Studer Group was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best small workplaces in the United States on their annual 2013 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list. Ranked seventh, this is the sixth consecutive year Studer Group has received this honor and the third consecutive year in the top ten.
The same principles that Studer Group teaches their partners are also hardwired in their own organization. Leaders send handwritten thank-you notes to employees’ homes, peer interviews are conducted to assist in the selection process and standards of behavior are signed at the time of hire. To show commitment to transparency, all staff can access 90-day performance plans for the entire organization, including Senior Leaders.
Studer Group employees also receive benefits such as four weeks of paid vacation time annually, six-to-eight weeks of paid maternity leave and one week of paid paternity leave for new parents. They also receive a $75 gift card on their birthday (and $25 in cash for employee’s children on their birthday), are provided opportunities to volunteer and support the community and much more.
Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Studer Group participated in a rigorous selection process, which included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
