TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the fourth year in a row, Republic Media and azcentral.com (part of the USA TODAY network) granted Learning A-Z a coveted spot on their 2018 list of Top Companies to Work for in Arizona.
“We believe top companies start with great teams,” says Patrick Marcotte, president of Learning A-Z. “We encourage a culture of creativity and collaboration, focused on our dedication to the students and educators our business is built to serve. We're fortunate to attract so many brilliant and talented people. They are the ones who make Learning A-Z such a great place to work.”
Designed to recognize the best places of employment in Arizona, the awards also benefit the state economy and help workers identify top employers. To participate, each nominated company completes an in-depth assessment process conducted by independent workplace research firm Best Companies Group (BCG), measuring everything from benefits and employee satisfaction to leadership and professional development. Only 125 organizations across Arizona earn the honor of finally making the list.
“This year the decision was made to expand the list to 125 as a result of very high favorable employee survey scores averaging 90% favorable score for overall survey results and an impressive 92% favorable measuring employee engagement. This level of performance for Arizona companies is about three times the national average when compared to Gallup’s recent reporting of US engagement at about 33% favorable,” says Denise Gredler, founder and CEO for BestCompaniesAZ, program consulting partner. “These winners should be very proud of their engaged workforces for this presents a powerful opportunity to attract and retain the very best talent.”
