The firm is touted for being a high-scoring business with standout employee engagement
SC&H Group, a nationally recognized management consulting, audit, and tax firm, has been named Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018, the publication’s third annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector. SC&H Group was the only Baltimore-area company to be featured in the magazine’s “large company” category and joins eight other Maryland-based companies on the list.
Hitting newsstands today in the June 2018 issue, and as part of a prominent inc.com feature, the award is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just under 300 winning companies.
Built in partnership with employee engagement and work culture experts Quantum Workplace of Omaha, NE, Inc.’s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent.
What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes them all work together.
SC&H Group’s Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Mack McGee, said of the award, “We hold this national, globally respected publication and fellow winners in high regard. This recognition validates our efforts to create a compelling, competitive, and meaningful workplace for our most valued assets at SC&H – our people. Investing in a culture that generates this achievement ensures our ongoing ability to provide the powerful minds and passionate teams our clients need, and expect, to deliver proven results.”
The 2018 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop:
- Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
- Workers at the best companies don’t view their employers as sugar daddies. They aren’t mesmerized by whatever giveaways seem to be the latest fad—be it gourmet lunches or beer fridges.
- When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.
“By including an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.” says James Ledbetter, Inc. editor-in-chief.
