earlier this year, Republic Services removed a college degree as a requirement for many roles within the organization to provide additional opportunities for employees as well as attract new talent.
