CubeSmart, a publicly traded self-storage real estate investment trust and management company, has been named among the “2019 50 Most Engaged Workplaces” in North America by Achievers, an employee-engagement platform provider. The annual award, now in its ninth year, recognizes employers who display leadership and innovation in engaging their staff. The winners will be honored at an awards gala on Sept. 9, at the Harold Washington Library Center, in conjunction with the Achievers Customer Experience Conference.
“We believe that our teammates are the heart of CubeSmart, and the experiences they have working here matter to us,” said Christopher P. Marr, CEO and president of CubeSmart. “That’s why this recognition means so much to us. It confirms that the culture we work so hard to build and protect is truly special.”
A panel of 10 judges comprised of employee-engagement academics, industry analysts, thought leaders, journalists and influencers evaluated this year’s applicants. Winners were selected based on Achievers’ eight elements of employee engagement: leadership, communication, culture, rewards and recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values, and corporate social responsibility.
“The companies we honor have proven their forward-thinking directly leads to a more positive employee experience,” said Jeff Cates, CEO and president of Achievers. “Through the development of a people-first culture, the organizations epitomize an innovative, engaged and accomplished workforce.”
CubeSmart owns or manages 1,165 self-storage facilities across the United States. Its operating portfolio comprises 78.8 million square feet.
The Achievers Employee Success Platform provides tools for organizations of all sizes to help them reach higher levels of employee engagement. It’s a subsidiary of Blackhawk Network Holdings Inc., a provider of branded value solutions for businesses.
