The Denver market was so excited to find out that we were selected as one of the best places to work in Denver as part of The Denver Post’s annual list of Top Workplaces! Managers from each of our three Denver-area stores (Cherry Creek, Park Meadows and FlatIron Crossing) represented our teams at an event to celebrate all the companies selected. There were 978 companies initially invited to participate, 39,636 employees surveyed, and we, The Container Store, came in at #2 in the “small employers” category (“fewer than 150 local employees”)!!! And, we were THE ONLY RETAILER included on the entire list!
We also received recognition in the Special Awards category for Communication, which really made us put to use the noise-makers they had provided for each table! It was incredibly special to hear from many business leaders throughout our community about how much they appreciate and respect The Container Store and hear how similarly they feel about their employees. The winner of our size category talked about how if you hire the right people, treat them well and then ask them to do something simple, they’ll give you so much more. It was inspiring to hear our company’s ideals echoed among other successful companies.
This recognition from our unmatched, fabulous employees means so much to us and emphasizes that no matter what happens, we’re all committed to staying true to our employee-first culture.
