Brewer Science named a 2022 Top Workplace in the USA
Brewer Science, Inc. (Rolla, Missouri), a global leader in developing and manufacturing next-generation materials and processes for the microelectronics and optoelectronics industries, has been awarded the 2022 Top Workplaces USA Award, issued by Energage, a purpose-driven organisation that develops solutions to build and brand top workplaces. The Top Workplaces programme has a 15-year history of surveying more than 20 million employees and recognizing the top organisations across 60 markets for regional Top Workplaces awards.
Top Workplaces USA celebrates organisations with 150 or more employees that have built great cultures. Over 42 000 organisations were invited to participate in the Top Workplaces USA survey. Winners of the Top Workplaces USA list are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey issued by Energage.
Results are calculated by comparing the survey’s research-based statements, including 15 culture drivers proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.
In addition to being recognised as a 2022 National Top Workplace in USA, Brewer Science has been recognised by the St. Louis Dispatch as a Top Workplace in the region nine times, including the last seven consecutive years. The company was first recognised with the regional Top Workplace award in 2012, and since then has won the Top Workplace Award 9 times (2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021). The sustained accolades of this award come as no surprise to the hundreds of employees who work at Brewer Science, as they were the ones who nominated their company. The company also received two culture awards, Employee Value Prop and Work Life Flexibility, in 2021.
“Companies need to authentically represent their brand to job-seekers,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “The employee experience needs to be on the mission-critical list. Leaders who embrace a people-first culture will benefit greatly. By giving employees a voice and showcasing your authentic culture through employer branding, organisations can attract those job seekers who complement their culture. Culture drives performance.”
Providing customised solutions to customers’ unique complex situations requires high regard for a sense of purpose and commitment by everyone within the company. This dedication has been instilled through the company values and creates a workplace flourishing with culture. The employees at Brewer Science are attentive to their roles in the company and the value they articulate to the customers, suppliers, and industry. This has been exemplified by the company becoming Certified Employee-Owned in 2020. Additionally, the company was recognised for meeting the highest corporate social and environmental standards, transparency, and accountability to all its stakeholders by becoming a Certified B Corporation in 2021.
“Employees are at the core of what makes Brewer Science unique and competitive in our industry. They carry the company values while providing innovative solutions to our customers,” states Dan Brewer, chief resources officer of Brewer Science. “To see the company being recognised as a national Top Workplace in the USA speaks volumes to the dedication, commitment, and culture the employees bring to the company.”
