The votes are in; Stewart has once again been named one of the Best Places to Work of 2019! We have been honored in both the Triangle and Charlotte by the Triangle Business Journal, Charlotte Business Journal, and the Charlotte Observer! This award is based solely on employee surveys, which are emailed directly and submitted anonymously in order to receive the most honest feedback about each employer on overall employee satisfaction.
Kasia Nels, Director of Human Resources, cannot contain her excitement about Stewart’s win. “We are so humbled to win ‘Best Places to Work.’ More importantly, through the way our employees answered the survey questions, it is heartwarming to hear that our employees are happy, that they feel valued, and that they truly enjoy those they get to work beside. We have the best people! Stewart employees are smart, kind, and engaged,” she explains, “we are grateful that they trust and respect us enough to provide open and honest feedback. We take their feedback and then implement change to improve the workplace experience. Stewart employees are our differentiator, and they are the reason we are a best place to work.”
At Stewart, we believe the keys to our success in boosting employee positivity and increasing workplace fulfillment are our core values represented by THREAD: Trust, Humility, Respect, Excellence, Accountability, and Discipline. These values have been taught to every employee through multi-day classes led by our Executive Leadership Team. George Stanziale, President, believes that THREAD is a defining quality as a company saying, “At Stewart, our focus on how we work and how we treat each other and our clients through THREAD values is to be our legacy.”
While many factors make for a great place to work, Stewart believes the culture is what really sets us apart. We see the future of Stewart and THREAD as beyond the walls of each office and into the lives of our community. Mike Krannitz, Chief Administrative Officer, notes, “Whether considered individually or as a group, the THREAD experience is a journey. Each individual will be on a different pace. At a minimum, THREAD has been woven into our daily conversation.”
