The Philadelphia Inquirer Names The American College of Financial Services a Winner of the ...

April 13, 2021 GMT

King of Prussia, PA, April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The American College of Financial Services has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by Philadelphia Inquirer Top Workplaces for their efforts to create a people-centered culture. Based solely on the feedback provided through an employee survey, The College has been named a Top Workplace in Philadelphia for midsized companies. 


“Being recognized as a Top Workplace is about more than just offering great benefits and vacation time. Employees want to align with a company’s vision, be challenged by a high-performance culture, and feel that they are valued and that their voices are heard,” said George Nichols III, President and CEO of The College. “Through the advocacy and ideas of our culture committee, leadership training, frequent surveys, virtual social events, and a clear mission and vision to rally around, this success is all of our success and we take pride in effecting this kind of change.” 

The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few. The College also received specific badges for certain culture drivers ranked in the top 25% of organizations in our mid-sized company benchmark surveyed in the last 12 months, including: 

  • Clued-in Employees – Employees feel well-informed about the important decisions at The College
  • Trusted Leader – Employees have confidence in the leader of The College
  • Company Direction – Employees believe The College is going in the right direction 

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”
