Ohio Basement Systems Recognized as one of Cleveland’s “Top Workplaces”

Ohio Basement Systems, a Groundworks company, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2020 honor by The Plain Dealer. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party employee engagement survey. In order to make the list, Ohio Basement Systems exemplified many of the drivers of an engaged culture, which are critical to the success of any organization: including direction and vision, training and development, innovation, and notable compensation programs, 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.”

“For more than 20 years we have been focused on creating a work environment where our employees feel valued and empowered. Receiving this award- an award based solely on our team’s feedback- is a testament to those efforts,” stated Jeremy Tenney, Ohio Basement Systems’ General Manager. “Within the last year, we were fortunate to have joined the Groundworks family of companies, which has allowed our employees to advance their careers like never before. Our employees are absolutely our most important asset and we are so proud of the men and women of Ohio Basement Systems.”

Ohio Basement Systems continues to build an engaged culture by investing in its employees outside of the office. This includes numerous team community service projects to help give back to the local communities, all-expense-paid trips to Virginia Beach, VA, for additional training and recognition at the company’s national convention, and initiatives to provide meals for its employees’ families during the COVID-19 Crisis. These are just a few of the things that have helped the company earn “Top Workplace” honors.

Ohio Basement Systems has grown over the last year to not only serve Northeast Ohio but also other portions of northern and western Ohio. In partnership with their sister brand, Ohio Basement Authority, they can bring top-level service to homeowners across the entire state of Ohio.
