The results are in from our 2016 company-wide engagement survey, and not to brag, but they are fantastic. It’s been a pretty eventful year for us at EverBank, so as we share this news, we do so with a little extra dose of company pride. So what do the results, including thousands of individual comments tell us? They tell us that we’ve grown into a pretty great place to come and work.
We've always taken pride in our highly inclusive, open and collaborative company culture. And while there's always room for improvement, today, we celebrate. Then, tomorrow, we get back to work banging the engagement drum even louder. Because for all that our people have done and continue to do for us, it's the absolute least we can do.
Below, find out more about our commitment to employee engagement, and take an exclusive peek at a few of the stats from our 2016 engagement survey.
Seems pretty obvious, right? To truly gauge the engagement pulse of a company, it all starts with asking the right questions. At EverBank, we've been doing this via company-wide surveys since 2014, and we have no plans of stopping any time soon. This year, 2,452 employees completed the survey for an overall participation rate of 88 percent.
The next step is compiling the results and thoughtfully analyzing the data. As a relatively large company with people, offices and departments in various locations across the U.S., it's important that we assess the numbers and feedback not only across the company but also within and among teams and departments.
This year, we saw marked improvement from our 2015 survey, including across all 14 survey categories and indices.
