IMC Announces: Decisionwise Employment Engagement Awards, 2017

DecisionWise Recognizes International Market Centers as 2017 Employee Engagement Best Practice Award Winner

DecisionWise, a US-based employee engagement consulting firm, recognizes International Market Centers (IMC) as a top-performing organization with its annual employee engagement best practices award.

Springville, Utah—DecisionWise is proud to recognize IMC as a top-performing organization through its 2017 Employee Engagement Best Practice Awards. IMC is one of five organizations that received the award based on a review of over 8.3 million survey responses in the DecisionWise international employee engagement survey benchmark database.

The five winners in the Small to Medium Enterprise category are as follows, in alphabetical order:

Affinity FCU
CCI Mechanical, Inc.
GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation
International Market Centers (IMC)
Oregon Community Credit Union

Results were analyzed by measuring the number of fully engaged, key contributor, opportunity group, and disengaged employees in each organization using a set of employee engagement anchor questions. Those organizations with the most fully engaged and key contributor employees were eligible to receive the award. Final winners were confirmed by evaluating the overall culture of the organization as well as best practices and IMC initiatives that contributed to the scores.

Robert Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers had this to say about this recognition: “When IMC was formed through the acquisition and merger of four companies, we knew creating one cohesive culture throughout the company would be critical to our success. We put as much emphasis on defining our culture as we did in developing our corporate growth strategies, and we are thrilled to receive this award that validates all of the effort we devoted to this process.”

DecisionWise recognizes IMC because it exemplifies best practices in employee engagement, both through its annual employee engagement results and through its actions to create an engaged workplace.

“We’re privileged that IMC has made DecisionWise a strategic partner for employee engagement surveys, and we’re proud that it has taken clear, measurable actions to leverage employee feedback and create a positive, engaging, and energizing workplace for its employees,” said DecisionWise Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Tracy Maylett.
