Birmingham, AL — May 21, 2018 – We’re excited to announce that Main Street was ranked among Birmingham’s top companies in the 2018 Birmingham’s Best Places To Work competition sponsored by the Birmingham Business Journal, placing 9th as a Top 10 finalist in the large company category. The competition recognizes employers that have gone above and beyond to create outstanding workplace environments.
“Business can be tough and life outside of work can be tougher. Our desire is to make employees’ working life as fulfilling as possible so they have an easier time dealing with the real troubles that can occur away from the office,” said Ted Walton, President of Main Street, Inc. “The Main Street leadership team knows our people are our highest value, not our profits, and this recognition is an indicator we’re on the right path.”
The annual competition is based solely on the anonymous reviews of employees shared voluntarily through an online survey conducted by Quantum Workplace. It scores companies on various factors, from trust in leadership and company policies to teamwork and communication, among several other metrics.
“Each member of our management team has a vested interest in seeing our people grow in this organization whether it be in position or skill set,” said Jennifer Williams, Vice President of Human Resources. “We want every employee to leave Main Street a better person than when they arrived. I believe that spirit and attitude has contributed to being named a best in class employer.”
