ATLANTA (August 16, 2022) — Rural Sourcing has recently been Certified™ by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture. The prestigious award is based entirely on what colleagues say about their experience working at Rural Sourcing. This year, 89% of colleagues said it’s a great place to work – 32 points higher than the average U.S. company.
As a purpose-driven organization, Rural Sourcing (backed by Bain Capital Double Impact) continues to expand on its mission of creating technology careers in Middle America, while also making a positive impact on its communities. In the past year, Rural Sourcing acquired leading digital engineering company, Centare, and added two new development centers in Baton Rouge, La. And Buffalo, N.Y., increasing the company’s footprint to three new states and a total of ten development centers. The company also hired Chief People Officer Robin Stenzel to ensure that colleague experience is always top of mind.
“We’ve prioritized creating a welcoming workplace where colleagues of all backgrounds can grow in their careers,” said Robin Stenzel, Chief People Officer at Rural Sourcing. “Our colleagues are working on meaningful projects and progressing their careers. That can only happen when our people are able to bring their whole selves to work. The Great Place to Work® certification is recognition of our commitment to building a culture that values colleagues, clients and community.
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Rural Sourcing is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
