Woodmont Properties has earned recognition as a top employer in New Jersey as part of an employee engagement survey conducted by a statewide media outlet.
The Fairfield-based developer announced Wednesday that it received a “Top Workplaces 2020” honor from NJ.com, which the website conducted with Energage LLC. The selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey, which measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures such as alignment, execution and connection.
“It’s a true honor to be recognized among some of the top companies in New Jersey,” Woodmont CEO Eric Witmondt said. “As we have grown and expanded our offerings over the years, one thing has remained constant — our people first approach and commitment to fostering a dynamic team of professionals who are all working toward a common goal.”
In a news release, Woodmont said it has cultivated a culture in which every team member receives recognition for his or her individual contributions to every success, milestone or new opportunity. The company has grown from 35 team members in 2005 to more than 200 today.
“Our team members are truly connected and enthusiastic about our culture and it is because of this connection that we have been named Top Places to Work in New Jersey,” said Cindy Gonzalez, the firm’s director of human resources. “They provide extraordinary service to our communities through that same connectivity and engagement with us as their employer.”
Woodmont noted that it often hosts events designed to bring various teams together, such as the recently held Adopt a Park initiative in Morristown, which drew more than 80 of its team members. The firm also hosts an annual “Bowlapalooza,” summer picnic and holiday dance party.
“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
