After nearly doubling its staff last year, Better Business Bureau Serving Central, Northern and Western Arizona (BBB) is honored as a 2017 azcentral.com® Top Companies to Work for in Arizona for the fifth consecutive year. “It’s very rewarding to work with people that embody what BBB stands for,” said BBB President/CEO Matthew Fehling. “Even though our culture has been naturally shaped by the great people who work here, in the last 18 months, we’ve intentionally focused on initiatives that encourage personal growth and giving back to the communities we serve. Winning this award for the fifth year in a row is truly a reflection of everyone coming together to make a difference in our community.” All participating companies completed a two-part assessment process conducted by the independent workplace research firm, Best Companies Group (BCG). Part one of process was the Employer Questionnaire, where BCG asked about benefits, HR policies and fun things the employers do for employees. Part two was the Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey, which measured the employee experience. Using the combined data from the assessment, BCG determined the top 100 organizations that made the grade. “The Top Company list gets more competitive each year,” says Denise Gredler, Founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and consulting partner for the program. “The list of winners had very impressive employee-survey results averaging an overall favorable rate of 90 percent, and an overall employee engagement score of 92 percent, which is more than double the national average.” Last year, BBB moved to a 30,000 sq. ft., three-building campus in central Phoenix. After opening the doors to its Business & Community Center in May 2017, the campus quickly became a meeting and training destination for local businesses with over 40 reservations and 800+ attendees a month. Likewise, more than 11,900 Accredited Businesses throughout Greater Arizona support BBB’s mission of advancing marketplace trust. Each month, the local organization receives more than 350,000 website sessions (visits) and processes over 4,000 disputes and customer reviews. Additionally, it provides community outreach and educational business seminars throughout its campuses in Maricopa, Mohave, Yavapai and Yuma counties.For complete details visit arizonabbb.org or topcompanies.azcentral.com.
