Keller Schroeder, an Evansville-based Information Technology company, has been named one of the 2017 Best Small & Medium Workplaces in the United States by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE magazine.
This ranking considered 74,000 surveys from employees at hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. Keller Schroeder earned a spot on this list based on co-workers’ assessment of the camaraderie, leadership, fairness, rewards and career opportunities enjoyed by all in their workplace. Keller Schroeder ranked twenty-first among the winning organizations in the category of small workplaces.
“As an organization, Keller Schroeder exists to make positive, personal impacts on employee-owners, our clients, and our communities. Receiving a national award from such reputable organizations as Great Place to Work and FORTUNE is an excellent testament to our employee-owners regularly making positive impacts,” said Jeff Gorman, President of Keller Schroeder.
Outstanding small and mid-sized employers – as identified by their employees – are substantially more likely to report work experiences linked to retention, innovation and good customer service, according to research by Great Place to Work. The winning organizations also are more likely than their peers to maintain a healthy organizational culture as they grow larger and more complex.
“The Best Small & Medium workplaces are laying the groundwork for future success by building trust, cooperation and leadership credibility. All of these enhance business performance and create a positive environment for doing business,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
