COMMERCIAL APPEAL NAMES CENTRO INCORPORATED A WINNER OF THE MEMPHIS 2016 TOP WORKPLACES AWARD

Thursday, December 15, 2016

Centro Incorporated has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Commercial Appeal. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.


“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
 
Centro is committed to the idea that a great company first has to be a great place to work.  People do their best, and customers receive our best when the people at Centro work together as a team.  Successful teams and businesses are built on trust and trust has to run vertically and horizontally in an organization—top down, bottom up and side to side.  Michael Gallagher, president and CEO of Centro commented “We are honored to be part of the group of 60 local companies that were recognized by the Commercial Appeal.  Most importantly our selection by Work Place Dynamics is a reflection of the way we all feel about the company and one another.  Truly we are all in this together and we succeed or fail as a team.”
