For the seventh time, uShip has been named a Top Workplace by the Austin American Statesman, making the list as a Greater Austin Top Small Employer (under 149 employees).
In addition to making the Top Workplaces 2020 list, uShip made the list six previous years: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2018, and 2019.
Criteria for making the list this year were based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous, third-party survey that measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization.
So, why DO people love working at uShip? Here are just a few of the many reasons our employees say they are proud to call themselves uShippers:
uShip has a very productive, result-oriented culture. While financial performance IS important and there’s a stringent focus on the numbers, staying focused on individual or collective results is a critical part of what makes us tick.
Results don’t just appear out of thin air. They start with each person taking ownership of what’s in front of them. And that approach raises all boats to the point that it’s a systemic part of the culture.
Naturally, self-management may invoke images of chaos. But it couldn’t be further from the truth. Typical reporting structures exist, but it’s not an environment of micro-management. And this means hiring people who are self-motivated and experienced in their roles.
A bunch of self-managed people who are held personally accountable doesn’t live to its full potential until it’s put into a collaborative environment. That’s one of uShip’s calling cards and this is especially true – and critical – as the team is working from home during the pandemic.
One thing all uShippers have in common is a desire to get better and push further. uShip management annually provides a Personal Development budget and growth opportunities to help employees expand their skills and know-how.
When you combine these company attributes with all the benefits offered at uShip (see the list below), it’s definitely a top workplace. It offers big-company benefits in a small-ish sized company because we really value and are committed to our people. There are even some extras that will surprise you.
