Top Workplace of 2022
Corks popping and fireworks fireworkin’. That’s the sound of our team celebrating!
Each year, approximately 1,500 companies are invited to compete for a spot on the “Top Workplaces” list . The process is extensive and relies on anonymous surveys and interviews with employees across all industries, looking for culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization including: alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. The data has been compiled and the results are in: Nationwide Power, is honored to claim their 2022 title as a Top Workplace.
You may have heard us a few times already as we talk about company culture, “Doing it right the first time”, and our commitment to providing a quality-first and team-first environment. However, when our own team members take a stand on behalf of the company, that’s when you know it’s legit!
The critical power industry isn’t typically the first that comes to mind for a culture-first, team-first environment. In fact, Nationwide Power’s business model of focusing inward on quality is one of the differentiators that sets us apart from competitors. We asked our Vice President, Jim Hallingstad to chime in on what makes us so unique compared to our competitors, and he wasn’t shy with his comments: “It’s important that our team members, especially our Critical Power Professionals™ in the field who are interacting with our customers day in and day out, know that they’re heard and that their voice matters. After all, it is the team members doing the actual work and who know their jobs the best, not the managers. Why would we not want to encourage our people to help improve their processes and increase quality, which in turn helps make our customers successful?”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, when many of our competitors reduced hours or furloughed employees, we made it a priority to keep every team member and even hired new ones. While this may have had a short-term cost to the company, the long-term gain of shifting the focus to process refinement and quality assurance, along with taking care of the team, will have a longstanding ROI.
Hallingstad added, “While many companies are struggling to recruit and retain good talent, it’s just not an issue we have at Nationwide Power. With strong retention numbers, we really haven’t felt the effect of the ‘Great Resignation’ that is crippling companies across all industries. This is true throughout our company, including our Critical Power Professionals™ in the field. It’s really a testament to the culture of quality our team has built, why our turnover is low, and why our team voted their workplace as a Top 2022 Workplace.”
