01/26/2017

WENATCHEE, WA (January 26, 2017) – Express Locations, a premium retailer for T-Mobile USA, is pleased to announce that they have earned the High-Performing Circle of Excellence Award from the National Business Research Institute (NBRI) for the third year in a row. The award was based on their continued commitment to employee engagement.

To qualify for this honor, the organization must score at or above Stretch Performance at the 75th benchmarking percentile when measured against their industry, or the organization must improve 5 or more benchmarking percentiles in total company score over the previous research study. NBRI conducts Customer, Employee, and Market Research for businesses, and ‘reads the minds’ of these human factors that so significantly impact all organizations.

“Our culture is centered around employee engagement and implementing the feedback we receive,” said Director of Personnel Karrie Schilperoort. “Employee engagement methods, as well as our efforts to implement feedback that we have received, are always top of mind. We don’t do that for the recognition or awards, but it is an honor to be recognized for that continued commitment from the National Business Research Award.”

Express Locations’ commitment to recruiting and retaining the best retail team talent has paid dividends for the company since its founding in 2006. From 2012 – 2015, the company experienced 87 percent revenue growth and now employs more than 1,400 people companywide.
