Growers Earns 2021 Great Place to Work Certification™

Durham NC — Growers is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for 2021. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Growers. This year, 95% of employees said that Growers is a great place to work – 36 points higher than the average U.S. company.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation.

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Growers is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

“We’ve been consciously working on our company culture for the past year and to receive this recognition and become “Great Place to Work-Certified” is a huge testament to the team at Growers and their commitment to the organization,” said Steven Valencsin, CEO of Growers.

Too often, an employee is valued more for how much output they can generate over anything else. Growers prides itself in making employees a priority. The company culture motto is “Think Like an Owner” in all aspects of the job. By encouraging an atmosphere of ownership, employees are made to feel valued and respected. 

According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits, and have a fair chance at promotion.
