Sports medal with the word Winner

Posted On July 2, 2019

Flat World Holdings is proud to announce that it has been awarded a 2019 Top Workplaces honor by The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. This is the second consecutive year the Flat World family of companies has received this recognition.

The list of honorees is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“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.”

The award is the latest honor for Flat World Holdings, which received an Arcus Award for Achievement in Logistics from the St. Louis Regional Chamber in 2018, along with being named a Top Workplace two years in a row.

“We promise our customers excellence, and we couldn’t deliver on this promise without an internal culture focused on excellence,” said Flat World Holdings Managing Partner and co-founder Kirk Ferrell. “While company leadership plays a big role in creating any organization’s culture, our employees make Flat World Holdings a special place to work. You can see that in their commitment to our customers, to each other, and to their community.”

“When Kirk and I founded this company, one of our visions was making it the type of organization where employees are excited about coming to work,” said Jeff Rothermich, Flat World Holdings Managing Partner and co-founder. “Our team makes it a priority to support each other, solve important problems for customers, and make our community a better place. I can say that we are prouder of this recognition than other award we receive.”
