The Tampa Bay Times published its “Top 100 Workplaces of 2015” today. Avesta Communities was named one of the best places to work in Tampa Bay, ranking 33rd in the Small Business category (50 to 149 employees).
Shevin McCullough, Director of Culture Development, notes, “We are a purpose-driven company led by purpose-driven people. We are extremely thankful to encompass teammates who embrace change and have a burning desire to serve. Our culture is a competitive advantage due to the deep sense of appreciation and understanding we spotlight to every role in our company; for every role has nobility. Additionally, we are grateful for our residents because they give us the opportunity to provide them with dignified service.”
What is unique about this list is that the employees were ultimately responsible for their company’s recognition. The rankings were determined solely on employee feedback. Workplace Dynamics, a neutral party, created and facilitated an employee survey designed to measure engagement, organizational health, and overall employee satisfaction.
Bert de Alejo, Senior Director, adds“At Avesta, the foundation of our organization is our team. Our growth is fostered by the sheer will of our teammates and their ability to provide the highest level of service in all the different areas of our business. Expanding our team of driven and compassionate professionals, focused on building on an energetic and innovative culture, ensure our success in the future. To our Team: Thank you for your hard work. Thank you for your continued dedication. Thank you for your passion & all that you do to create more community in the world.”
Avesta boasts being one of the top property management companies in the Bay area with only one other industry peer making the list.
