High-Growth Network Infrastructure Company Follows Up Great Place to Work Certification by Being Named No. 9 Small Business in N.C.
CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – June 23, 2022 – Essentia, Inc. ranks No. 9 on the recently released list of Great Employers to Work for in North Carolina 2022 — Small Company category.
The top 10 ranking, which was announced by the Best Companies Group, is based on an anonymous employee survey and an analysis of company responses regarding corporate culture, training and development, salary and benefits, and overall employee satisfaction. The last time that Essentia applied for the honor, it landed at the No. 16 position.
“Making the list of North Carolina’s great employers is a tremendous honor,” said Lindon Hayes, Founder and CEO of Essentia. “But I consider it an even bigger win to see that we’ve improved our position. That’s what truly matters — taking the employee invaluable feedback that this program provides and acting on it.”
Essentia was also Certified™ as a Great Place to Work® for the second straight year in May. In doing so, 90% of its team members said that it was a great place to work — compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company. In 2021, 73% of the Essentia workforce responded favorably to the question.
“In addition to providing critical, candid employee input, accolades such as the Great Place to Work and Best Companies lists are a boon to recruitment at a time when so many struggle to compete for top talent,” Hayes said. “The awards catch the eye of candidates, and then when they dig deeper, they understand the commitment we’ve made to creating a best-in-class workplace culture.”
In all, 35 companies were selected for the 2022 Great Employers in North Carolina from the pool of applicants.
“These companies prioritize the needs of their employees and treat them as people not numbers…” said Jaime Raul Zepeda, executive vice president of Best Companies Group. “Our research proves this year’s winners are committed to developing a highly-engaged workforce.”
