LOS ANGELES, Aug. 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving®, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, today announced that it was named one of the "Best Places to Work" in greater Los Angeles for the sixth consecutive year. This ninth annual program was created by the Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group.
The survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Los Angeles, benefiting the county's economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 100 companies. NorthStar Moving ranked an impressive #24 in the best medium sized company category, jumping up three places from last year.
Companies from across the county entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Los Angeles, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.
"The fact that our team members actually think this highly of working here is our greatest achievement," said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder and CEO Ram Katalan. "Knowing that their experiences are positive ones gives me a lot of pride. Our goal is to create a place where people love to come to work everyday, it's just simple: happy team members mean we can provide stellar service and the end result is happy clients. Earning this recognition from our team members consecutively for the past six years means we are truly successful. Our team is the heart of NorthStar Moving and without them we wouldn't be where we are today."
NorthStar Moving continually seeks fun new ways to motivate its employees. From flexible work schedules and work at home options, gym and showers in the office, allowing dogs to come to work, company sponsored lunches, backyard BBQs, to a company sponsored soccer team that competes in a local community league, there is no shortage of fun and team building. NorthStar Moving team members also love the fact that they can feel great about the quality of work they do for their clients and the community. The company pays their team members to volunteer in the community and just completed a very successful third annual summer food drive in partnership with Coldwell Banker. NorthStar Moving team members value the difference that NorthStar Moving is making in the community from its green practices to strong involvement in many charitable events throughout the year.
The rankings are published in the August 24, 2015, issue of the Los Angeles Business Journal. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles program, visit www.BestPlacestoWorkLA.com.
