Harbor Capital Advisors, Inc. has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by the Chicago Tribune. The list is based solely on anonymous employee feedback, via a third party survey gathered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization including: alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“It has been amazing yet not surprising to experience how our associates are continuing to rise and respond to Harbor clients during an unprecedented challenging time in the world,” said Charles McCain, CEO. Mr. McCain continued, “as a leader at Harbor, it was extremely important to me and our Management Team that we remain thoughtful and empathetic to what our associates are navigating in their personal and professional lives, and that we support them in every way. I’m thrilled they see that we recognize they are our most important asset.” Harbor continues to engage associates on multiple fronts, and acts on feedback from the associates. Decisions around returning in-person to the office, enhanced client service practices, and new associate onboarding have all been the result of associate feedback and implementation.
“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
