BC&A Receives “Utah’s Top Workplaces” Recognition from the Salt Lake Tribune

November 19, 2019

We are so excited to announce that Bowen Collins & Associates has been recognized by the Salt Lake Tribune as one of Utah’s Top Workplaces (small businesses) in 2019. What’s most rewarding about this recognition is that this honor is decided by employees. Doug Claffey, founder of Energage (research partner with the Salt Lake Tribune) says, “top workplaces puts the employee at the center of things, and focuses on creating the right environment to unleash potential and inspire performance.” The survey which ultimately decides which businesses will be deemed one of Utah’s top workplaces asks employees to comment on issues such as company culture, connection, engagement, and leadership. At BC&A, employees are family, and the emphasis we place on creating a healthy and encouraging workplace environment is shown by receiving this great recognition.
