Össur named a Top Workplace of 2020 by The Orange County Register
Össur Americas has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by The Orange County Register.
Össur was ranked 28th amongst midsize employers in Orange County.
The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”
"Receiving this recognition as an OC Top Workplace for a third time is especially gratifying, given an unprecedented and difficult year that has challenged the best of us," says Össur Executive VP of Bracing & Supports and Americas, Christian Robinson.
"Our priority has always been the safety of our employees, little did we know it would be put to the test. We rose to the challenge to not only keep each other safe, but also to continue to service our customers and end-users that rely on our products and services so they can live a life without limitations. Coping with the pandemic hasn’t been without sacrifice but through it all, we have remained true to who we are – courageous, honest, and generous with our support of each other. We are proud to be honored again by our employees."
