Third Year in a Row – The Post-Dispatch Names Carboline Company a Winner of the Greater St. Louis 2017 Top Workplaces Award




St. Louis, MO. 06.23.17 – Carboline Company has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Post-Dispatch. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.


“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”


This is the third year in a row that Carboline has been ranked in the Top Workplaces. The award was made possible by actual employee feedback, which is the most rewarding part of the award.


“Being named a top workplace three years in a row is such an honor and a testament that our focus on our most valuable asset; our employees, is really paying off. We could not be a successful company without the dedication of each and every Carboline team member,” says David Morlen, VP of Human Resources of Carboline Company.


The St. Louis Post Dispatch published the complete list of Top Workplaces in June 2017. For more information about the Top Workplaces published by the St. Louis Post Dispatch, please visit
