About the Top Workplaces 2011 Survey Outreach

I am confident about my future at this company

Workplace Dynamics reaches out to employers with at least 50 employees in the Bay Area to participate. We use a combination of print and online ads, and direct outreach to employers using direct marketing lists (e.g. InfoUSA). We have invited 1,370 companies to participate and have surveyed 109 of them. The surveyed companies employ 34,375 people in the Bay Area. 27,314 Bay Area employees have received surveys, and 16,249 have responded.

I am happy with my career opportunities at this company

Employee survey We survey employees at participating employers using either paper surveys or an online survey application. Employees respond to a set of statements using a seven point Likert scale. Each of the statements has been tested to ensure it has a high correlation with how employees feel about their workplace, which is calculated by correlating the statement responses to a control question which asks each employee to rate their workplace on a scale of zero to 99.

Response requirements We require a response rate of at least 35 percent for employees based in the Bay Area. In addition, employers with 85 or fewer Bay Area employees must have at least 30 responders. We encourage employers to survey all employees, but large employers can choose to randomly sample their Bay Area employees. At least 500 employees must be included in the random sample for employers 2,500 or less. For those employers over 2,500 but less than 5,000 employees, we require 20 percent minimum distributed. For employers 5,000 or more the minimum is 1,000 surveys distributed.



Testing for questionable results


Survey statements

After the survey is complete, we first run a series of statistical tests to look for any questionable results. We disqualify a small number of employers based on these tests. As the effectiveness of these tests depends on employers not being aware of them, we do not publish the details.

Selection of Top Workplaces We categorize the employers into size bands because smaller employers tend to score higher than midsize employers, and midsize employers tend to score higher than large employers. We then rank the employers within their size band based solely on the employee responses to the survey statements. The top employers in each size band are then selected as the Top Workplaces in the Bay Area for 2011.

67% 67% I feel genuinely appreciated at this company 67% I believe this company is going in the right direction 65% Senior managers understand what is really happening at this company 63% I have confidence in the leader of this company 63% My job makes me feel like I am part of something meaningful 63% This company operates by strong values and ethics 61% At this company, we do things efficiently and well 61% New ideas are encouraged at this company 58% I feel well-informed about important decisions at this company 55% I have confidence in my manager 54% My manager helps me learn and grow 54% My manager makes it easier to do my job well 53% My manager listens to me 52% There is not a lot of frustration at my workplace 51% I get the formal training I want for my career 49% My pay is fair for the work I do 45% I have the flexibility I need to balance my work and personal life 41% My benefits package is good compared to others in this industry 35%

Bay Area’s brightest employer stars are honored with special awards n addition to the ranking of the companies in the Top Workplaces 2011 Survey, 27,314 employees were invited to complete a survey on a variety of topics pertaining to their specific company. The surveyed companies employ 34,375 people in the Bay Area. Of those individuals asked to complete these surveys, 16,249 responded. These responses helped Workplace Dynamics determine these 15 special awards, separate from the general ranking by size and other components.

Service to community is a strong tenet of Top Work Places companies By Linnea Smith Jessup Special Sections Editor uccess is measured in many ways, but the Top Work Places clearly view helping others and being active in their communities among their primary responsibilities. Some have taken their efforts global, others choose to support local renowned service and charitable organizations or have designed philanthropic programs which are closely linked to their business category or service.


Here are some examples of how these workplaces are positively impacting their communities and the world.

SMALL COMPANIES McManis Faulkner, a San Jose law firm, ranked as the second place small business, noted, “We believe in giving back to the community. With the firm’s full support, our attorneys and staff work with many local organizations and participate on the boards and committees of other non-profits, such as the Adopt-A-Family, AIDS Legal Referral Panel of San Francisco, La Raza, Girl Scouts of Northern California, San Jose Museum of Art, Silicon Valley Law Foundation, Child Advocates of San Mateo, Junior League, Asian Law Alliance and Muslim Community Association.”



The firm has sponsored a number of events at the San Jose Rep, where a partner serves as vice president. In conjunction with The Pajama Program’s “Open Your Heart” campaign, McManis Faulkner employees donated time, pajamas and money to this organization’s local chapter (providing new pajamas to foster and other children), which was established by one of the firm’s attorneys.

