1836 Property Management received quite the honor recently when the Austin Business Journal named the premier property management company as one of the Best Places to Work.
In the ABJ’s MICRO category, which includes companies that have between 10 and 24 employees, 1836 Property Management was ranked in the #24 slot. That’s very impressive, considering there are more than 23,000 businesses in the Austin metro region, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
The publication solicits nominations of companies for its annual Best Places to Work list. Once they are secured, Quantum Workplace surveys employees anonymously about their companies to get their true feelings about who they work for.
All employees grade their companies based on six criteria — communication and resources, individual needs, manager effectiveness, personal engagement, team dynamics, and trust in senior leaders.
By being named among the Best Places to Work, 1836 Property Management demonstrated high ranks in all of these areas. Like all other companies on the list, 1836 Property Management fosters a workplace where employees are willing to go above and beyond, while advocating for the company and intending to stay there well into the future.
According to the survey, 90% of the employees at 1836 Property Management were classified as “highly engaged.” By ABJ’s definition, this means a vast majority of the team has a highly favorable attitude toward the company, is an advocate for the company, intends to stay there long-term and exhibits a high discretionary effort.
All employee responses to the survey are converted into a score and averaged. The possible outcomes range from 0-100. 1836 Property Management garnered an extremely impressive score of 95.34, which is why it was named among Austin’s Best Places to Work.
The part of the ABJ survey that truly resonated with leadership at 1836 Property Management is the open-ended responses team members provided. When asked to pick the one word that describes their work environment, employees overwhelmingly identified “family” as that word.
This is reflective of how 1836 Property Management feels about its employees and also of all its clients. The family atmosphere that’s created within the company exudes outside of the company as well.
