We have our values to thank as we are named a Top Workplace in the USA as well as a Denver Post Top Workplace in 2022. Encore Electric was named a Top Workplace in the USA, making us one of the top 50 employers in the country in the 500-999 employees’ category. Encore Electric was also named no. 12 on The Denver Post Top Workplaces list in the large company category. In addition to being named a Top Workplace, Encore Electric earned Culture Excellence Awards for Great Leadership, Compensation & Benefits, Innovation, and Purpose & Values. 

The Denver Post and Top Workplaces USA partner with Energage, an employee research and data collection company, to gather information directly from workplaces via employee surveys on what companies do well based on employee feedback. This method of data collection is notable, giving a true reflection of the employee experience at a given company.

“Encore’s employees are two times more engaged than the average company,” said Encore Electric Chief Information Officer Jeff Cann. “I think one reason is that our company culture is extraordinary. We live our company values every day, in every interaction with our customers and with one another. This allows us to grow together as a team, flourish as individuals, and to delight our customers.”
