Salt Lake Tribune Names Stratus HR a 2023 Winner of Utah Top Workplaces

For the fourth year in a row, Stratus HR was recognized as a Utah Top Workplace for 2023.



Sandy, Utah – October 30, 2023  Stratus HR is thrilled to announce they have been recognized as a Salt Lake Tribune Top Workplace for 2023. This esteemed award is based solely on employee feedback and reflects their ongoing commitment to cultivating an exceptional workplace culture.

"We are truly honored to be named a Top Workplace for the fourth year in a row,” said John Farnsworth, co-owner and CEO of Stratus HR. “This is a testament to our talented and dedicated team who make Stratus a truly special place to work.”

The selection process for winners was determined by a wide range of factors that encompassed workplace policies, benefits, leadership, and overall work environment. Employees had to submit anonymous feedback through a third-party survey, by which answers were compared with like-sized companies in their regions. Companies with the highest overall scores were recognized as Top Workplaces.

“We have several employees who originally worked for one of our partner companies that got a small taste of our culture,” commented Farnsworth. “They wanted to get their foot in the door and experience Stratus firsthand, so they applied for any opening. It’s amazing how loudly culture speaks, even when you think nobody is paying attention.”

The Top Workplace designation is a result of the exceptional workplace practices, employee engagement initiatives, and a commitment to fostering a positive work environment that prioritizes employee well-being. Stratus HR continually invests in employee development and a vibrant company culture, which has contributed to this prestigious recognition.

"I’m extremely proud of the supportive and collaborative environment we've built here at Stratus HR,” added Farnsworth. “Our employees are the heart of our success, and we are committed to providing them with a workplace that encourages growth, innovation, and work-life balance. This is really special."

Stratus HR, along with other Utah Top Workplaces recipients, was honored at an award celebration at the Downtown Hyatt Regency on Wednesday, October 25, 2023.
