According to a poll by Fast-Company Harris, 59% of middle-income workers are contemplating changing jobs this year. While this number comes as a staggering surprise to most employers, this statistic doesn’t prove true for APS employees. APS’ company culture awards have confirmed the organization’s employee sentiment to be the opposite. Out of 60,000 North American companies, our employees have ranked us in the top 5% of U.S. companies for Best Company Outlook in 2021.
Our employees have given us over 2,135 ratings, earning us a spot in the top 50 U.S. companies for Best 2021 Outlook. Ranking alongside companies like Zoom and Microsoft, this award demonstrates APS’ commitment to enhancing its technology for its customers while providing a positive workforce culture for its employees.
What is the Best Company Outlook Award?
Comparably presents the Best Company Outlook Award to companies that have already proven themselves successful throughout 2020 and continue to accomplish goals throughout 2021. Comparably collected ratings for the award during the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020 through March 2021), with its purpose to help current job-seekers find a great place to work.
How To Earn Best Company Outlook Awards
To earn Comparably awards like Best Company Outlook 2021, an organization must be successful at employee engagement and market positioning. Authentic employee ratings and sentiment about an organization’s success determine the award recipients.
An organization has to maintain a high level of employee engagement for workers to leave ratings in the first place. For the Best Company Outlook award, Comparably based rankings on a combination of questions, including:
How confident are you about the future success of your company?
Are you typically excited about going to work each day?
How likely are you to recommend working at your company to a friend?
These questions are where market positioning comes into play. The company needs to have already proven itself successful to its staff. Employees need to have a positive perception of a company’s goals and direction to rank it high for future success.
Note: Employees answered questions about their organizations anonymously and Comparably used their feedback to determine award recipients.
