The American College of Financial Services Named a Top Workplaces 2022 Winner by The Philadelphia Inquirer

For two years running The College recognized as a standout company to their employees, talent, and the professionals it serves

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA – August 21, 2022 – For the second year in a row, The American College of Financial Services has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by Philadelphia Inquirer Top Workplaces for their efforts to create a people-centered culture. Based solely on the feedback provided through an employee survey, The College has been named a Top Workplace in Philadelphia for midsized companies.

“Our people are what make us great, and we strive to ensure The American College of Financial Services provides a positive work environment and supportive culture for our workforce of exceptionally talented individuals,” said George Nichols III, President and CEO of The College. “We are honored to be recognized as a Top Workplace for a second year because this shows that our employees feel heard, challenged by a high-performance culture, valued and are connecting with our vision.” 

Under the leadership of President Nichols, The College’s commitment to building a collaborative and inclusive work culture remains a priority. With faculty and staff across the country, keeping the workforce connected and engaged is integral to its continued success as a growing and dynamic company. The College can affect this kind of culture change through the advocacy and ideas of The College’s culture committee, leadership training, frequent employee surveys, virtual and in-person events, and a clear mission and vision to rally around.

The Top Workplaces 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, to name a few. The College also received specific badges for certain culture drivers ranked in the top 25% of organizations in our mid-sized company benchmark surveyed in the last 12 months, including:

  • Clued-in Employees – Employees feel well-informed about the important decisions at The College
  • Trusted Leader – Employees have confidence in the leader of The College
  • Company Direction – Employees believe The College is going in the right direction

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
