WSJ Releases Best Run-Companies of 2018—Including 31 WCS Clients!
As a company invested in helping our clients build thriving teams of employees, we’re impressed by all of the companies on the Wall Street Journal‘s list of the “Management 250,” or the 250 best-run companies of 2018. And we’re especially proud of the 31 list members who are our clients!
What is the Best-Run Companies List?
The list was published this week and recognizes companies that rank the highest across five key categories: customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength. It’s a holistic approach based on management expert Peter Drucker’s core values and research from the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University.
How does workplace wellness factor in?
As a wellness provider, our goal is to support employees’ wellbeing and help engage them in their company culture. We’re thrilled to see that engagement is not only a key piece of putting this list together, but that the approach understands how engaged employees truly help the company thrive overall, contributing to success in all the other key categories.
Here’s how the WSJ explains it:
Engaging employees across diverse sectors
We’re always on the lookout for standout companies who are leading the field when it comes to expert management—whether we work with them or not!—and we also love it when our clients get recognition for all their hard work and commitment to their employees.
The 31 clients that we have on the list span diverse sectors and have all demonstrated a commitment to providing the best possible experience for their employees and their families. Those sectors include real estate, construction, automotive industry, consumer goods, hospitality, health care, financial services, energy, and technology. Because of our depth in experience across all kinds of industries, we know that each employee population is different. From our point of view, we know that when companies lean into what makes their culture different and special, they can successfully engage employees around common goals and provide strong benefits that allow them to lead their best life inside and outside the office.
What do some of those employee population differences look like? Whether it’s a higher number of employees who work remotely, an unconventional worksite setup, or a team that is mostly offline, our team knows how to deliver wellness programming that reaches employees, encourages participation, and makes a measurable impact.
We’re so grateful to these clients for prioritizing their employees’ health and wellbeing, and are inspired by every company on this list who is building a dynamic, engaged workforce.
