2019 Employee Voice Award Nominees Announced

Quantum Workplace Employee Voice AwardOMAHA, Neb. (Feb. 1, 2019) – Each year, we at Quantum Workplace host our Best Places to Work contest, which recognizes the top 20 organizations for their distinction in employee engagement with the Employee Voice Award.

We define employee engagement as the strength of mental and emotional connection that employees feel toward their places of work.

The Employee Voice Award (EVA) was established in 2008 and recognizes Quantum Workplace customers that excel in collecting, analyzing, and taking action on employee feedback. The award is based on level on both employee engagement survey participation and results. These honorees have listened to their employees and worked hard to apply that feedback within their organizations this past year.

The EVA recognizes these organizations in five size categories: 1-99, 100-249, 250-499, 500-999, 1,000-4,999, and 5,000+ in two categories: Highest Level of Engagement and Raising Engagement. Customers must use Quantum Workplace’s core survey items and have 30 or more employees to be eligible. The following organizations are this year’s 2019 EVA recipients:

As a part of the recognition, honorees will receive a custom engraved award symbolizing their commitment to employee voices.

"Culture is more than a buzzword - these companies prove it," Greg Harris, President and CEO of Quantum Workplace, said. “When leadership values open and honest employee feedback, recognizes strong performance, and clearly puts effort into improving the employee experience, employees are allowed to thrive and be the best versions of themselves. These organizations have displayed a commitment to creating cultures that lead to great success, and it’s our honor to partner with them and recognize their achievements.”



The award process will look slightly different next year, as they’re excited to announce that next year’s awards will expand to celebrate and highlight both organizational and team achievement.
