Merchants Fleet, the nation’s fastest-growing fleet management company is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the sixth year in a row. This prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience at the company, and this year Merchants’ employee satisfaction rate is 51% higher than that of the average US-based company.
Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
“This year’s Certification is especially significant for our team, who worked incredibly hard to keep our wonderful corporate culture alive despite a year of distancing and uncertainty in the world,” said Alicia Hart, VP of Human Resources at Merchants Fleet. “Our employees have really gone above and beyond to stay focused and connected to our clients, and to each other, this year, even when it wasn’t always easy due to the challenges of the pandemic. Merchants truly is a remarkable place to work, and we are so proud to be receiving this award for the sixth year in a row.”
During the pandemic, the Merchants team developed a system for even more frequent communication, outreach and support, including support for employees with school kids at home; weekly virtual ‘hangouts’ with contests, holiday activities, and even a company-wide talent show; employee appreciation days, expanded training opportunities; and more.
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
