Columbia, SC, Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Electric Guard Dog, the #1 Theft Deterrent Service™, announced they have been named to the Best Places to Work in South Carolina 2015 Awards. As an added bonus, the electric security fence company noted they climbed three spots in the rankings this year to #19.
South Carolina's List of the Best Places to work is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the state. Companies enter a two-part survey process that includes evaluating the company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics, as well as an employee survey to measure the employee experience.
Electric Guard Dog's ascent comes as a surprise only in the sense that it's difficult to see where they could have improved. Historically, the employee surveys have included:
- 97% of employees stating the company treats them like a person, not a number
- 97% feel their supervisor treats them fairly
- 100% feel the company enables diversity
- 94% have confidence in leadership
- 100% are so satisfied with their jobs they intend to stay at least 2 more years
Glassdoor ratings mirror the stellar survey results, with a 93% approval rating of CEO Jack DeMao, and 94% of reviewers stating they would recommend the company.
Recently promoted Manager of Inside Sales Josh Ott, commented, "It means a great deal to me to work at a company where I can actually be an integral piece of the machine instead of a number. Plus I'm making customers happy by helping to secure their business, and that makes me happy in turn. I enjoy coming to work every day, and I'm not alone in that sentiment."
The rankings will be published in the August 2015 issue of SCBIZ magazine.
