It is our constant goal to provide the best work environment, opportunities for career advancement, great compensation and benefits, and opportunities to give back to the environment and community to all of our employees. This year we are proud to announce that we are among the winners of the annual Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards Best Places to Work in 2021 list.
Unlike many other awards, there is no self-nomination or application process, instead it’s entirely based on the feedback our employees have voluntarily and anonymously shared on Glassdoor. With hundreds of reviews being evaluated over the past year, we are proud to be recognized as the 20th best place to work among U.S. companies with more than 1,000 employees. In today’s post, we’d like to give you a glimpse into the work environment at Blue Raven Solar through the use of actual employee experiences.
A Conspiracy… A Group of Ravens
At Blue Raven Solar, we pride ourselves on company culture. From day one of an employee’s journey at Blue Raven Solar, we emphasize how each individual plays a specific role in helping accomplish the company’s mission statement. In fact, Blue Raven Solar has a dedicated set of values that showcases how employees can fulfill the mission statement through three core values: develop a high trust culture, be efficient, and continuously improve. As each employee learns to work by the values listed above, the company becomes even more tight knit and performs at a higher capacity, which allows thousands of homeowners to benefit from solar energy! After being ranked a top ten growth engine in Utah for four consecutive years, we are determined to keep our employees happy and continue expanding at a rapid rate. In order to accomplish those goals, Blue Raven Solar has created several initiatives to keep our team connected even during the COVID-19 pandemic. In August of 2020, we launched our Blue Raven Conspiracies program. Through weeks of employee surveying, we’ve formed nine distinct conspiracies (a.k.a. a group of ravens) dedicated to helping employees form friendships outside of the office setting. So far, our employees have loved meeting and sharing their interests in book clubs, the outdoors, racquetball courts, restaurants, and so much more. We’ve also started monthly Lunch and Learn events, which allow employees to share a passion or talent over a virtual lunch. All in all, we strive to put our employees first in order to create the best work environment possible!
What are some other perks of working at Blue Raven Solar?
No one will deny that free lunch Fridays and a loaded snack room are great perks, but at Blue Raven Solar we make sure that an “amazing” work environment provides employees with the opportunity to learn, grow, and to wear multiple hats. Most employees dedicate all of their time and efforts to a specific team within the corporation. Each one of these teams is built up of several individuals, who are led by a team manager. Every quarter these individuals are able to set goals that are specific, measurable, actionable, results oriented, and time bound. Managers receive these goals and are then able to help members of their team achieve those goals through weekly and monthly training. Thus, all employees can strive to continuously improve and accomplish the company’s mission statement. Many Blue Raven employees have the opportunity to switch roles across the company, become specialists and leads on their team, or even grow into leadership positions. All in all, the combination of a fantastic company culture, opportunities to grow, and wonderful benefits packages has made Blue Raven Solar one of the top-rated companies to work at in the entire nation! By taking a quick peek at our Glassdoor profile, you can see that 95% of employees would recommend working at BRS, 98% of employees approve of CEO Ben Peterson, and 86% of employees agree that the company is getting better and better! Now that we know why Blue Raven Solar is a great place to work, let’s see what actual employees say about the company!
