American Transmission Co. is one of the country’s best workplaces for giving back
PEWAUKEE, Wis. – American Transmission Co. has been named one of the Best Workplaces for Giving Back for the second consecutive year by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
The national list is based on more than 350,000 surveys of employees across a range of industries, as well as their organizations’ charitable programs and giving.
“As a company, we care about the communities we serve, and our employees are generous with their time and money,” said ATC President and CEO Mike Rowe. “Last year, our employees logged almost 19,000 volunteer hours to help organizations that are important to them. They also have increased their pledges to United Way for seven consecutive years.” In addition, the company donated $690,000 to benefit more than 400 organizations providing important services to local communities last year.
Great Place to Work’s research found that employees who are strongly connected to their organization’s positive influence on the community have 4 to 11 times the productivity, commitment, brand ambassadorship and overall work experience as their peers. As a result, people at winning workplaces report more pride in their employers and experience deeper meaning in their day-to-day work.
“The Best Workplaces for Giving Back are accomplishing something greater than the sum of their contributions to worthy causes. They also offer employees a sense they’re part of something bigger that’s making a difference in the world,” said Chinwe Onyeagoro, president of Great Place to Work.
The Best Workplaces for Giving Back is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work–Certified™ organizations.
