ORRVILLE, Ohio, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jarrett Companies has been recognized as a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Plain Dealer. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits," says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."

"We are very excited to be recognized as one of the Top Workplaces by The Plain Dealer for the second year in a row. We plan to continue our growth by remaining customer focused, cost competitive and invest significantly in great people and superior technology. To do this we will continue to recruit and retain people with character, respect and entrepreneurial spirit, who pursue excellence every day to serve our customers," Michael Jarrett, President, stated.
