EMPLOYEE SURVEY DETERMINES TOP WORKPLACES
BY BOB HELBIG
As employers take extraordinary steps to
meet the needs of workers and customers
during the pandemic, the Top Workplaces
awards are recognizing those efforts.
Survey feedback from employees is the
sole basis for determining Top Workplaces.
And that feedback serves as
the ultimate test of how employers are
responding in the age of Covid.
“If Covid taught us anything, it’s that asking
questions and listening to employees
is critical to navigating this new world of
work,” says Eric Rubino, Energage CEO.
“More than ever, you need to be more
intentional about your culture.”
This marks the fourth year Philadelphia
based Energage has ranked the Top

Long Island Press and Dan’s Papers

to have their employees take the survey.

participate, provided it had at least 50

the Top Workplaces program.

The employee engagement survey of 24
questions gathers responses regarding
issues relating to workplace culture:
• Alignment – where the company is
headed, its values, cooperation, effective
• Coaching – managers care about
concerns, are helpful, encourage employee
• Connection – employees feel appreciated,
work is meaningful, working at
full potential, feel informed
• Engagement – productivity, retention,
• Leadership – confidence in company
• Performance – execution,
open-mindedness, innovation, clued-in
