The Detroit Free Press Names RouteOne a Winner of the Michigan 2017 Top Workplaces Award

Monday, November 6, 2017

RouteOne has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Detroit Free Press; this is the third straight year RouteOne has achieved this honor. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an anonymous 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.”

“We are proud and honored to be recognized as Detroit Free Press Top 100 Workplace for the 3rd year in a row,” stated Justin Oesterle, RouteOne’s Chief Executive Officer. “This award represents the collective achievements of each individual RouteOne team member and their commitment to creating a corporate culture built on our core values of integrity, teamwork, service, organizational excellence, financial stewardship, and respect. It’s these core values that enable us to deliver the technology that thousands of dealers and finance sources use every day to sell and finance vehicles across North America.”
