NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home repair solutions, today announced it has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor, for the fourth year in a row, by the Connecticut Post.
HomeServe provides homeowners with protection from the unexpected costs and inconvenience associated with plumbing, heating, cooling and electrical repairs through cost-effective home emergency repair service plans. The Company partners with over 475 cities, municipalities, utilities and associations to deliver best-in-class services to more than 3.1 million customers across the continental U.S. and in Canada. Headquartered in the Merritt 7 complex in Norwalk, CT, HomeServe has more than 235 CT-based employees and nearly 900 employees company-wide.
HomeServe has long been an employee-centric company with a keen focus on the people who help make it successful. Offering a work environment that encourages learning, supports creativity and promotes collaboration helps ensure its team members’ professional endeavors are realized. Moreover, HomeServe keeps its people at the heart of the business by keeping them top of mind when considering everything from new benefit options to philanthropic programs.
“Being named one of the Top Workplaces in Connecticut four years in a row is a tremendous honor,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe USA. “When we say our team is our most valuable asset, we really mean it. That’s why we’ve worked to establish a culture that enables our people to simultaneously perform at their best, learn new skills to grow their capabilities and lead our company to a very exciting future.”
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee 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.
“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.”
