How many people can say their companies provide them with free lunch every day, visits from food trucks on the company dime, fun outings to places like Disneyland to celebrate team achievements, and even company dress-up days to keep the team spirit alive?
Our employees at Scorpion can.
We’re no ordinary workplace. That’s why we recently became Great Place to Work Certified™, based on a survey of 217 of our employees and other GPW-based factors about the company’s overall culture. Great Places to Work® has been recognizing high-performing workplace cultures throughout the world for more than 30 years.
“Our employees are the heart and soul behind what we do here at Scorpion,” said Sheena Works, Director of Training and Organization at Scorpion. “That’s why we work so hard to keep them feeling inspired, motivated, and appreciated. We believe in creating an environment where they look forward to coming to work every day, and where they have the chance to grow both professionally and personally.”
Employee Survey: What It’s Like to Be a Scorpion
Great Places to Work® surveyed our Scorpions, and the numbers spoke for themselves, with employee ratings of over 90% across all categories. The overwhelming majority of our employees rated Scorpion as “often or almost always” providing great challenges, atmospheres, rewards, pride, communication, and bosses. Nearly all surveyed employees said Scorpion is a place where people can celebrate special events, where coworkers care about each other, where others go the extra mile to get the job done, and more.
Here are a few other unique perks that Scorpion offers its employees and local communities:
- 100% company-paid health coverage for all employees
- 25% company health coverage for dependents
- 10 days of paid time off per year, with additional paid holidays
- Ongoing charitable giving and volunteer opportunities ($97,000 in philanthropic donations in 2016 alone)
- Employee of the Month recognition with bonuses
- Other opportunities for bonuses and rewards
See our Great Place to Work® profile for a more detailed glimpse of the Scorpion life.
At the time of the survey, Scorpion had 414 employees, with office locations in Valencia, California and Dallas, Texas. Since that time, we have moved our Dallas location to Addison, bringing the office closer to home for many of our Texas employees.
We will be at the Great Places to Work For All conference in Chicago in May to talk about our company culture and how we have used it to create happy employees.
