VTS Earns 2021 Great Place to Work Certification™ Amid A Year That Has Redefined the Workplace
As commercial real estate’s leading leasing, marketing, and asset management technology platform, VTS is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for 2021. Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation. This prestigious award is based entirely on what our current employees say about their experience working at VTS. This year, 95% of employees agreed that VTS is a great place to work — which is four points higher than average US companies.
How did VTS earn the 2021 Great Place to Work Certification?
As an organization, we pride ourselves on our company culture and values, and VTS understands that our employees deserve the best the industry has to offer. Our competitive perks package includes generous leave policies for primary and secondary caregivers, unlimited paid time off, flexible work schedules, and an annual stipend for continued education. In the Great Place to Work Certification™ process, 96% agree that VTS’ management shows appreciation for good work and extra effort — proving hard work and creativity rarely goes unnoticed at VTS.
We’re also deeply committed and have made significant investments in our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts. VTS fundamentally believes in the importance of, and responsibility to, create an environment that celebrates diverse ethnicities, experiences, and points of view. To that end, we have an employee-led Diversity and Inclusion Working Group and an annual Strategic Diversity and Inclusion Plan (SDIP) to raise the bar.
Becoming a Great Place to Work Amid a Year That Has Redefined the Workplace
VTS also continues to make significant investments to ensure we are recruiting the best people and providing them with a workplace and culture that they love coming to every single day to do their best work. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on work-life balance, VTS reevaluated and upgraded our employee benefits and perks to assist in the transition to remote work, including providing a budget for setting up a work from home space; hosting group wellness, meditation, and workout sessions every week via Zoom conducted by qualified instructors; offering a coach focused on aiding employees through challenges related to COVID-19, careers, relationship, and overall well-being; and much more.
