Savage and Associates named a 2020 top workplace

Savage and Associates has been named one of the region’s top workplaces for the fourth consecutive year by the Toledo Blade.

For the second time in four years, Savage was the highest-ranked business on the list of midsize companies in the region (those employing 75-299).

“We are humbled and honored to receive this distinction for the fourth year in a row,” stated J.R. Toland, president and CEO, Savage and Associates. “The award is a direct result of the incredible passion from our advisors and staff.”

Being named a top workplace is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC.

The Blade partnered with Energage to conduct the anonymous survey that uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

“For more than a decade, the Top Workplaces award has helped organizations stand out among their competitors to attract talent,” said Eric Rubino, CEO, Energage. “This differentiation is more important than ever in today’s tight labor market. Establishing a continuous conversation with employees so you have a deep understanding of your unique culture is proven to help achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. No longer is recognition simply a much-deserved cause for celebration, but it’s fast becoming mission-critical to establish a competitive advantage for recruitment and retention.”

Third-party rankings and recognition are no guarantee of future investment success and do not ensure that a client—or a prospective client—will experience a higher level of performance or results. The rankings mentioned on this web page should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor by any client, nor are they representative of any one client evaluation.
