“To be recognized as one of the Best Employers in our home state is such an honor,” said Ben Catt, CEO of Pine Gate Renewables. “The past year has not only required us to be more innovative with how we manage the work in the field and traditionally in the office, but also in retaining the company culture that we have built. Our company fosters an environment that gives our employees the tools to thrive no matter whether we are physically or virtually together. No matter what, our teams are dedicated to getting solar done.”
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
Companies from around the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the “2021 Best Employers in North Carolina.” The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part included an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
Pine Gate Renewables was selected from a pool of hundreds of businesses in the North Carolina area, following a careful assessment of their performance in the industry, employer relation and satisfaction, and customer review. The renewable energy company deservedly came out top after the analysis of the submission and information from various nominees, reiterating the company’s unique approach to creating a sustainable business environment and a cleaner world for all.
