Power Home Remodeling Group, the No. 4 company on the Qualified Remodeler Top 500, was recently named to the list of 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2016 by FORTUNE and Great Place to Work. Ranking 59 on the list, Power is one of only two companies in the Philadelphia region named to the list which highlights champions of culture that have made employee engagement and talent development top priorities. In 2015, Power was also recognized by Fortune as the No. 1 Best Place to Work for Millennials and the No. 1 Best Place to Work for Camaraderie in the U.S.
“We could not be more proud to be selected among hundreds of companies and nationally recognized on this coveted list for the first time. Our placement on the 100 Best Companies list further demonstrates that Power does not operate like any others in our industry and that we are unique in that our top priority is creating an amazing culture that attracts really impressive people to work here,” said Asher Raphael, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Power Home Remodeling Group. “This award is the benchmark for being a top workplace and is a further testament to our previous #1 Fortune rankings for having one of the happiest and most motivated workplaces, especially for millennials who make up more than 85 percent of our company.”
Power’s top mission is to create an unparalleled workplace culture and invest heavily in its people. The company continues to invest millions of dollars each year on events focused on leadership development and to foster employee engagement, while providing limitless opportunities for advancement. In the first half of 2016 alone, employees heard from Wayne Gretzky — a speaker at the company’s leadership conference held in Dallas last month — and will have opportunities to attend the MLB All-Star Game, the ESPYS and NCAA Final Four.
“This achievement is special because it is based on the feedback of our employees — who continue to amaze me with their loyalty and dedication to our mission,” Raphael added. “We will continue to develop our business by focusing on people first, as we evolve and grow. We are relentlessly dedicated to creating a workplace that offers our people exactly what they are looking for out of their career.”
Each year, Fortune partners with Great Place to Work to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company’s survey score is based on the results of the Trust Index Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to employees’ attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.
“Now more than ever, it is important for companies to prove they are great workplaces,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Top talent expects as much as they seek new opportunities, and customers are demanding it as well as they decide where to spend their dollars. The 100 best workplaces are at the top of the heap in demonstrating they have a high-trust, high-performing culture.”
