On Sunday, June 30th, The Tennessean announced the winners of the Top Workplace Awards. Our employees bestowed upon Bob Parks Realty/PARKS a great honor: they made us the #1 mid-sized company in Middle Tennessee!
What a pleasant surprise – we had over 200 responses to the surveys administered by Workplace Dynamics on behalf of The Tennessean. We know this is a great place to work, but now you all do too!
Why are we #1? Bob would say he strives to instill a sense of balance in all of us, in terms of both work and home life. In our manager’s meetings he wants to know how things are going in each office and that always includes time for what is happening in the communities we serve. From our corporate sponsorship of the Make-A-Wish Foundation to our personal philanthropic efforts, everything is supported from the top down.
We also had the honor of winning the “Work/Life Flexibility” award. I suspect that has a lot to do with the nature of real estate. Being a real estate agent can be a flexible career, but it can also require your attention 24/7. Most days it’s not like on television with the high drama and the phone calls during dinner (think Fredrik, Million Dollar Listing: New York), but it certainly can be.
Thank you to all of the employees, brokers and agents who made us the #1 Top Workplace (mid-sized companies) in Middle Tennessee. From the Gulch office to the Northfield office in Murfreesboro – thank you. We appreciate your service and the differences you are making in the lives of those around you.
