On Sunday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution — our local newspaper — released its annual list of the best workplaces in Atlanta. We made the list for the third straight year!
CallRail was one of 4,300 companies asked to participate in the contest, and was one of 150 companies to be selected to the final list. We’re one of the 55 “midsize” companies saluted, with 154 employees at the time of entry (last November).
This is CallRail’s first time in the “midsize” category, though we’ve placed in the “small companies” category for the last two years.
The AJC explained how the contest was set up and the logic behind the surveys: “Employees across the metro Atlanta responded to print and online solicitations that started in September. To determine the top places to work, Energage — a Philadelphia-based human resources consulting company — surveyed 256 metro area companies. Throughout those companies, more than 55,000 employees participated.”
“Those workers were asked to use the seven-point Likert scale. Each statement was tested to ensure a high correlation with how Atlanta employees rate their workplaces. This was calculated by the employee on a scale of zero to 99.”
Over the last year, we’ve invested heavily in the CallRail workplace experience. We refined our core values to be more actionable and memorable. We created a full-time position to focus on building a positive, rewarding company culture. We launched a Culture Ambassadors Board to ensure that we were receiving broad input from across the organization. We piloted new leadership and one-on-one mentorship programs. And we established a new goal-setting structure, helping all employees to see how their individual daily efforts contribute to larger, company-wide goals.
CallRail remains proactive with these efforts, with big plans to bring on many more new employees in 2019 and beyond. And our goal is for each of them to have the same, award-winning workplace experience that we’re enjoying today.
