We’re ‘Great Place to Work’ Certified But What Does That Mean for You & Your Roof Project? The job satisfaction of the team you choose for your roofing or reroofing job, whether you’re in Melbourne and beyond, may not be on top of your list when it comes to picking a contractor. However, we guarantee that it makes a difference. As ‘Great Place to Work’ certified, we know how much you stand to gain when your roofers love what they do and where they work. What Does It Mean to Be a ‘Great Place to Work’? While we’re sure you’ve heard lots of businesses proclaim that they’re great places to work, there is now a recognised certification that proves if these claims are true. Great Place to Work is a global authority on workplace culture, surveying employees over a 2-week period to understand where improvements can be made and what they love about their work. Utilising over 30 years of research experience, as well as up-to-date trends and analysis techniques, employees are asked for their thoughts, feelings, suggestions and actionable items in their workplace via specialist software. This allows for a cumulative understanding of the workplace, based on the three Great Place to Work tenets: trust in your team members, pride in your work and enjoying the company of the people you work with. The data gathered is then compared to companies across the globe to see how the business stands up. So, when a business or company is declared a ‘Great Place to Work’, it means that people love what they do and the company they work for. For instance, KC Roof Plumbing scores 100% as a great place to work, compared to the 56% that is typical of Australia-based businesses. As part of this, a Great Place to Work will have a strong positive work culture throughout the organisation. This can include how new employees are trained, how hardworking employees are rewarded, and how management aims to go above and beyond in creating an environment that promotes positive interactions and experiences. Similarly, when you’re a ‘Great Place to Work’, there is clear and open communication between team members, including managers and their teams. This allows for issues to be quickly recognised, investigated and handled with new improvements. Ultimately, the ‘Great Place to Work’ philosophy hinges on the very real evidence that happier workers are more productive. But What Does This Look Like at KC Roof Plumbing? As a recognised ‘Great Place to Work’, it’s fair to say that, at KC Roof Plumbing, we have a positive work culture. We believe in the success of our employees as individuals and as a team, providing opportunities for them to grow their skill sets and advance their professional expertise.
