This seventh-annual survey and awards program, created by Business Alabama and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employers in Alabama. The list is made up of 16 companies.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process, evaluating and reviewing aspects of company culture, such as opportunities for growth and advancement, community involvement and engagement, and employee appreciation, among others. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined survey results determined the top companies and the final rankings.
Edward Welch, Jr., and John Hornsby along with the late Ed Welch, Sr., founded the investment advisory firm with the belief that a client’s interest should never be compromised. Nearly three decades later, this company-wide covenant holds true still, and along with the dedication to the client, Welch Hornsby holds commitment to employees in the highest regard. In referring to that standard that earned Welch Hornsby the top rank, President & CEO, Edward Welch, Jr., says, “We have truly dedicated people who embody our mission of uncompromising commitment to build and preserve the wealth of our clients, to enrich their lives, the lives of our employees, and the world in which we live.”
Welch continues, “We believe it is imperative to create an environment that fosters personal and professional growth. Our new wellness program is a good example, and we have had a lot of fun with competitive group challenges. We also spend a lot of time together through corporate lunches and gatherings, which seems to nurture an environment of community and collaboration and ultimately supports our mission.”
While Welch Hornsby is proud to have been recognized is this manner, it is not a representation of clients’ satisfaction with Welch Hornsby or its services.
