Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for the sixth consecutive year during an awards banquet Wednesday, Feb. 26.

The criteria is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC. Carroll EMC employees participated in the anonymous survey, which uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution and connection, to name a few.

“It is an honor to be recognized as one of Atlanta’s Top Workplaces for 2020,” said Tim Martin, president and CEO for Carroll EMC. “Our family-oriented work culture is a place where employees are encouraged to succeed. We want our employees to enjoy their work.”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is in its 10th year of administering the Top Workplaces contest that invites more than 2,900 companies in metropolitan Atlanta to participate.

“Establishing a continuous conversation with employees so you have a deep understanding of your unique culture is proven to help achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover and double the employee engagement levels,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “No longer is recognition simply a much-deserved cause for celebration, but it’s fast becoming mission-critical to establish a competitive advantage for recruitment and retention.”

Carroll EMC is a Member-owned cooperative providing electricity to approximately 50,000 homes and businesses. The co-op serves Members in Carroll, Haralson, Heard, Paulding, Polk, Floyd and Troup counties.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer. For more information, visit the cooperative’s website at carrollemc.com or follow Carroll EMC on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram and LinkedIn. Carroll EMC: Community Built. Community Builder.
