VelocityEHS Named One of Chicago’s Top Workplaces by the Chicago Tribune
Chicago (November 2, 2018) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability solutions, has been named one of Chicago’s 2018 Top Workplaces by the Chicago Tribune for its vibrant office space and engaging work culture. The Tribune’s annual special report highlights the feedback from employee surveys to recognize the most dynamic and supportive companies to work for in the Chicago region.
Headquartered in downtown Chicago, VelocityEHS is the largest and fastest growing EHS software company in the world. The company puts a strong emphasis on work-life balance and employee well-being through a variety of programs and activities that help it hire and retain the area’s top talent. This includes regularly scheduled social events and intramural teams that strengthen employee engagement, as well as individualized coaching and an open-plan office layout with sit/stand ergonomic work stations to promote career growth, teamwork and personal well-being.
“It’s such an honor to receive this recognition, especially since it comes directly from employee feedback,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “Work-life balance means two things at VelocityEHS – having time for your life outside of work, and taking steps to bring more life into the workplace. That’s why we’re not just focused on the work we do to help companies keep others safe, but also on having fun while doing it. Between the variety of workplace events, volunteer opportunities and other group activities available, we never forget that dynamic people need and deserve a dynamic place to work.”
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of employee feedback surveys administered by Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture are measured, including alignment, execution, and connection.
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy. It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
In addition to Chicago, VelocityEHS also has global offices in Ann Arbor, Michigan; Oakville Canada; London, England; and Sydney, Australia.
