June 16, 2016 – DigitalGlobe, Inc. has been selected as one of the top 50 most engaged workplaces in North America by Achievers, an industry leader in employee recognition and rewards solutions.
The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces award honors the employers in North America that best display leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces each year. The winners were chosen by a panel of judges comprised of employee engagement academics, thought leaders and influencers, from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), TLNT.com, and HRO Today.
DigitalGlobe was evaluated in eight categories that Achievers identifies as essential to engaged workplaces: vision and values, culture, rewards and recognition, professional and personal growth, corporate social responsibility, communication, accountability and performance, and leadership.
“The foundation of all that we do at DigitalGlobe is our Purpose, Vision, and Values,” said Grover Wray, DigitalGlobe SVP and Chief Human Resources Officer. “Our Purpose of Seeing a Better World defines our culture, drives our work, and creates a deeply felt understanding that what we do matters. It’s an honor to be recognized for employee engagement by an independent panel of engagement experts. The areas of focus for this award have long been at the forefront of DigitalGlobe’s efforts to foster a culture of leadership and create an environment that enables team members to do their best work, to feel valued, and to be connected to the greater good our work provides to the world.”
“Engaging employees and promoting positive workplace culture are now top priorities for business leaders in North America, and the elite companies on this list are already ahead of their peers and seeing positive effects from their programs,” said David Brennan, Achievers General Manager. “This award validates these companies’ commitments to creating a people-first focus and recognizes how having an engaged workplace has positive impacts across the business. Our sincere congratulations to all of the 2016 winners!”
