Top Workplaces Award for Rollins
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has named Rollins Inc., the US’s biggest pest control company, in sixteen place in its annual ranking of the 150 largest “Top Workplaces” in the Metro Atlanta area.
The listing which is prepared for the newspaper by Energage (an independent supplier of technology-based employee engagement tools), scores 150 small, medium and large corporations by answers to questions provided by a sample of more than 80,000 employees representing 4,300 corporations.
Participants rate each employer’s by leadership alignment, business execution, and the degree of ‘connection’ they experience with work colleagues.
Rollins’14,000 global employees operate under fourteen pest-control brands. In Atlanta, the company employs 550 people at three locations.
Northwest Exterminating, the group’s Marietta, Georgia-based subsidiary, was also honoured with a 20th place Top Workplaces ranking in the midsize company category. The accolade is its eighth in successive years of the awards.
Commenting on both awards, John Wilson, Rollins’ President and COO, said:
“We strive each and every day to ensure our employees are taken care of and have the support they need. In turn, this helps us fulfill our mission of being the best customer service company in the world. Engaged employees help make happy customers, and we’re proud of the work our employees do to help us better serve our customers.”
Jerry Gahlhoff, President of the group’s Specialty Brands division and VP of Human Resources, said, “This award helps us recognize our employees for all they do to help build such a great workplace culture. It also reminds us there’s always room for improvement, and we will continue to strive for better each and every day across all our brands”.
He added, “We hope to be on this list for many years to come.”
