Colliers International Wins Top Workplaces Award
St. Louis Market Named by the Post-Dispatch in 2016
ST. LOUIS, June 27, 2016 — Colliers International Group Inc. (NASDAQ:CIGI, TSX:CIG) was recently awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Post-Dispatch for its regional operations in the St. Louis market. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm specializing in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.
“We’re thrilled to be listed as a top place to work in St. Louis,” says executive vice president and managing director of the St. Louis office Kevin Gallagher, CCIM, SIOR. “We work hard to establish an environment where employees feel valued and that their talents are utilized to the fullest.”
Colliers has professionals in six offices throughout the St. Louis region. Currently, the company manages over 7.1 million square feet of office, industrial, retail and multifamily property for clients. In 2015, the firm completed 321 brokerage assignments in excess of $323 million in transaction volume. With an entrepreneurial and collaborative culture, the local firm focuses on being a best-in-class commercial real estate services organization measured by client service, strong relationships and team success.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
