The annual rankings, determined in partnership with the employee research and consulting firm Energage, are calculated using feedback collected by anonymously surveyed employees. The competition is open to Utah employers of all sizes, across any industry. BAE Systems was the only defense technology company to appear on the list.
“This is an outstanding honor that can only be earned after being critiqued by the toughest, and most meaningful, critics – our own employees,” said Pete Trainer, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Air Force Solutions business. “Our people are our most valued asset.”
Anyone can nominate a company for the Top Workplaces program. Employees within each nominated business must complete a survey ranking their respective employers across 24 unique categories that evaluate pay, benefits, flexibility, and training. The survey also studies employee engagement, assesses employee affinity for their corporate leadership and values, and appraises the significance of each company’s work.
The BAE Systems employees who participated in the study primarily work at Hill Air Force Base in Northern Utah. They are part of an 800 person contract team working to assist the U.S. Air Force in maintaining the readiness of its intercontinental ballistic missile defenses.
“Our people play an integral and meaningful role in ensuring our nation’s security,” said Rick Allen, director of Air Force Solutions Strategic Systems at BAE Systems. “Our team of engineers, program managers, logisticians, and cybersecurity experts go to work each day knowing they are preserving and modernizing the critical infrastructure required for a safe, secure, and effective land based strategic deterrent.”
BAE Systems also received a special award among all Top Workplace nominees for encouraging balance between work and life for its employees – a key discriminator the company promotes in its workforce recruiting efforts. More than 120 organizations participated in this year’s survey, with 85 Utah area employers scoring well enough to earn recognition on the Top Workplaces list.