Among the causes they support are Adopt-A-Family, Adopt-A-Class, Share-A-Gift, Emergency Family Assistance Association, Walk for the Cure, Second Harvest Food Bank, SPCA, Humane Society and local blood drives. The Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program, the community assistance arm of the National Park Service, supports community-led natural resource conservation and outdoor recreation projects. “For example, locally, we have an ongoing community project in Martinez this year. In concert with the California Native Plant Society, New Leaf Academy, City of Martinez, the public and others, we are establishing a native plant trail connecting downtown Martinez with the John Muir National Historic Site,” noted Stephanie Burkhart of NPS, ranked 21st among small business in the Top Work Places survey. They also recently donated computers and supplies to Lincoln Elementary School. “Have You Seen Me?” is a program begun in 1985, and “in the years since the acquisition, the newly integrated company has embraced it with a passion and commitment,” noted Ritu Shrivastav of the Valassis’ human resources office. “The goal of the program is to recover missing children, and the means to that goal are uniquely in our hands — a company that reaches…a hundred million people each week,” she added. Each year, the Valassis Giving Committee works to raise funds for The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). raising over $76,000 in 2010, and has a 2011 goal of $80,000 in associate contributions.

he founding members of the Sereno Group began with the simple yet determined goal of redefining today’s real estate practice. Motivated by the continued dilution of the quality of service being provided to clients by mega-firms, a small group of seasoned, top producing agents realized a growing need for more accountability to and responsibility for the client/transaction process and for the quality of the client’s experience.

They realized that in order to accomplish this goal, they would have to create a company that proudly returned to the Silicon Valley’s rich real estate history; one focused on strong local ownership and leadership, a tighter core group of agents working together, and a movement back to the benefits of deep community-based relationships. The Sereno Group formed around these basic ideas: • Strong local ownership and leadership. • A distinguished, core group of experienced, highly productive sales professionals with a strong moral obligation to the highest ideals. • Deep ties to the local community as lifelong residents and professionals. • Direct accountability to our clients from the Owner and President to the sales professionals to the support staff. • An obligation to create a responsible and thoughtful real estate experience for everyone we serve. • A reputation based upon quality of service and not motivated by bottom line, short-term goals. Each Sereno Group member pledges to be the single positive difference in our clients’ experience. Each Sereno Group member pledges to bring to our clients what they rightly deserve: our very best through teamwork, concentrated effort and a standard of excellence.

Hyatt Thrive volunteers focus their efforts on education and personal advancement for others, health and wellness, environmental sustainability and economic development and investment. Santa Clara Hyatt ranked fifth in the midsize category for Top Work Places. Del Grande Dealer Group, an auto dealership, named seventh among the midsize businesses, sponsors local youth athletics as well as many community and national projects for organizations such as the San Jose Ballet, The American Heart Association and The Susan G.

The company, named the top large company in the 2011 Top Work Places survey, contributed $18.4 million worth of financial and product support worldwide in 2010.

The company’s instruments and medical divisions also donated medical products, beds and mattresses to Physicians for Peace, which has nurses and doctors currently assisting with the rebuild of a Port-au-Prince hospital, she added. Stryker “matched dollar for dollar more than $100,000 in employee contributions to the Red Cross/Crescent and UNICEF,” Larson said. Stryker regularly participates in Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley, a non-profit organization that performs free home accessibility and safety repairs/modifications for older adults and disabled homeowners in Santa Clara County.

One of the paid volunteer days is encouraged to be used for the Global Day of Impact – a period of time that employees are all encouraged to go out and volunteer at local organizations. In the Silicon Valley, people have volunteered at Second Harvest Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity.

In 2010, a selection of winning photos were collected into a calendar that was sold internally, with all proceeds going to the Humane Society. Hitachi’s Charitable Giving Request process encourages employees to propose a gift to a nonprofit organization with the main criterion being that the employee has a tangible and meaningful connection to the charity – as a volunteer, a board member, etc. SAP Labs in Palo Alto recently hosted a “Volapalooza” on campus, where 14 community partners participated in a fair organized to showcase volunteer opportunities. More than 50 percent of Palo Alto-based employees participate in SAP-sponsored service activities throughout the year and have contributed 3,917 volunteer hours, according to the company, which was ranked seventh in the large Top Work Places survey.

Bay Area companies share resources to create positive outcomes, and many such efforts focus on green practices and way to positively affect our planet. Here are a few of the efforts companies are making in this important arena:

Workday is an EPA “100 percent Green Power Purchaser,” and its internal Green Team focuses on earth-friendly solutions in everyday professional and personal activities. Workday ranked tops in the midsize business category.

Sereno Group, a real estate firm and the top-rated small business for Top Work Places 2011, focuses upon green practices for the good of the community and also good business practices. Through this continual effort, Sereno Group’s Los Gatos, Saratoga and Los Altos offices have been Green Certified by the County of Santa Clara, and the Santa Cruz office has been Green Certified by the Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program. Their Environmental Committee meets regularly to discuss and create environmental objectives and Sereno Group supports a complete recycling campaign in each office and has committed to reducing their overall environmental impact as an organization.

