Alacrity Services, a Lowe’s Company, has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Oregonian. 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.”
Alacrity Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lowe’s, and provides a managed network of nationwide contractors who provide property repair and restoration services. With headquarters in Eugene, Oregon, a second office in Charlotte, North Carolina and remote staff strategically located across the nation, Alacrity Services has experienced strong growth in the past few years.
“We’re honored to be receiving this distinction for the second year in a row. This is more than an award for us. It’s a testament to our hardworking employees, who are the foundation of our company’s success and remarkable culture. Leading a company of talented and dedicated employees who love what they do is a privilege for me. They are the reason we continue to succeed,”
—Jonathan Miko, President of Alacrity Services.
