EPIC Systems recently ranked 16th among St. Louis area small businesses. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and Workplace Dynamics joined together to find the top places to work in St. Louis. Businesses were chosen by the results of a survey given to employees at each company.
John Schott, President of EPIC, was honored to be listed among the top workplaces in St. Louis. “This is one of our proudest achievements. We place an emphasis on the culture of our company, and this validates the work we do to be the best place to work. We strive to be the best in business and to get better every year.” The St. Louis Post Dispatch survey evaluates whether the company is likely to succeed in the long term and how employees feel about their day-to-day job. According to the results, EPIC’s employees have a positive outlook on the company’s future and their everyday workplace experience.
“EPIC is great place to work and a company that is going in the right direction. I am proud to be an employee of EPIC, and I am grateful to have a job where I am doing something meaningful for manufacturing & America,” said Maria Holt, EPIC Employee.
EPIC also ranked above average in comparison to six other engineering companies in the execution category. Schott was proud to learn that EPIC is above average in execution. His goal is to reduce the bureaucracy and empower every employee to make decisions and move projects forward. Schott believes this is the way to “Do It Better” when running a business.
Schott’s philosophy on how to “Do It Better” in the work place seems to be effective. The comments below exemplify why EPIC was placed among St. Louis’ top workplaces.
