McKinney Capital is honored to have placed 5th in the large employers category at the BBJ’s Best Places to Work awards. Finalists were honored at an Oscars themed awards luncheon at the Sheraton Birmingham. The 35 companies represented were the top scorers on a recent employee survey conducted by Quantum Workplace.
The survey used by the Best Places to Work program measures employee engagement, which represents the degree employees will go above and beyond in their work, advocate for the organization, and intend to stay in the future. Metrics measured include trust in leadership, risk retention and team effectiveness. Over 100 employees at McKinney Capital and portfolio companies Satellites Unlimited, Landscape Workshop, Pixsys Technologies, Digital Electronic Supply, and Automation Unlimited participated in the survey, which indicated an employee engagement rate over 90%. Survey results also revealed that employees believe that the leaders of the organization value people as their most important resource and see professional and career development opportunities for themselves in the organization. Employees were also given the option to provide feedback on the organization, which included the following commentary:
McKinney Capital is built on the foundation of our core values. For a lot of companies, values are just a piece of paper. At MC, these values guide our behaviors, expectations, decision making, and strategy. MC is comprised of a group of passionate, hard working, and dedicated individuals that made a choice to join this team. Our level of talent would rival any Fortune 500 company and our employees stay with us because of the vision, strategy, opportunity, and culture that the senior leaders create. Several of our top executives came from respected organizations…where they had great careers ahead of them. However, they made the decision to join MC because of the environment they get to work in. An environment of challenge, reward, collaboration, respect, development, and trust. MC will undoubtedly be the premiere field services organization in the southeast in the next 10 years. We understand that talented people are they key to achieving this vision and the company intentionally allocates a lot of its capital to attract, develop, and retain this talent. I have been here 8 years and feel strongly that very few companies could compete with MC as the best place to work. Come spend a day here and you will walk away with the same feeling.”