Taos, an information technology service, ranked 14th among the midsize companies in Top Work Places, reaches out in unusual ways. The company’s senior technical consultants, also known as “practice leaders,” lead and participate in weekly Practice Leader Office Hours open to not only Taos employees, but to the larger IT community. These discussions cover a wide range of hot technology topics and often include hands-on demonstrations in the lab.

In addition, Sereno offers a paperless transaction coordination platform, complete with electronic signature identification, decreasing paper waste and redundancy; uses eco-friendly products in office build-outs, including recycled flooring and carpet in the Los Altos office; plus environmentally sensitive lighting. iD Tech Camps organizes beach clean-up days and recycling initiatives, encourages carpooling to camp and has a carpooling app available for parents who want to share driving.

Strong companies thrive on open communication with their employees By Linnea Smith Jessup Special Sections Editor


pen communication is, for many companies in the Bay Area and elsewhere, the roadmap to success. When all opinions are encouraged, voices are listened to and observations are shared, the pathway is straighter and the goals are more easily attainable. Recently several of the Top Work Places 2011 companies revealed their strategies and experiences for fostering great communication with their employees. RMR Financial is big on meetings, webinars and email messages to and from the leadership. An annual sales kickoff is held annually in February, which reviews the previous year and showcases the goals for the current year. Sales and management meet semi-annually, regional loan officers meet with their branch monthly and sales training on new products, prices and guidelines is scheduled as necessary. Webinars allow employees to discuss a variety of topics, while the president produces a quarterly update for all staff. Headquartered in Los Gatos, RMR has 151 employees and ranked 3rd in the midsize business category.



An annual employee health faire is just one way that Round Hill Country Club engages with employees at its location in Alamo. They also do regular department meetings and weekly email updates, publish a monthly publication for staff and membership and maintain Facebook and Twitter sites. An employee portal website is another resource for communication. Round Hill employs 161 employees and ranked 6th in the midsize category.


A meeting for RMR Financial employees.

e-mail and small group meetings are used when needed. NOVA ranked 9th in the small business classification.

Face-to-face communication works well for Pet Food Express. “Every store in our chain is visited every weekend by a corporate manager, including the owners and the COO. They do store inspections…but their primary function is to reach out and touch our employees and customers so that we do not become isolated from the ‘ground truth’.” Additionally, store managers, assistant managers, lead associates, group mentors and district managers attend a half-day meeting once a month with senior management, buyers and various corporate department heads. One meeting is held each week so that the groups won’t be too large. They also publish a monthly newsletter and regularly send out e-mails to explain what is going on. Pet Food Express employs 459 and was ranked 8th in the midsize category.

Senior management at Loring Ward, San Jose, holds quarterly update meetings for all employees where financial results and other issues or iniatives are reviewed. An annual employee meeting — as well as many smaller events — are scheduled throughout the year. “We also believe that employee feedback is critical and conduct an annual employee survey,” the company noted. “Because we are a small company, we are also very open to feedback and can implement changes quickly. Our CEO loves to solicit employee feedback, often asking employees, whether in the mailroom or in senior levels — ‘What can we be doing better? If you had a magic wand, what would you change?’ We have an Open Door policy and there is daily interaction with executive management plus departmental luncheons that include the CEO and CFO.” Loring Ward is an investment management company of 61 employees. It ranked 10th among small businesses in the Top Work Places.

With 263 employees, the City of Brentwood stresses communication both up and down the organization. To bolster their communication, they utilized an outside consultant who led sessions within departments as well throughout the organization. An organizational development steering committee has been created with employees at all levels of the organization and spanning across all departments. The city publishes a monthly employee newsletter and holds periodic employee roundtables where the city manager provides updates on important issues. A weekly update from the city manager is posted online and provides current information from various departments regarding projects and activities. The City of Brentwood ranked 9th among midsize businesses.

A 130-employee enterprise firm in Mountain View, Clearwell has become “famous” for their biweekly all-hands meetings, which are a tangible symbol of its open, transparent culture, reported the company. In these meetings, team members discuss company priorities, share departmental initiatives and celebrate sales and customer care wins. The firm took the 11th spot in the small business workplace survey.

