January 02, 2016

CHARLOTTE, NC (September 28, 2015) – Compass Group USA has been awarded a 2015 Top Workplaces honor by The Charlotte Observer. In the inaugural year for The Charlotte Observer Top Workplaces program, Compass Group ranked eighth in the large company category.

The Charlotte Observer published their first-ever Top Workplaces list for the Charlotte metro area in their September 27, 2015 issue. The Observer’s Top Workplaces list features the top 50 employers based on the results of an employee feedback survey. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection.

“Everything we do starts with our people,” says Gary Snyder, Chief People Officer, Compass Group North America. “We go above and beyond to offer our associates the most career opportunities and best work environment of any company in culinary and hospitality.”

According to the WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, who administered the survey , Top Workplaces are not only better places to work but are more likely to be successful than peer organizations.

“To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees, “says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics.

The survey was conducted on companies in all industry sectors across the region.
