Rockwood Shutters has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Houston Chronicle. The Houston based shutters manufacturer was named a finalist in the midsize company division and also received a special award for Work/Life Flexibility. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
“We are thrilled to be honored by the Houston Chronicle and Workplace Dynamics for the second straight year. This award expresses the strong opinion of our amazing team of employees that Rockwood is among the finest places to work in Houston.” Says Jennifer Baur, President and CEO of Rockwood Shutters. “People work with us because they want to be part of our unique culture. We’re passionate about our customers and our work here and we have fun doing it together as a team.”
