The Orange County Register Names  The Word & Brown Companies a Winner of the Orange County Top Work Places 2020 Award                                                                                                                               

The Word & Brown Companies have been awarded a Top Work Places 2020 honor by The Orange County Register. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“We are excited to again earn this award from The Orange County Register as one of the region’s top work places,” said John Word, co-founder of The Word & Brown Companies. “Orange County has been our headquarters since we began more than 35 years ago, and it’s a great place to recruit employees who embrace our longstanding philosophy of Service of Unequalled Excellence.”

“We thank everyone on our team for sharing their honest and open feedback that led to this recognition,” said Edward J. “Rusty” Brown, Jr., Word & Brown co-founder. “It’s great to be among such an elite group of Orange County employers. We appreciate all of our employees’ contributions to our organizational success, and we are humbled to be selected for this honor.”

“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Work Places program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
