Prime Named to 2020 Best Places to Work in New Mexico
Albuquerque honored as an employer of choice for excellent morale, engagement and retention.
Prime Therapeutics was named a 2020 Best Places to Work in New Mexico finalist by Albuquerque Business First. The award program recognizes companies that have created positive work environments and promote New Mexico and its area employers. Prime is among the top five high-scoring companies in the extra-large businesses’ category.
“It’s gratifying to have earned such recognition together as a team,” said Dan White, director, operations for Prime. “We know that high job satisfaction keeps people at Prime and motivates them to produce higher quality work. This year, on the backdrop of all the challenges in the world outside our walls, we looked inward to create a space that was unique and special for each of us. Each effort was organically built and driven by employees from every level of the company. This truly is a team win that we can be ‘PrimePROUD’ of.”
Engaged and healthy employees, combined with a positive workplace culture, are the secret sauce for business success. A Gallup survey showed engaged employees make it a point to show up to work and do more work. Highly engaged teams have a 17% increase in productivity and a 41% reduction in absenteeism. And, engaged workers are more likely to stay with their employers. Engaged employees show up every day with presence, purpose and passion.
Albuquerque employees propelled Prime to the honor by responding to an anonymous workplace satisfaction survey which measures worker fulfillment in the areas of workplace culture and employee benefits and recognition. In each of four categories, the companies with the highest scores were named finalists, and those with the highest scores in each category will be revealed as top winners at an event in August.
The entire list of finalists was published online and will be featured in an August print edition of Albuquerque Business First. Albuquerque Business First is in the 15th year of its annual Best Places to Work awards.
