The Gunter Group recently participated in the second annual Gallup Employee Engagement Survey. The results were very positive, which puts TGG in the 92nd percentile among small organizations that completed the survey.  TGG ranked in the 99th percentile for overall satisfaction, reflecting the fact that our employees feel their input is valued and that we are committed to building a great team.  After reviewing the summary results, Founding Partner, Mike Gunter said, “Our philosophy is that our team members come first.  We could not be more proud of or happier about these results.”

In the 1990s Gallup did extensive research to identify obstacles that affect company growth and success. This led to their groundbreaking Employee Engagement Survey,which includes twelve workplace elements that impact organizational development.  Gallup characterizes engaged employees as those that are “involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work.”  Survey results consistently show that that a highly engaged workforce leads to improved employee retention, productivity and revenue.

According to Gallup’s June Monthly Report, only 31% of U.S. employees are truly engaged at work. These low numbers mean that employees are failing to develop and fully contribute at work. Maintaining an environment where employees feel engaged, rewarded and empowered is a priority for The Gunter Group. As The Gunter Group matures, we’re focused on maintaining a collaborative and rewarding environment where employees have a sense of autonomy and confidence in their work while feeling connected and supported within our team.  This results in greater customer satisfaction and reinforces our commitment to building strong client relationships.

The Gunter Group is proud to receive such high results a 2nd year in a row on our overall employee engagement. This achievement along with  being selected as one of the 2016 ‘100 Best Companies to work for in Oregon’, clearly differentiates The Gunter Group as an exemplary up and coming firm that strives to create  an exceptional culture of talented employees who are committed to building success within our firm, our team and our clients.
