Watco Certified as a Most Loved Workplace by Best Practice Institute
Watco, a leading transportation service and logistics company, has been certified as a Most Loved Workplace by Best Practice Institute (“BPI”).
BPI is an award-winning leadership development center, think tank, and research institute organization based in Pam Beach Gardens, Florida. In a BPI-conducted survey, Watco team members rated the alignment of their personal values and Watco’s, the level of collaboration at the company, their feelings about respect and career achievement, and the future of the company.
“We’re excited to have this official certification from BPI,” said Watco Chief People Officer Rachael Peterson. “It’s meaningful because it takes into account more than the benefits Watco offers. The survey results and certification are really a validation of the culture that our team members create and enjoy. This honor is a testament to our team members.”
With the BPI designation, Watco joins successful companies recognized around the world that also are Most Loved Workplaces. BPI's research proves that Most Loved Workplaces produce 3-4 times better customer service, employee performance, and retention than companies not loved by their employees.
“We work hard to maintain a culture where people are valued,” said Watco Chief Executive Officer Dan Smith. “There’s no better compliment than having the team recognize Watco as a Most Loved Workplace. That means that we’re doing our job and creating a workplace where we value people.”
The certification status qualifies Watco for consideration in the annual Top 100 List of America’s Most Loved Workplaces that’s published in Newsweek. Newsweek’s rankings are anticipated in October 2022.
