“We are excited to be named one of Denver’s top workplaces as it’s a testament to the quality of our team and the level of commitment and dedication each team member brings each day,” said Gary Alford, Resident Vice President and Denver Branch Manager. “The level of teamwork and collaboration that exists in Denver is exceptional. Every team member should take pride in their contribution to this achievement.”

“For more than a decade, the Top Workplaces award has helped organizations stand out among their competitors to attract talent,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “This differentiation is more important than ever in today’s tight labor market. Establishing a continuous conversation with employees so you have a deep understanding of your unique culture is proven to help achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. No longer is recognition simply a much-deserved cause for celebration, but it’s fast becoming mission-critical to establish a competitive advantage for recruitment and retention.”
