colorado top workplace 2018 award



Denver, CO April 20th, 2018 – JackRabbit has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Denver Post. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

“JackRabbit is an energetic, fast paced environment that thrives on innovative thinking, bringing new ideas to market and surprising our customer with the unexpected,” says Kirsten Bowen, SVP General Merchandise Manager of JackRabbit. Bowen goes on to say that those new ideas can come from anywhere in the organization, “We trust each other, we build trust with our partners, and operate with transparency. We stay humble, we listen more than we speak, and know that good ideas come from all different places.”

Employees at JackRabbit work hard, and policies are in place that ensure full-time professionals have the freedom they need to maintain a healthy work-life balance. “Our team here works very collaboratively towards our goals, but we always take the time to celebrate our wins. Our progressive work-from-home and vacation policy definitely help keep the team feeling motivated and fresh!” states Patrick Jacobs, Director of Digital Operations for JackRabbit.

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
