THE GUNTER GROUP RANKS #3 IN THE SMALL COMPANY CATEGORY ON THE OREGON BUSINESS 100 BEST COMPANIES TO WORK FOR IN OREGON

The Gunter Group is excited to be recognized as #3 in the small company category on the Oregon Business ‘100 Best Companies to work For’  in Oregon. The company received the honor at the 23rd Annual 100 Best Companies celebration dinner on March 3 at the Oregon Convention Center. Upon receiving the award, Ashleigh Gunter, Partner, said, “It really is an honor and I am humbled, but the credit really goes to our entire team; they earned this.”  

The event honors the top 100 companies to work for in Oregon, divided into three categories based on company size. The evening focused on recognizing the people that are essential for businesses to succeed – employees. The Top 100 ranking is based on confidential employee surveys with questions related to workplace satisfaction including benefits, management, trust, work environment, and career development. This year, over 235 companies and 10,730 employees participated in the survey.

As part of the survey, one of the  consultants in The Gunter Group wrote the firm has “a high caliber of professionals who want nothing more than for all the team members to succeed and do what’s best for our clients.” Ralph Pero, a consultant with the firm, said “Mike and Ashleigh [Gunter] recognize and embrace the power of great people and empower the company to pursue a common culture driving collaboration and success.”

Over the past two years, The Gunter Group has not only been recognized as one of Oregon’s best employers, but has also earned high marks in employee engagement, ranking in the 92nd percentile of small businesses. We are proud of these achievements and continue to find innovative ways to create a positive and rewarding environment, while ensuring the best client delivery.  Kimberly Darin, a consultant at the firm, said “I want to retire here- which is rare for a young person to say about a company.”  

The Gunter Group is proud to be recognized as part of this group of outstanding companies, and especially honored to be on the list for the second consecutive year.

THE GUNTER GROUP RECEIVES GREAT RESULTS 2ND YEAR IN A ROW ON THE GALLUP EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT SURVEY

The Gunter Group recently participated in the second annual Gallup Employee Engagement Survey. The results were very positive, which puts TGG in the 92nd percentile among small organizations that completed the survey.  TGG ranked in the 99th percentile for overall satisfaction, reflecting the fact that our employees feel their input is valued and that we are committed to building a great team.  After reviewing the summary results, Founding Partner, Mike Gunter said, “Our philosophy is that our team members come first.  We could not be more proud of or happier about these results.”

In the 1990s Gallup did extensive research to identify obstacles that affect company growth and success. This led to their groundbreaking Employee Engagement Survey,which includes twelve workplace elements that impact organizational development.  Gallup characterizes engaged employees as those that are “involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work.”  Survey results consistently show that that a highly engaged workforce leads to improved employee retention, productivity and revenue.

According to Gallup’s June Monthly Report, only 31% of U.S. employees are truly engaged at work. These low numbers mean that employees are failing to develop and fully contribute at work. Maintaining an environment where employees feel engaged, rewarded and empowered is a priority for The Gunter Group. As The Gunter Group matures, we’re focused on maintaining a collaborative and rewarding environment where employees have a sense of autonomy and confidence in their work while feeling connected and supported within our team.  This results in greater customer satisfaction and reinforces our commitment to building strong client relationships.

The Gunter Group is proud to receive such high results a 2nd year in a row on our overall employee engagement. This achievement along with  being selected as one of the 2016 ‘100 Best Companies to work for in Oregon’, clearly differentiates The Gunter Group as an exemplary up and coming firm that strives to create  an exceptional culture of talented employees who are committed to building success within our firm, our team and our clients.
