The Oregonian names Jubitz a Winner of the Oregon Top Workplaces Award for Third Straight Year
September 24, 2020
Jubitz received the Top Workplaces award from The Oregonian for the third straight year. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. The anonymous survey is administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The data collection uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization. Attributes include 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. You 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. It is best exemplified 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 prioritized employee safety and wellbeing from the beginning of the pandemic. We’ve taken measures like installing plexiglass shields, providing masks for customers and employees and being flexible with employees who have faced obstacles like lack of childcare.
Jubitz strives to offer a true team environment where everyone’s contributions are recognized, from cashier to CEO. Employees receive 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 provides full-time employees with access to medical, dental and vision insurance. The benefits only get better with free disability insurance, free group term life insurance and a free Employee Assistance Program (EAP). This is all in addition to paid time off (PTO), a 401k retirement plan and employee meal discounts.
