AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Arrive Logistics has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication’s second annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.
The list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through meaningful cultures, strong employee engagement, and coveted benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies.
“We started Arrive Logistics by building the company from the people out. Investing in our team and focusing on keeping engagement high has always been a priority,” Matt Pyatt, co-founder and CEO of Arrive Logistics, said.
Eric Dunigan, co-founder and President of Arrive Logistics, added: “We have a very open culture that encourages our team members to think ambitiously and differently. That means trusting each other, accepting the unknown, and embracing a ‘let’s go’ attitude.”
The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. To qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- Strong company cultures breed strong individual and team performance.
- When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged.
- Employees that believe the organization they work for will be successful in the years to come are increasingly bought-in.
“By introducing an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar,” said Eric Schurenberg, Inc.’s President and Editor In Chief.
“Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.”
