According to studies of Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®, corporate cultures with a high level of trust among employees and leadership have significantly lower turnover and better financial performance compared to industry peers. These companies also experience increased innovation, higher customer satisfaction, greater brand recognition, more success in attracting and retaining top talent and increased agility and speed. In human terms – greater success and higher spirits.
In October 2016, Gas South established its Great Place to Work (GPTW) Team to help foster that sense of trust by uncovering meaningful insights and making positive changes to create a better overall employee experience.
The goal of the team is to understand what’s most important to our coworkers so that working at the company is an amazing endeavor for employees every day – and to set the standard for providing a productive and fulfilling company culture.
After more than a year of combined effort, the team has enhanced the flex/telecommute policy, modified work shifts for the Customer Care Center Reps, improved the tuition assistance policy, inspired one another through a companywide recognition program, and created unparalleled career development activities.
By continually launching new purpose-driven initiatives and improvements, Gas South’s GPTW Team is proud to help the company continue to lead the way in cultivating a truly outstanding work environment.
