“Being a ‘Great Place to Work’ is a ringing endorsement of our employee culture at Gilchrist,” said Cathy Hamel, president of Gilchrist. “Our employees overwhelmingly share a sense of pride about their work and its impact on the community.”

According to the survey, 93 percent of Gilchrist employees say they feel good about the ways they contribute to the community, 92 percent say they feel a sense of pride about their work and 92 percent say their work has special meaning: it’s not "just a job."

"We applaud Gilchrist for seeking certification and releasing its employees' feedback," said Kim Peters, executive vice president of Great Place to Work's Certification Program. "These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees' trust and create a great workplace — critical metrics that anyone considering working for or doing business with Gilchrist should take into account as an indicator of high performance."
