Karndean ranked 28th in the small company category, which is comprised of businesses with as many as 149 employees residing in the Pittsburgh region.
“We are thrilled to receive this award for the fourth year in a row,” said Larry Browder, CEO. “People matter at Karndean, and we wouldn’t be where we are today without the hard work and dedication of our entire team. As our US business continues to grow, we strive to maintain a working environment that is supportive, productive, and enjoyable.”
The Top Workplaces are determined solely on employee feedback. Employers are rated on factors including general job satisfaction, flexibility, perks and benefits such as healthcare, insurance and paid holidays, as well as rating aspects of leadership, career development, communication and engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 40 major publishing partners across the United States.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey added, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
