Yet another score for Nashville on the “coolness” barometer: Quantum Workplace has placed Music City No. 7 on its annual “Top 10 Best Cities to Work” list.
According to the survey, the top 10 cities in which to work in 2013 are as follows: Charlotte, N.C.; Denver; Sacramento, Calif.; San Antonio; Washington, D.C.; Austin, Texas; Nashville; Baltimore; Boston; and Miami-Dade.
The report also included the bottom five “engaged” cities, the most improved cities and the most declined cities. Since 2009, Denver and Charlotte (which many consider a peer city with which Nashville competes) were the only cities to show consistent and significant increases in engagement.
Omaha, Neb.-based Quantum Workplace uses science-based tools to measure and manage employee engagement, loyalty and retention. The company issues a yearly report that shows year-over-year aggregate trends, industry trends and analysis on the components having the greatest impact on engagement, employees’ preferences for recognition, and the effect of engagement on retention, profits, and sales.
Nearly 400,000 employees took the most recent survey.
