Orange County Register Names Surterre Properties as One of Orange County's Top Workplaces in 2015
Posted by Leann Freeman — December 4, 2015
NEWPORT BEACH, CA – Surterre Properties has been awarded a 2015 Top Workplaces honor by the Orange County Register. 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.”
Surterre is honored to have received this coveted award. It is a true reflection of the dynamic and team-oriented environment that thrives among staff and agents. President and CEO Gary Legrand responds to earning this significant recognition: “Receiving a Top Workplace award is one of the prestigious accomplishments that a business can accept. We’ve always made it a goal to not just provide the highest level of service to our clients, but to also create an environment that supports our staff personally and professionally. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing our agents and staff are fulfilled in their careers and they’re proud of where they work. A “Top Workplace” doesn’t happen without having a team focused on being the best, so this honor is the culmination of our staff and agents creating and maintaining a company culture of support, growth and work life/home life balance. We are so proud of all that we’ve accomplished and honored to be nominated as a Top Workplace once again.”
