The Oregonian names Jubitz a Winner of the Oregon Top Workplaces Award for Third Straight Year
September 24, 2020
Jubitz has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by The Oregonian for the third straight year. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
So what makes Jubitz a Top Workplace?
According to Chief Operating Officer Mark Gram, “The Jubitz family and Jubitz management team feel strongly about valuing and validating its employees. We make efforts to communicate often and to keep our employees safe and well, which is best said in one employee’s words: ‘Thank you for taking measures to keep us safe, employed, strong and united.’ This is especially true during these last 7 months.”
Jubitz has prioritized employee safety and wellbeing from the beginning of the pandemic, including installing plexiglass shields, providing masks for customers and employees and being flexible with employees who have faced obstacles like lack of childcare.
Jubitz also strives to offer a true team environment where everyone’s contributions are recognized, from cashier to CEO. Employees are given cash incentives, training and career development opportunities and awards for going above and beyond. In turn, their dedicated employees offer a World Class Customer Experience (WCCE) to every customer who walks in the door. Jubitz also provides full-time employees with access to medical, dental and vision insurance, free disability insurance, free group term life insurance, a free Employee Assistance Program (EAP), paid time off, a 401k retirement plan, tuition reimbursement and employee meal discounts.
