Bright Horizons has made another list!
We’re ecstatic to report that our teammates to the west just scored in Denver – landing (again!) on the Denver Post’s list of the Top Workplaces for 2017.
Why are we so excited? The Post talked to about 50-thousand employees from more than 200 Denver organizations who detailed why they signed on with their employers…and why they stick around. Both are pretty big deals in Denver, a metro area with unemployment in the very low single digits.
“A bustling employment scene,” wrote the Denver Post, “means workplace leaders have to work harder than ever to keep their best team members.” That’s for sure.
Top Workplaces: It’s All About Business Culture
For us at Bright Horizons, it’s not just about getting named (though we love that!). It’s also about what our 700 or so colleagues had to say about working at Bright Horizons in Colorado:
“I get to work with awesome people and I get to help families every day.”
“I make a difference in people’s lives.”
“The culture and training are amazing as well.”
“The people I work with are committed to excellence.”
What Matters to Employees
The above fits with what the Post says is catching employees’ eyes: “Pay and benefits help,” they wrote, “but a healthy workplace culture and employee engagement were far more important to workers.” We couldn’t agree more.
You’ll have to forgive a little boasting…but we’re not at all surprised by our colleagues’ success. Our Denver team may be located 2,000 miles from our Watertown headquarters, but we know them like they’re our next-door neighbors. We like to think that’s part of a little thing called HEART (Honesty, Excellence, Accountability, Respect, and Teamwork) – Bright Horizons’ values statement that connects our culture across the miles.
Thanks, Denver Post, for the honor. And way to go, Bright Horizons Denver! Glad you’re part of our family.
And to all the organizations big and small also on the list…
