This week, it was announced that Rubicon was certified as a Great Place to Work® for the second year in a row by the global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures, with over ten million employees in fifty countries taking the Trust Index© Employee Survey every year.

As Rubicon’s Chief Administrative & People Officer, I get the honor of working with all of our employees across our five offices on our company mission to end waste, and ensure that our culture and recruiting programs perpetuate our core values.

We earned our most recent credential based on extensive ratings and feedback from our employees in anonymous surveys conducted by Great Place to Work®, which provide the benchmarks, framework, and expertise needed to create, sustain, and recognize outstanding workplace cultures.

Here at Rubicon we are a mission-driven company, but we know that in order to complete our mission, we need to attract the best people. We are one of just 2,700 Certified B Corporations worldwide, and we have been since 2012. Part of this is due to us providing the best workplace and benefits possible for our employees, including (but not limited to) paid health and dental premiums for full time employees and their dependents, a generous 401(k) program, 65 percent reimbursement for mass transit, and paid maternity and paternity leave. Our employees are leveraging these great benefits—and more—to help our customers, haulers, and partners in our mission to end waste.

Today is National Employee Appreciation Day here in the United States and Canada – and we truly appreciate the company that our employees help us build every day. If you want to challenge the status quo and make a difference in the world with a Certified B Corporation and two-time Great Place To Work® that is reshaping how the worldwide waste and recycling industry functions, come and join us at Rubicon.
