Commercial Appeal names Cornerstone Systems a winner of the Memphis Metro Area Top Workplaces Award

MEMPHIS, TENN., December 20, 2021 – For the second consecutive year, Memphis-based third-party logistics provider, Cornerstone Systems, Inc. has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by the Commercial Appeal. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC.

The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”

Cornerstone employees cited flexibility, respect and honesty as top culture descriptors. Employees also have a higher satisfaction rate than employees from other logistics companies that participated in the survey, with a 66% employee satisfaction rate compared to the 64% industry benchmark score. As a 100% employee-owned company, Cornerstone offers an employee stock ownership plan on top of competitive benefits, a defined employer contribution retirement plan, paid leave, flexible work schedule and more.

“We are honored and humbled to once again be recognized by the Commercial Appeal as a Top Workplace,” said Tim Clay, President/CEO of Cornerstone Systems. “Our employees provided honest feedback that we will be able to utilize as we continue to focus on the founding principle of Cornerstone, our Purpose Statement – To Provide a Better Place for People to Work.”
