Arlington, VA – The 7th Annual Great Place to Work® Rankings: 2010 Best Small & Medium Workplaces Presented by Entrepreneur® was announced on September 8 and DELTA Resources Inc. is ranked 25th on the list. The list represents the best workplaces separated into two categories: small companies with 50-250 employees and medium companies with 251-999 employees. Great Place to Work® Institute, based in San Francisco, produces the Best Small & Medium Workplaces list each year.
CEO Maria Proestou is honored that DELTA’s employees helped the company earn this important recognition. “DELTA’s selection validates that our trust-based workplace culture truly provides an environment that nurtures excellence.”
DELTA was selected as a winner for this list by participating in the Great Place to Work® Institute’s selection process which includes a survey of DELTA’s employees based on the Trust Index© and a completed a questionnaire by DELTA about programs and company practices. The Great Place to Work® Institute evaluated the company based on five areas: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. The Institute’s unique methodology measures the level of trust that exists between employees and management, the pride employees express about the company, and the camaraderie employees share.
“Trust-based workplace cultures make a better place to work for employees and create a competitive advantage for the organization,” said Ricardo Lange, President of Great Place to Work® Institute. “All of the companies selected for the Great Place to Work® Rankings: 2010 Best Small & Medium Workplaces Presented by Entrepreneur® have cultivated a trust based work culture and have accomplished a lot of hard work in order to make it onto the list.”
DELTA’s selection as a Great Place to Work follows its recognition in March 2010 by the White House “Forum on Workplace Flexibility”; where DELTA was invited to participate in a forum to assist the Obama administration in identifying workplace flexibility tools to benefit workplace performance. Benefits include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, greater innovative thinking and creativity, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
