The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette named Dagostino Electronic Services a winner of the Pittsburgh Top Workplaces award for the third time during an elegant celebration at the Rivers Casino.
The Top Workplaces award is based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey research partner, Energage LLC. Energage measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, among others.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
One of the ways that DES builds a healthy workplace culture is actively listening to employee feedback. That feedback led to the creation of the digital transformation team. The digital transformation team, made up of a top employee from each department, meets monthly to evaluate and discuss the technology the company uses and ways to continually improve our systems.
“Employee engagement comes from listening to our employees and implementing their ideas,” said Chuck Roberts, vice president of DES. “We have a great team that is passionate about their work, which enhances the work we deliver.”
Roberts and Gina Maietta, a DES account manager, attended the ceremony on behalf of the company.
“DES really is a top workplace,” Maietta said. “It’s a great family-type environment with an all hands on deck atmosphere. All of my colleagues are extremely knowledgeable and it’s easy to work with them.”
DES offers employees competitive benefits like free training and professional development, fully covered health insurance, and company events to blow off steam.
“We put a lot of effort into what we can offer our employees,” said Molly DiFiore, director of marketing at DES. “We want to focus on celebrating their knowledge and their dedication to the work they do for the company.”
DES is honored to be part of an exclusive list of Pittsburgh businesses that garnered the award.
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
