PlanetOne scored high marks for standout employee engagement
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 16, 2019 – PlanetOne, today announced that it has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019.
Hitting newsstands today in the June 2019 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. PlanetOne was selected in the survey which collected data from nearly 2,000 submissions.
“We are humbled and honored to achieve national recognition once again as one of the best places to work,” said Ted Schuman, Founder and CEO, PlanetOne. “At PlanetOne, we are focused on enabling our employees to do the common things uncommonly well and develop meaningful relationships that lead to incredible results. The happiness and well-being of our employees is always a top priority and is the foundation to providing our partners and customers with an exceptional and genuine experience. Our success is driven by the work hard, play hard culture we continue to celebrate and share with our partners.”
As part of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019, nominated companies took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace. Topics included trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data then ranked employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 74.2 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work—besting last year’s 72.1 percent.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It’s a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
All companies participating in the program were required to have a minimum of 10 employees and be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent—that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 99 percent provide health insurance—and some cover the cost.
- 49 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 65 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 16 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
“With today’s tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from.”
