Top Workplaces 2017

Long & Foster Real Estate has once again been honored by The News Journal as one of the 2017 Top Workplaces in Delaware. The company earned the No. 1 ranking among large companies on the Top Workplaces list as well as the award for “Clued-in Senior Management.”

The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm specializing in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture are measured in the survey, including alignment, execution and connection.

“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. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

This is Long & Foster’s second year on the Delaware Top Workplaces list, and in recent years the company has been recognized as a top workplace in other areas in which it operates, including Richmond, Virginia. Throughout Long & Foster’s nearly 50-year history, the company has been dedicated to helping its agents and employees succeed while assisting clients with all their real estate needs and guiding them on their journeys home.

“We are honored to have once again been recognized as one of the top places to work in the First State,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “In the last few years, we’ve worked diligently to grow Long & Foster’s presence in Delaware, and receiving awards such as this one helps validate our efforts and our dedication to all our agents, employees and clients throughout the state.”
