Do satisfied and happy employees define a workplace? Indubitably yes, for it’s they who ultimately determine and define what the company stands for. In turn, by putting people ahead of its profits, VoIP Supply has earned itself the distinction of being nominated for the ‘Best Place to Work Award’ for the seventh time in its 12-year history.
"The Best Places to Work award is one that we try to earn every year," said Ben Sayers, CEO of VoIP Supply.
Quantum (News - Alert) Workplace, business culture consultants, examined employee engagement levels of Buffalo-area companies in three key areas: discretionary effort; intent to stay and advocacy. VoIP Supply was nominated as a ‘Best Places to Work’ in Western New York, presented by Buffalo Business First Newspaper.
So what is it about VoIP Supply that makes it tick for employees - It’s all about employees totally identifying themselves with the company and linking its success to theirs.
"Everyone at VoIP Supply has a positive energy and a daily determination to be ridiculously dependable and responsive when helping each other and their customers, making this a great place to work," said Sayers.
Employers hire on the basis of skill and talent and pay employees for performing certain tasks, but when an employee goes the extra mile beyond the requirements of the job, it is that discretionary effort that makes them valuable to the organization.
Steady, dependable and reliable employees are the ones that companies can count on when they are down and out. In good times, they work hard to ensure clients are satisfied, meet deadlines, have positive relationships with co-workers – in short, are loyal to the company—a scarce commodity these days.
But all this doesn’t just happen - employees don’t become that way unless they are treated well, respected, inspired, and energized by the company.
"This nomination is so important to us because it has nothing to do with our financial success; it reflects VoIP Supply's culture of putting people ahead of profits,” noted Sayers, commenting on the award.
VoIP Supply has big goals, a clear vision, defined purpose, and a team of passionate business professionals that love what they do. It claims to be a place of uncovering, cultivating, and developing leaders – in essence it provides the environment where talent, skill, and dedication is recognized and rewarded.
It’s no wonder then that its employees regard VoIP Supply as the best place to work in Western New York.
