Talroo is thrilled to once again be named one of Austin American-Statesman’s Top Workplaces of the year! Each year, they compile a list of the top 100 Austin-based companies to work for based on an employer survey powered by Energage. The anonymous survey measures organizational aspects such as values, company direction, employee appreciation, team concerns, and more. This is Talroo’s fourth time earning a spot in the Top Small Employers category (companies with under 150 employees).
This year has been an especially rough one when it comes to maintaining a strong company culture. With much of the workforce, including the entire Talroo team, having to go virtual practically overnight as COVID-19 hit our community in the middle of March, it hasn’t always been easy to keep work top of mind. However, we did our best to hold our workers’ hands through the transition and made it as smooth as it could have been. A COVID care package filled with snacks, masks, and games; a generous Amazon gift card for renovating employees’ work-from-home office space; and multiple virtual team events were just some of the ways that Talroo showed employees that we care and are always there, even from a screen away.
At Talroo, the traditional benefits are pretty off the charts, too. We offer competitive salaries, 100% company-paid healthcare premiums and a user-friendly health savings account, 401(k) retirement plans with 3% employer contribution, unlimited PTO (as well as paid company holidays), generous maternity and paternity leave, and free gym memberships. We’ve understandably had to pause some of our in-person benefits, like a great office space and daily catered lunches, but we’ve maintained and grown our company culture via virtual happy hours, raffles, new employee lunches, game nights, and more!
“It’s an honor to once again be included on the Austin American-Statesman Top Workplaces list,” says Thad Price, CEO of Talroo. “We are incredibly grateful for our employees for this award and for working so hard in an especially turbulent year. At Talroo, we pride ourselves on providing quality results to our clients and cultivating a positive company culture. Neither could be possible without our outstanding team members.”
Beyond the award itself, another great thing about being named a Top Workplace is that Energage provides recognized companies with their anonymous survey results, allowing us to continue our commitment to always improving as an employer. We truly care about our employees’ satisfaction and safety, and hope to embody that in all that we do for them.
