Fontana, Calif.- The City of Fontana has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by the Press-Enterprise. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage,LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. The evaluation of the workplace culture included Alignment, Execution and Connection. 

"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 Energage. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards of 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." 

"The City of Fontana is the only city in the Inland Empire to receive the distinction of being a 2017 Top Workplace," says Fontana Mayor Acquanetta Warren. "We want to celebrate our employees and take this time to thank them for the contributions they are making to their community in and outside of the workplace environment. The City of Fontana is truly a special place to work."
