It’s a three-peat! We are proud to announce Premium has been recognized by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as a Top Workplace for the third year in a row.
The Top Workplaces award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution, and connection.
Our three-time Top Workplaces win validates the emphasis Premium places on the employee experience.
Premium established our Culture Team in December 2016 with the goal of increasing employee engagement, encouraging transparency throughout the workplace and giving back to the community.
In 2019, we doubled the team’s size to assist in growing connections between team members across all levels, functions, and locations.
The Culture Team leverages employee feedback as we plan future activities. In early 2020, the Culture Team deployed Premium’s first-ever engagement survey to the entire company. Our goal was to identify global wins, opportunities and solicit ideas to make work better for our teams.
We heard from over 2,000 employees – 84% were those who work in retail stores and 10% came from field managers and corporate employees. Based on the results, we’ve renewed our focus on employee learning and development, as well as enhancing the new hire onboarding experience as Premium continues to grow.
Team member recognition.
In August 2020, we rolled out our field recognition program called Premium Proud. This brand-new program identifies and rewards top-performing field team members. Premium Proud is a way for all of Premium to witness our field team’s wins, even when they’re tackling projects solo. Created and developed by Premium’s Culture Team, we encourage nominations year-round and identify $250 winners quarterly.
Also new in 2020, Premium has partnered with Hooray Health to provide our part-time team members with excellent employee benefits with economical options for them and their families. Our new health benefit options eliminate high costs and hidden fees associated with care.
Each quarter, we host livestream interviews with company leaders called Premium Now. During these livestreams, we ask Premium team leads questions about key industry trends, best practices, a day in the life, and more.
Premium CEOs Brian and Kevin Travers have been featured guests on Premium Now multiple times. They’ve committed to transparency, and have covered the state of the business, wins and challenges in our virtual town halls.
Research shows that organizations with the Top Workplace designation are known to attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are more equipped to deliver profitable results.
Cheers to three years as a Top Workplace – thanks to all of our employees for bringing Premium’s culture to life every day!
