In two posts on No Jitter, AVI-SPL looks at workplace transformation and agility, and how the two relate to a better experience in the workplace. “Gaining Consensus for Workplace Transformation” explains how to start the process of improving collaboration in your workplace to attain the outcomes you want, including a consistent, easy user experience, reliable technology, and spontaneous collaboration using in-room and personal devices.

What Being an Agile company Means and Why It Matters” defines agility, why it’s important to business, and the capabilities of workplace technology that helps companies respond quickly to consumer and market challenges.

Glassdoor Names AVI-SPL’s John Zettel a Top CEO

AVI-SPL employees are to thank today as our own John Zettel has been named a Top CEO by Glassdoor, according to the company’s most recent report. Glassdoor®, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, released its annual report highlighting the Top CEOs in several countries throughout North America and Europe.

Zettel appears on the U.S. Large list with an impressive Glassdoor rating, due in part to efforts toward maintaining a family-like employee culture, increase in community activism, and creating avenues for employee questions, suggestions, and comments to be heard, and considered.

In a recent interview with Commercial Integrator, Zettel shared the importance of employees and culture, crediting the people who make up AVI-SPL for the company’s success:

“It does cycle back to our people, because they have to be the ones committed to innovation. And then that innovation is what goes to our ability to just work that extra mile to deliver on customer expectations and exceed customer expectations. I do think when you combine that innovation with the culture and commitment to our customer, that is what sets AVI-SPL apart.”

CEO approval ratings are gathered through Glassdoor’s online company review survey, which gathers current and former employee sentiment about job and company satisfaction, the work environment and the culture. Employees are asked to rate a number of workplace factors like compensation and benefits as well as work-life balance, and asked whether they approve, disapprove or are neutral about the job their CEO is doing. In addition, employees are asked to describe some of the upsides and downsides of working for the company and provide any advice for senior management.
