What makes a company a great place to work? Is it bringing your dog to the office, yoga classes at lunch, book clubs with coworkers and company trips to exciting destinations? Those things are all great — and are all things we offer at Goodway Group — but they aren’t what truly makes our company a great place to work. Our culture is.
Last week, Goodway Group was certified as a great workplace by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work®. Great Place to Work produces the annual Fortune “100 Best Companies to Work For®” list among others. A first-time recipient of this recognition, we’re thrilled to find out that 98% of our employees say our workplace is great.At Goodway Group, 98% of employees say their workplace is great.

Winning a spot on this year’s Great Place to Work list required an in-depth assessment through the stringent Trust Index® survey. Over 200 of our employees (more than half our workforce population) participated in the vetting process, while our company contributed to an extensive questionnaire on our benefits, compensation policies, community impact, gender diversity and more.
The employee assessment asked our staff to rate us on 58 statements about behaviors that indicate the company’s credibility, respect and fairness levels, as well as the individual’s level of pride and camaraderie in our workplace. In addition to answering these questions, participants were required to respond to 10 standard demographic categories, share their primary motivation for working here and given the opportunity to provide further feedback in two open-ended comment areas.
