Centric Charlotte has received a spot on the Charlotte Business Journal’s Best Places to Work List for a third year.
The two organizations annually evaluate local companies to determine the area’s best in workplace culture and environment. This program measures a wide range of research-validated workplace factors that impact employee engagement and satisfaction.
Charlotte Practice Lead and Vice President TJ Felice said, “We are honored and excited to be named a 2021 Best Workplace in Charlotte. I would like to recognize our entire Charlotte team for their contributions to creating a truly special culture. Without their relentless efforts, our mission to provide an unmatched consulting experience to our clients and employees would be impossible.”
The award recognizes a Best Place to Work fosters a workplace where employees willingly go above and beyond in their work, advocate for the organization and intend to stay with the company in the future.
“Every standard company comes up with some iteration of “values” that their employees should abide by. What sets Centric apart is the company was created on these “values.” We stand together daily to create an unmatched environment for each other and our clients. It’s about being a part of something bigger than yourself. It’s about valuing people over money. It’s a movement. And I’m a better version of myself for belonging to it. I’ll never leave,” said Josh Phillips, a consultant on our Charlotte team.
Although we’re a national company, we have a local business model with many of our employees working remotely or at client sites in and around the Charlotte area. For this award, companies are categorized and chosen based on the number of employees in the local Charlotte office.
Our Charlotte team qualifies under the small company category (10-24 employees). CBJ named us a Best Place to Work among 25 other small companies in the area.
The honor serves as a testament to our culture. Centric intentionally upholds its culture, which we reflect in our core values, including Embracing Integrity and Openness, Committing to Delivery Excellence, and Living a Balanced Life. Another one of our core values that we take very seriously is to “Ignite Passion for the Greater Good.” We do this by contributing donations and taking part in community service activities.
Lucy O’Keefe, Manager on the Charlotte team, said, “I fell in love with Centric’s culture during the interview process, but little did I know at that time just how much Centric cares about and supports its employees. Centric truly has our backs!”
The CBJ will recognize our achievement as a Best Place to Work by including all qualifying companies in the Best Places to Work Special Report published in the November 19th, 2021, issue of the Charlotte Business Journal. All category rankings will be revealed in the special report.
