San Antonio, Tx (October 25, 2016)

San Antonio, Texas (October 25, 2016) – Kiolbassa Provision Company has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The San Antonio Express-News. 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 oftentimes, 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.”

“The Kiolbassa difference is not only seen in our products, but the people who make them,” said Michael Kiolbassa, president and CEO of Kiolbassa. “We’re so honored to receive this award and will continue to invest in and support our employees, providing them with a company culture they can be proud of.”
