"It's very rewarding to be named one of Arizona's top companies to work for," said Rio Salado College President Chris Bustamante. "Rio Salado is well-known for innovations in education, but it's the people who define this institution. Our employees are creative, enthusiastic and embrace a culture of continuous improvement.”
Companies were evaluated and selected based on a combination of overall satisfaction scores from an employee engagement survey and evaluation from an employer questionnaire covering topics related to human resource programs, benefits and workplace culture.
Winners were announced at a “Top Companies” breakfast reception June 20 and the full list and related stories appeared in a special supplement inserted in the June 23 edition of The Arizona Republic, and online at TopCompaniesAZ.azcentral.com.
