St. Louis, Missouri, June 27, 2022 — NewGround has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by St. Louis Post-Dispatch Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection.
As leaders in the architecture, design, and branding industry, NewGround has always understood the importance and value of focusing on company culture first. As the backbone of the company, a core set of values drives employee and client interactions. NewGround’s core values include serving others, connection, and collaboration, innovation, striving for excellence, and valuing communication. They guide the company’s daily interactions both internally and externally.
“This differentiation is more important than ever in today’s market and is cause for celebration,” says Kevin Blair, President and CEO of NewGround. “The NewGround core values drive our relationship with each other and our focus on clients each day. It’s mission-critical for our recruitment and retention efforts that we stay laser-focused on building our culture, listening to our employees, and guiding their future here. A healthy culture impacts our ability to properly serve clients for the future.”
Over the past two years, NewGround has been recognized for making swift changes to policies and procedures to help employees during the pandemic, including new hybrid work schedules, remote work offerings, and other employee-focused strategies to maintain a culture of listening and collaboration.
