Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, was named one of the "Top Workplaces" for 2016 in the Philadelphia region based on an independent survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC.
WorkplaceDynamics invited more than 32,000 employees from companies around the region to anonymously rate their bosses and businesses. Edmund Optics was recognized in the mid-size company category for a seventh year in a row.
“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.”
"We are thrilled to be recognized as a Top Workplace in Philadelphia for a seventh year in a row," said Marisa Edmund, EVP of Sales and Marketing. “It’s gratifying to see that the family-inspired culture that my grandfather set out to build nearly 75 years ago is still at the core of our business and our employees truly are members of the EO family.”
Top Workplaces are about a better way of doing business. Extensive research has shown that organizations that rank in this survey are providing their employees with a great place to work in an environment where they can be more innovative, and in a company that operates more ethically and serves their customers better. Edmund Optics is proud to be included in this group of exceptional organizations. Complete details can be found at http://www.philly.com/philly/business/workplaces.
