By Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE
Manahawkin, NJ – Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have honored The Wireless Experience (TWE) as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces in Retail. The ranking is based on anonymous surveys representing over 631,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified companies in the retail industry. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated over 60 factors measuring whether employees find their organizations create a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on employees’ experiences of workplace trust and reaching their full potential at the organization, no matter who they are or what they do. The balance of each company’s score takes into account employees’ involvement in company innovation, the organization’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders. The Wireless Experience took the No. 2 spot on the small and medium business list.
“We could not be more proud to be ranked one of the Best Workplaces in Retail for the second year in row,” stated Brian Wainwright, CEO of TWE. “In a very competitive market, we pride ourselves on standing out in the crowd and giving our employees a place to work where they feel valued and treated as people, not numbers. As we grow, we commit to maintaining a culture that employees often say feels like a family.”
The Best Workplaces in Retail stand out for creating great workplaces for all employees, regardless of position or other personal characteristics. Over the past year, TWE has reinvested in their employees by re-structuring their training program to allow all new hires to be set up for success as well as to allow current team members to continue to grow and expand their education. TWE also added an Employee Feedback feature on their internal employee website that allows employees to give candid, anonymous feedback to the leadership team. Continuing to find new ways to communicate and engage with their employees is how TWE will continue to grow and thrive.
“People feel good shopping at retailers that treat employees well,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “The Best Workplaces in Retail are thriving in an evolving marketplace because they inspire and empower their employees to give their best and provide exceptional experiences for customers.”
The Best Workplaces in Retail list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. The Wireless Experience also was ranked among the 2018 Best Workplaces in New York, 2018 Best Small & Medium Workplaces, 2017 Best Small & Medium Workplaces, and 2017 Best Workplaces for Retail.
