Premium has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by the Post-Dispatch. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “It’s an achievement that organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”

Research shows that organizations that earn this award are known to attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are more equipped to deliver profitable results.

Premium Owner and CEO, Brian Travers explains, “As Premium has continued to grow year over year, our Culture Team has been increasingly focused on maintaining an atmosphere for our employees that aligns with our core values – family, partnership, creativity, integrity and eclipsing expectations. We could not have accomplished this award without the dedication of our Premium family to emulate these values in everything we do, and we’re so grateful to have such an incredible team to share this with.”

Thanks to all our Premium employees for making Premium a Top Workplace.
