News Release - 09-19-2013
Alexandria, Virginia- September 19, 2013- – DELTA Resources, Inc. was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best small and medium workplaces in the United States on their annual 2013 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published today in FORTUNE magazine. Ranked #24 this is the fourth year DELTA has received this honor. Divided into two categories, Small (50-250 employees) and Medium (251-999 employees), the list has recognized companies with exceptional workplace cultures for the past ten years.
Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, DELTA participated in a rigorous selection process, which included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
In compiling the list, Great Place to Work has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.
“Our culture at DELTA is built around mutual trust and empowerment in our employees,” said CEO Maria Proestou. “Our commitment to upholding these values, encouraging our employees to feel comfortable sharing their opinions and creating a positive work environment creates the foundation for our ‘best company’ work culture. It is truly an honor to be recognized again as a ‘best company’ and we couldn’t have done it without the hard work and dedication of our employees.”
“The companies appearing on our Best Small & Medium Workplaces list help us achieve our mission by presenting others with an example to emulate. These companies demonstrate that being an excellent employer leads to business success,” said Robert Levering, CEO and Co-founder of Great Place to Work®. “While these companies may be relatively small in headcount, many of them provide services to some of the country’s largest and most notable organizations, suggesting that success has not so much to do with size as with the quality of service and experience a company provides. A great workplace, full of great employees, is better equipped to achieve that success.”
Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
