The St. Louis Post-Dispatch named Rodgers Townsend a "Top Workplace" of 2014. The Top Workplaces are determined solely by employee feedback. Only 90 area firms within the St. Louis metropolitan region achieved high enough scores to be named Top Workplaces, and Rodgers Townsend was ranked 8th in the "Top Small Companies" (149 employees or fewer) category. The agency was recognized for this same honor in 2012 and 2013.
"We're honored to be named for a third time to this prestigious list," stated Tim Rodgers, chief executive officer and co-founder of Rodgers Townsend. "We know that our success as a business is directly related to the aptitude and attitude of our employees, and we try and make it as easy as possible for them to succeed in a way that makes us both proud. And none of us would be happy without our great clients who give us the opportunity to continually challenge ourselves and push each other to be even better."
The Post-Dispatch survey found that these three categories - a sense of direction, confident leadership and strong values and ethics - are the top three influencers on an employee's attitude towards his or her job.
Rodgers Townsend employees shared these comments in the survey: "I get to do what I love in a great work environment," and "The people here are amazing, and simply not wanting to let any of them down is a huge motivator. Everyone seems to work hard, which makes me want to do the same to hold up my end."
The St. Louis Post Dispatch partnered with WorkplaceDynamics on this survey. The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics works to better understand what's on the minds of employees.
