We’re pleased to announce Woodruff Sawyer has been recognized as one of the “100 Best Places to Work in the North Bay” for the 9th time. This recognition is based on a number of criteria, including the size of the company and employee survey results. What makes the North Bay Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” award so special is that employee answers determine the winners. Employees in the firm’s North Bay Area workers were asked to complete an anonymous assessment of their company on such values as trust in leadership, team dynamics, personal engagement, the satisfaction of individual needs, and benefits and perks. The results are invaluable and can tell a company what they’re doing well, as well as where they can improve.
Woodruff Sawyer creates an engaging, collaborative environment for employees that’s not only fun but impactful. Every month, the firm sponsors a “Fun Squad” outing, featuring adventures like blind wine tastings, ping pong tournaments, and, in the future, an afternoon kayaking trip. Turning to the greater community, Woodruff Sawyer supports nonprofit organizations and charitable causes through the Community, Action, Responsibility, Enhancement (CARE) initiative. In 2017, CARE raised more than $50,000 and collected 1.5 tons of food.
During the October 2017 fires in the North Bay, in addition to donating to those in need, Woodruff Sawyer “provided meals to employees as well as gave all impacted people a bonus to offset expenses they had as the result of the fires.”
Employees comment the firm has a “great team atmosphere. Everyone does what’s needed to get the job done!” while another states,” I’m an 11-year employee and appreciate the mutual respect and appreciation from my coworkers and management here at Woodruff Sawyer.”
Adds one employee, ” We have a superb leadership team that is doing great work moving us forward from being a 20th-century workplace to a 21st-century visionary workplace.”
