The Ken Blanchard Companies Wins 2019 Top Workplaces Award

SAN DIEGO, CA—(November 18, 2019) The Ken Blanchard Companies®, a global leader in management training, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The San Diego Union-Tribune. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee-engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.

“The Top Workplaces award is about much more than recognition and celebration,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows that these organizations achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. It just goes to show that being intentional about culture delivers bottom-line results.”

In all, 2,028 employers in San Diego County were invited to take part in the survey; 85 scored well enough to earn recognition on the Top Workplaces list. Blanchard® ranked #20 in the midsized company category.
 
“We are honored to receive this recognition,” said Tom McKee, CEO of The Ken Blanchard Companies. “We help clients around the world create engaged and productive workplaces, so we strive to be the kind of organization we teach about. It’s important to us to make a difference in the lives of our employees as well as our clients. I believe the meaningful work we do makes our employees proud to be a part of Blanchard.”
