Sability is One of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces

Sability is one of the highest-scoring businesses with standout employee engagement; Inc. Best Workplaces

Atlanta, GA (June 1, 2017) – Sability has been named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication’s second annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.

The list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies.

Inc.’s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent.

What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes the two work together.

“It’s all about being genuine. With our employees all working remotely, we have tried a lot of things, both serious and silly, to keep them connected and engaged. Some ideas are more successful than others, but the team can tell that we genuinely care for them both personally and professionally.” says Rob Leonard, Sability CEO. “We really do want to see pictures from your summer vacation, charity event or your child’s graduation.”

The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop:

  • Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
  • Workers at the best companies don’t view their employers as sugar daddies. They aren’t mesmerized by whatever giveaways seem to be the latest fad—be it gourmet lunches or beer fridges.
  • When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.
  • Sometimes it’s the little things that people remember most, like an unexpected delivery of company swag or a gift card to say thanks.

“By introducing an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.”
