Arrow Exterminators, Parent Company of Stark Exterminators, Named 2020 #1 Top Workplace by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators, parent company of Stark Exterminators, has been awarded a 2020 Top Workplace honor by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for the third year in a row. Not only was Arrow named a Top Workplace, but Arrow was named as the #1 Top Workplace in Atlanta! The Top Workplaces Award is based solely on team member feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The survey measures several aspects of a workplace culture including, alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award of being named the #1 Top Workplace in Metro Atlanta,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Arrow Exterminators. “At Arrow, our culture is more than just generous benefits and time off policies – it is about encouraging innovation, celebrating life’s big moments, volunteering with fellow team members to support local charities, recognizing people for a job well done, and providing exceptional training programs to support professional development and career advancement. Our entrepreneurial culture and our team members have been and will always be the driving force of our company and our success, and it is an absolute honor to be recognized by them for being a great place to work.”
“Arrow Exterminators has a unique family-focused, entrepreneurial culture that is based on integrity and operating with transparency and a clear conscience,” said Shay Runion, Chief Human Resources Officer of Arrow Exterminators. “We attribute our success to passionate, highly trained team members who are committed to protecting everyone’s quality of life. As our vision states, we want to hire, train and retain Rock Stars and we know that the Top Workplaces distinction will help propel our recruiting efforts and further strengthen our presence in the Atlanta metro area.”
Kendrick continued, “My grandparents founded Arrow Exterminators with a belief that if you treat your team members with respect and as an extension of your family this would in turn be reflected on the customer. This philosophy has carried on for the past 56 years and it has served us very well. My family and I could not be more proud of the leadership and passion that our team members possess, and we thank you for making this company great!”
As Arrow grows and continues to exceed industry expectations, they are always looking for new talent to bring onboard. “Our 2,500 plus team members are what make Arrow special and we want them to pursue their passions,” continued Runion. “In order to achieve this, we believe in professional development and internal promotions to provide ample amount of opportunities for our Rock Stars to grow and learn.”
