Rodgers Townsend Honored as a "Top Workplace" in St. Louis

Top Workplace

On Sunday, June 24, Rodgers Townsend was named a "Top Workplace" of 2012 by the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Only 50 corporations within the St. Louis metropolitan region received this title, and Rodgers Townsend was ranked 11th in the "Top Small Companies" category.

"We're honored to be named along with other companies we are proud to be associated with, and find it particularly gratifying because our employees viewed our culture so favorably," stated Tim Rodgers, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Rodgers Townsend.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch partnered with WorkplaceDynamics to distribute and analyze the survey results of 97 area employers that agreed to participate in this study. The "Top Workplace" study was founded to recognize companies that continue to provide their employees with great benefits and perks, in spite of hard economic times.

According to the Post Dispatch, "the 50 companies on this list are here because their workers, in confidential surveys, gave their employers high marks on questions ranging from pay to flexible scheduling to career advancement and management's openness to new ideas."

The survey found that simple offerings such as company outings and encouraging employee input were pertinent to the satisfaction of employees.

Rodgers Townsend is notorious for encouraging employee teamwork, communication and transparency with its open-space office layout, as well as sponsoring employee events, like their Valentine's Day Shuffleboard Tournament and Spring Fling Celebration.

And, in response to receiving this honor, some of RT's managers prepared a homemade celebration breakfast.


But, at Rodgers Townsend, this recognition is not only about its employees.

As stated by Rodgers, "Beyond any satisfaction it gives us, it is equally important that our clients, families and friends will see this recognition as a positive reflection on them as well."