NOVA, a nonprofit based in Sunnyvale with 81 employees, hosts an annual all-staff offsite both to further develop the sense of community and build morale. The organization also holds monthly all-staff meetings to share updates and information on projects and events. NOVA’s director writes a regular internal blog to provide in-depth information on administrative issues. The director also noted that staff from various units host wiki pages to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the organization’s current projects and trends by staff. Individual units meet on a regular basis and

The National Food Laboratory’s employees enjoy an open-door policy with senior management. The company noted that the president shares detailed company financials with the entire company at quarterly meetings. Kevin Buck, president, said, “… knowledge is power, and we want our staff to be armed to make the best decisions for the company. We hire the best people in their fields and empower them to do their best work.” He also writes a weekly column for the corporate newsletter, discussing work issues and sales, “but also talks about life in general. It is widely read and quoted in our company.” Ranked 30th in the small business category, the Livermore-based business employs 114.

Company rewards motivate and validate employees

S U N D A Y, J U N E 1 9 , 2 0 1 1


By Linnea Smith Jessup Special Sections Editor From employee-nominated awards to trips, monetary bonuses and training, Sybase, Inc., an SAP company, aims to foster employees’ participation and career opportunity. Here, too, employees can nominate their peers or employees “for aboveand-beyond efforts.” The number 10 large workplace also rewards revenue-producing employees at Sybase who have produced outstanding sales results in the year with participation in the President’s Club, where they are able to spend several days away from work with their families, often in an exotic setting.


rom a handshake to a bonus to vacation or other positive recognition, Bay Area employees at the 65 companies determined to be the Top Work Places 2011 are being validated for the often demanding jobs they do, as gleaned from responses from these employees. Take a look at some of the creative and innovative ways companies acknowledge their employees’ efforts. Success Factors, ranked 17th among midsize businesses, said employee to employee validation is just one way workers are rewarded. All employees are able to show their appreciation and thanks to another employee by sending them a recognition badge, selecting from among several positive terms from “amazing” to “team work” and adding a personal note which can be viewed by all employees (over 300).

The City of Brentwood, ranked 9th midsize employer in the Top Work Places survey, holds an employee appreciation barbecue annually, planned, prepared and paid for by the department directors. Awards are given to employees that have been nominated by their peers for exemplifying the City’s Core Values, and teams of employees that have worked inter-departmentally to achieve common goals are recognized. Employees also give an “email pat on the back” to each other when someone has made an over-the-top effort and these folks are highlighted in a city newsletter.

Similarly, Real Time Innovations employees can give any other a “Hero Reward” bonus, filling in a certificate with the reason for the reward. The recipient gets a gift card and recognition at quarterly company meetings. Teams can also present awards, which come with a monetary bonus. One employee per quarter is given an “Excellent Award” which includes a week’s vacation and a monetary bonus. As well, the entire company (60 people) is part of an annual profit-sharing plan. The small company ranked 16th in the Top Work Places survey.

Not all rewards are monetary or tangible. Some companies explained their everyday ways that staff are rewarded.

Nonprofit Easter Seals of the Bay Area gives annual recognition to a team member from each of its programs during an all-employee meeting. Notes Leslie Bennett, human resources vice president, “Our employees have many unique talents, and their work impacts the lives of children and families every day. It is not a chore to identify recognition-worthy behavior.” Acknowledgement at weekly meetings by supervisors is often accompanied by commendation letters and gift cards. The organization earned the number 32 spot among small businesses in the Top Work Places. Fremont Bank rewards employees who demonstrate extraordinary efforts by “delivering an above and beyond

approach” to getting the job done. The categories include: leadership, team spirit, innovation, customer service, quality assurance, efficiency, security and community service. Employees are honored at a luncheon with top executives and receive certificates acknowledging their achievement. Fremont Bank, with 639 employees, took the 4th spot in the ranking of large Top Work Places.

At Integrated Archive, staff members can partake of a “delicious homemade healthy and organic lunch every day shared around a beautiful farm table. On special occasions, celebrations and milestones, we celebrate with something special like fresh fruit salad or a favorite lunch,” noted Erin Strain, director of business and partner development. “Sometimes we might close the office an hour early to enjoy the sunshine or an early start to the weekend. Sometimes we organize team-building offsite adventures or treat the team to local professional sporting events, concerts or enrichment opportunities,” she added. The company ranked 15th among small businesses in the survey.


Motivation? At A10 Networks, named to the number 6 spot among small businesses, “all employees are A10 shareholders with a common goal to increase value and opportunities to earn more shares through dedication and accomplishment.”


“Our employees repeatedly cite the satisfaction of watching children develop and grow as the single most motivating factor in working for our firm. They tell us it’s a fun place to work,” commented the owner of College Nannies and Tutors, Dave Culp. The small business ranked number 3 in its Top Work Places segment. In addition, staff can work “virtually any hours they wish and change their schedules as often as they like.”
