Dorsey Alston, Realtors has been named one of the Top Workplaces by the Southeast’s premier newspaper and web site, the AJC & AJC.com.
This is an employee-driven recognition, which draws nominations from more than 4,000 businesses around the country and had more than 1,000,000 people complete the confidential Workplace Dynamics employee survey.
Dorsey Alston has been honored as a Top Workplace in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 in the category of midsize company which is defined by having between 150 and 499 employees. In 2016, the firm was not only honored but also placed No. 1 in the midsize category, and, in 2017, the firm placed No. 2.
For six consecutive years, Dorsey Alston team members have gone online, completed an anonymous survey that management never sees, and written about the work environment at Dorsey Alston in such a positive way that the firm has continuously risen to the top of a crowded field of excellent companies. With a team of more than 250 professionals, that is no small feat.
The AJC shared the following responses from surveys submitted this year to a question related to the employees’ favorite things about the firm:
“I am able to work at my own pace with support at all times.”
“I have the freedom, flexibility and support to create and manage my business as I see fit.”
“This company appreciates me!”
According to the AJC, the “(Top Workplace designation) isn’t about free lunches, or trips to Las Vegas. It’s really about whether employees feel inspired, and are given the room to do great things.”
Creating that inspired, supportive space is Dorsey Alston’s primary goal every day, and if the AJCs recognition is any indication, then the firm is on the right track.
