The company was the only defense contractor to appear in the rankings, which are based on employee feedback.
“Our employees are our strongest asset. We are delighted to have earned this honor from them for the second year running,” said Pete Trainer, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Air Force Solutions business area.
The annual rankings, created with the consulting and employee research firm, Energage, are tabulated using anonymous feedback collected from surveyed employees. Nominations for the Top Workplaces program are open to Utah employers of all sizes and industries. Employees of nominated businesses must complete a survey ranking their respective employers across 24 unique categories, evaluating pay, benefits, flexibility, and training. The survey also reviews employee engagement, assesses employee opinions on corporate leadership and values, and appraises the significance of each company’s work.
The BAE Systems employees who participated in the survey primarily work at Hill Air Force Base in Northern Utah, as members of the company’s Air Force Solutions business. They are part of a contract team working to assist the U.S. Air Force in maintaining the readiness of its intercontinental ballistic missile defenses.
“Our team supports a significant part of our national security strategy,” said Rick Allen, director of Air Force Solutions Strategic Systems at BAE Systems. “Our people go to work every day knowing they are playing an important role in keeping our country safe, and improving the readiness of the U.S. Air Force.”
