twp_austin_2016_aw

Austin, Texas – Nov. 14, 2016 – uShip has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by the Austin American-Statesman. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“This is a great team win for uShip,” said Matt Chasen, founder and CEO at uShip. “It’s a real reflection of a cross-company leadership and effort focused on some key growth initiatives around commercial shipping and freight automation, as well as refining many of the key processes within our core consumer business.”
