SproutLoud Named One of South Florida’s Top Workplaces by SunSentinel
SproutLoud, a leader in the Through-Channel Marketing Automation industry, was named as a 2018 Top Workplace by The SunSentinel. This honor was bestowed on 70 South Florida companies based solely on employee feedback gathered by a third-party research firm, Energage, LLC.
“We’re proud that SproutLoud employee feedback led to the company being recognized as a Top Workplace,” said Bill Cronic, Vice President of People and Organizational Development at SproutLoud. “It’s the combined expertise, creativity and energy of great people that drives SproutLoud to be a leader in our industry. We have a passion for what we do, and we love contributing to the communities where we live and work.”
Energage, the research partner behind the Top Workplaces program, has surveyed more than 47,000 organizations representing well over 16 million employees in the United States. The anonymous employee survey, used to evaluate whether companies meet the Top Workplaces criteria, measures various aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution and connection.
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
In fact, SproutLoud actively seeks anonymous employee feedback on a daily basis with a Mood App to track employees’ satisfaction regarding their work, the workplace culture and work/life balance. On a monthly basis, SproutLoud conducts Stop/Start/Keep lunches to get employee feedback on how the company can improve and remain a great place to work. Employees at every level also know the company’s executive team members have an open-door policy, and they receive meeting invitations every two weeks to attend C-suite open office hours.
“I am proud to be working for a company that places such a tremendous emphasis on respecting and responding to employee feedback,” Cronic said. “At SproutLoud, we care deeply about our people. We recognize that the only way we can put our Clients First is by putting our people first.”
