Last year, we learned in publishing our inaugural “Top Workplaces” section that culture trumps compensation.
Obviously, employees like to be well-paid, but they told us that a sense of being valued by their employer is more important in creating a great place to work. In compiling last year’s coverage, we heard from a lot of Oklahoma employees who love where they work and what they do.
We learned a lot about the top-ranked companies like Encompass Home Health, Paycom, Canadian Valley Technology Center and EOG Resources.
But we know there are more such stories to tell.
So we’re asking for nominations for this year’s version of Top Workplaces.
If you work at such a place, or even know of one, you can nominate it as one of Oklahoma’s Top Workplaces, The Oklahoman’s ranking of the best organizations with the best opportunities, work atmosphere, benefits and perks.
Anyone can suggest a company — employees, interns, customers or the head honcho.
The business can be public, private or nonprofit, but it must employ at least 35 people.
Starting with your nominations, The Oklahoman’s partner, WorkplaceDynamics LLC, will recruit employers to participate in a satisfaction survey of their employees. Employers scoring highest locally and meeting national benchmark scores will make the final rankings.
Later this year, the top-ranked companies will be recognized in The Oklahoman and on NewsOK.com, where we will highlight what makes those organizations special.
