Stevie winners were presented their awards on September 30 in New York
Boston, MA (October 4, 2016) – Enquiron® has been named a Silver Stevie® Award winner in the first annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers.
The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, achievements and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Friday, September 30.
More than 250 nominations from organizations around the world were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of HR-related categories, including Achievement in Workplace Safety & Compliance, Employer of the Year, Chief Human Resources Officer of the Year, Human Resources Team of the Year and Employee Relations Solution Provider of the Year, among others. Enquiron won a Silver Stevie® Award in the Employer of the Year category for Business Services.
“Work is an important part of life, but not life itself.” These words from Mike Naclerio, President & CEO of Enquiron, are not just buzzwords. Enquiron is truly dedicated to investing in its people and supporting everyone to thrive professionally and personally. Judges’ comments included:
- Great data and impressive employee programs/benefits. Culture appears to be inviting and authentic. Well done!
- To move from an annual to a quarterly evaluation process with focus on mentoring instead of rating focus is a culture changing approach. This supports to set up a real feedback culture and helps line managers to focus more on the core aspects of leadership…
Enquiron’s home office is in Boston, but 53% of its employees are located remotely, nationwide. This allows the company to find the best talent and culture fit. An important part of developing people is listening to and giving ongoing feedback. That’s why the company ditched the annual performance review and replaced it with a quarterly assessment for mentoring. Supervisors and employees create annual goals together in all levels of the company and each goal must be tied to a corporate goal. The results have been positive. Each year, Enquiron employees take an annual engagement survey, and in 2015, it found that 87% of employees are engaged at work. This year’s engagement rate is 94% with a 92% retention rate. Through investing in people with excellent benefits and real work-life-balance, both Enquiron and its employees have been able to grow and thrive.
“It is an honor to join the company of so many other respected business leaders and to be recognized for our team’s continuous efforts to make Enquiron the best place to advance their professional careers,” said Mike Naclerio, President and CEO of Enquiron. “Our team is our greatest strategic asset and advantage. We’ve added many new members to our team over the past few years, and we look forward to the continued growth, creativity, and innovation that is a direct result of our world class talent.”
More than 50 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
“The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received in the first Stevie Award for Great Employers. The dedication these Stevie-winning organizations have to making great workplaces for employees was evident in every nomination,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
