THE PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE NAMES OMNI WILLIAM PENN HOTEL A WINNER OF THE GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA 2017 TOP WORKPLACES AWARD
Pittsburgh, PA. (August 21, 2017)
– Omni William Penn Hotel
has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Top Workplaces
lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC
, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And often times, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But 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. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
“Our company culture at Omni Hotels & Resorts empowers associates to care for our guests, our fellow associates and ourselves, which builds a strong sense of teamwork,” says Eric DeStefano, general manager of Omni William Penn Hotel. “This unique positioning we call the Power of One, really speaks to why our associates love their work and the teams they work with everyday. We are so proud to serve Pittsburgh and each and every one of our guests.”
