This marks the 6th time New Orleans-based MSB has received this prestigious Top Workplace honor.
Metairie, Louisiana, June 23, 2022 – M S Benbow & Associates (MSB) was awarded a Top Workplaces honor for 2022 today by The Times-Picayune and New Orleans Advocate. This is the 6th time the company has earned this prestigious recognition.
MSB is particularly proud of the fact that the Top Workplaces honor is based solely on employee feedback, gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC.
According to Energage, 975 New Orleans-area companies were invited to participate in the Top Workplaces survey. Together these companies employ over 30,500 people in New Orleans. The response rate to the survey was over 50%, and just 71 companies were honored as winners this year.
“Frankly, we couldn’t be more proud to be named a ‘top workplace’ by the very people who are in the best position to know — our own employees and team members,” said MSB President and CEO, Leo Holzenthal, Jr. “Building a strong company culture has been a priority of ours since our founding,” Mr. Holzenthal continued, “and the importance of a strong culture has never been more evident than in the turbulent times we’ve all gone through over the last few years.”
After a year of unprecedented growth, MSB decided to move its corporate headquarters to Two Lakeway Center in Metairie, LA, at the foot of the Causeway on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. At the same time, the company fully embraced the hybrid work model that was initially driven by the requirements and restrictions of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Describing the move, Mr. Holzenthal said that they “created a hybrid work environment from the ground up, which allowed us to thoughtfully incorporate the amenities and types of private and collaborative spaces our staff wants and needs to serve our clients. We believe it exemplifies today’s best thinking about office design and technology to support productivity and employee satisfaction.”
MSB continues to grow and is actively recruiting talent for a number of different positions. “We’re so excited for the future and are actively seeking out exceptional candidates to join our team,” said Mr. Holzenthal. “Receiving this award for the 6th time only reinforces our commitment to excellence in our work and to our employees.”
