A national program orchestrated by 30 regional daily newspapers across the country and employee survey firm Workplace Dynamics, the competition surveys the employees of all participating companies with more than 35 regional employees and grades their company based on workforce attributes that include leadership, communications, career opportunities, working environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits and profiles the company’s organizational health.

Des-Case ranked 20th in the small company category in Middle Tennessee.

“This is a very satisfying honor that speaks equally of the strength of both our workplace and workforce,” said Brian Gleason, President & CEO of Des-Case.  “When employees enjoy where they work and feel they have the freedom to accomplish great things, not only do you retain them longer, but employees produce better products and deliver support services that truly make a difference in customer retention.  We believe our focus on these attributes is just as critical to our success as what we spend in technology and R&D. It’s a key reason why we’ve continued to grow.”

Participants throughout the region answered a 22-question survey that measures engagement, organizational health and satisfaction.  Participating companies were categorized into three groups—small, medium and large companies—and then ranked based on the rating their employees gave them.

“Des-Case has talented people,” Gleason said, “but thanks to a collaborative culture we have a truly healthy workplace, too, one that will help us outperform our competitors.  The most successful companies are the ones that employees believe in.”
