St. Louis Post-Dispatch Names Guarantee Electrical As One of St. Louis’ Best Places to Work for 2014
Being listed among the top places to work in St. Louis doesn’t just happen. For most employees at companies on the list, it takes a level of trust and purpose beyond the traditional paycheck and benefits package. According to the employee-owners at Guarantee Electrical, that cultural mindset is pervasive and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch agrees. As one of 47 newcomers to the list, GECO employees were asked to respond to 22 statements rating their workplace on a seven-point scale from “strongly disagree” to “strongly agree.” 84 of the 90 employees responded to the survey, far surpassing the 35% minimum participation requirement. When asked about their jobs, most employees tended to emphasize intangibles, most notably a connecting pride as an employee owner, confidence in company leadership, strong community values and impeccable ethics.
Doug Mertzlufft, President, added “We are very excited to be listed as one of the top places to work in St. Louis. It is truly an honor. We could not make this list without the tireless efforts that our employee owners bring to the office and field with them every day. Their commitment, dedication and enthusiasm for Guarantee Electrical is unparalleled”
