SECURA recognized as a Great Place to Work for fourth consecutive year
It’s difficult to pinpoint what makes a great workplace. Things like modern facilities and flexible schedules are important, but a truly genuine office culture can only be measured by the voices of people who work there.
For the fourth consecutive year, SECURA is Great Place to Work certified.
SECURA submitted information on program and benefit offerings, hiring practices, diversity and inclusion initiatives, community involvement, and more to Great Place to Work to be considered for the certification. Great Place to Work also looks at what associates have to say about working at SECURA. Associates participated in an anonymous survey to share their thoughts about topics like leadership, fairness, rewards and career opportunities.
While the intangible part of our culture is what makes our offices unique, associates have access to things like a fitness center, café, summer hours, and onsite health and wellness professionals. Associates also have an array of benefits, which include profit sharing and 401(k) contribution.
As we continue to grow and evolve as a company, we look to make our culture and community even stronger.
