It’s Official: ESD is a Great Place to Work!

Global authority on gauging workplace culture and employee engagement has certified ESD among the top companies in the country to work for.

Great Place to Work (GPTW) is an independent organization that collects feedback on employee work experiences to help organizations uncover actionable insights and get recognized for their great company culture. ESD employees answered survey questions which were anonymously sent to GPTW for independent compilation and analysis. The result—78 percent of our employees say ESD is a great place to work, well above the typical U.S.-based company average of 57 percent.

When asked “Why work at ESD?,” some common themes appeared as reflected in this word cloud drawn from employee responses on the Trust Index survey.

Great Place to Work

Other notable observations coming out of the survey include:

  • 91% say people at ESD are given a lot of responsibility
  • 90% agree management is honest and ethical in its business practices
  • 88% say they are proud to tell others they work at ESD

Managing Director of Human Resources Julie Nagle says, “This prestigious recognition is determined by input on our company culture by the people who live it—our employees.” CEO Zac House added, “This independent certification means ESD is recognized as one of the best companies to work for in the country. We will continue to work to earn this designation every day.”
