Having such an engaged team that cares so much about our customers and each other is what really makes CubeSmart special.”

This year’s honorees were selected by a panel of 11 judges.

“Amid economic turbulence and a rapidly changing work landscape, it has never been more vital to prioritize employee engagement. However, building a workplace that effectively engages and supports all employees is no easy feat,” Cates said. “We’re proud to announce this year’s 50 Most Engaged Workplaces and recognize an impressive group of companies who are truly redefining employee-engagement excellence.”

8/10/21 – CubeSmart, a self-storage real estate investment trust and management company, has been recognized as one of the “50 Most Engaged Workplaces in North America” in 2021 by Achievers, which offers a cloud-based employee-engagement program. The annual campaign recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their teams, according to a press release.

Applicants were evaluated by a 15-judge panel comprised of employee-engagement academics, industry analysts, thought leaders, journalists and influencers. Winners were selected based on Achievers’ “Eight Elements of Employee Engagement,” including accountability and performance; belonging, equity and inclusion; culture alignment; manager empowerment; professional and personal growth; purpose and leadership; recognition and rewards; and wellbeing. They’ll be honored during a virtual gala on Oct. 21.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our team’s engagement for the second time. It is a credit to each and every one of our teammates for making CubeSmart a great place to work,” said CubeSmart CEO and President Christopher P. Marr. “Teammates tell us that our culture is special. We invest in them, and they invest in us. Together, we are able to make a difference for our customers, create a sense of belonging amongst our team, and grow personally and professionally. Having a truly engaged team carried us through a challenging year, and we’ve become stronger because of what we faced together.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic presented a myriad of challenges for businesses and their workforce, but these unprecedented times also offered an opportunity for organizations to support their people. Companies that prioritized employee experience, recognition and employee voice have seen increased productivity, higher employee engagement and stronger loyalty,” said Jeff Cates, CEO and president at Achievers. “This year’s 50 Most Engaged winners embody what it means to be a ‘people-first’ business, and have proven how the prioritization of employee experience can help an organization withstand even the most difficult of times.”
