San Diego, CA – Goal Structured Solutions, Inc. (“GS2”), an award-winning, employee-owned education finance asset management company, has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The San Diego Union-Tribune. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
“We are pleased to have been recognized by the San Diego Union Tribune as a Top Workplace in the San Diego area, especially since this was our first year applying,” said Ken Ruggiero, Chairman and CEO at GS2. “The talented and committed employees that work at GS2 are very much the key to our success and we are honored that their efforts at creating an incredible corporate culture and their dedication to the local community have been applauded by SDUT.” Sandra Reynaga, Manager of Human Resources added, “GS2’s values driven culture is derived from our passionate individual contributors. We know our most significant resource is our people, and we are dedicated to providing an environment that allows each of them the opportunity to perform to his or her greatest potential. We truly believe the success of our organization can be attributed to our employees’ dedication, pride, and outstanding work ethic.”
Goal Structured Solutions has also been named “Best Places to Work in San Diego” for 2015 and 2016 by the San Diego Business Journal, Best Companies Group. If you are interested in working at GS2 please email your resume to [email protected].
