TAMPA, Fla., April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Valet Waste has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Tampa Bay Times. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an associate 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, just to name a few.
"We are thrilled to be named a 2017 top workplace and are looking forward to continuing our growth within the Tampa Bay community," said Valet Waste President & Chief Executive Officer, Shawn Handrahan. "This award means a lot to us because not only is it for our associates, but it was given to us by our associates."
Since its inception in 1995, Valet Waste has been headquartered in Tampa, FL. Today, Valet Waste is the nation's leading provider of doorstep trash and recycling collection services, currently serving roughly 900,000 units in 35 states. Valet Waste services includes Doorstep Trash Collection – one of the top resident-requested amenities, Maintenance Plus - a program designed to give back hours of time each week to maintenance teams, Pet Waste stations - the total solution to property pet waste, and Simple Turns – simplifying the turn process so property management partners can make the most of their time. Additionally, Valet Waste has grown to be the only nationally recognized amenities provider in the multifamily housing industry.
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits." says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "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. Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."
