Guardian Storage, which operates 22 self-storage facilities in Colorado and Pennsylvania, was named among the “2018 Top Workplaces” by “The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.” The list is based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a provider of technology-based employee-engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection, according to a press release.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Energage CEO Doug Claffey. “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.”
“When I started this company over 30 years ago, it was important to me to build a team that felt like family and that tradition continues today,” said Steven Cohen, president and founder of Guardian Storage. “I’m honored to be surrounded by such a dedicated, professional team that truly loves coming to work every day. This award speaks volumes about the culture at Guardian Storage, and I’m humbled to be a part of a successful company driven by such an amazing group of individuals.”
Established in Pittsburgh in 1987, Guardian Storage operates 17 facilities in Pennsylvania and five in Colorado. It recently opened a new location in the Forest Hills suburb of Pittsburgh, and will open a new facility in Bethel Park, Pa., next year.
