Peckham, Inc. was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best workplaces for giving back in the United States. Peckham came in 38th on the list because of its commitment to helping others within the organization and the communities it serves.
To create this list, Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work surveyed more than 240,000 randomly-selected employees and collected information from nearly 600 organizations.
“The foundation of Peckham is built on helping others, we are very proud to be recognized for the work we do,” said Mitch Tomlinson, President & CEO of Peckham. “Our mission of people helping people spans the entire company, it creates a sense of value for our employees.”
Peckham and the other winning companies were selected based on responses to the Trust Index©, Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey. Employees rated their workplaces based on the following categories: a sense of making a difference in their jobs, the meaningfulness of their work, and the impact they feel their organizations make in the community. The list also took into account company programs and an analysis of anonymous employee comments about their workplaces.
“We get to live out our values both inside and outside our work at Peckham and that’s pretty amazing,” said Scott Derthick, Chief People and Culture Officer. “People matter to us, a whole lot and we are committed to giving back and fulfilling that value.”
Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
