American Landmark Apartments, one of the fastest-growing multifamily owner-operators in the country, has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. Hitting newsstands May 12 in the May/June 2020 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.
American Landmark specializes in the opportunistic acquisition and aggressive management of value-add multifamily assets located throughout the Southeast United States. The firm’s portfolio consists of over 30,000 apartments in desirable metros areas in Georgia, Florida, Texas, Tennessee, North and South Carolina. American Landmark ranks No. 31 among the Top 50 Largest Apartment Owners in 2020, according to the National Multifamily Housing Council’s annual list.
“What makes American Landmark a great place to work is our focus on our people,” said CEO Joe Lubeck. “We’ve intentionally fostered a culture that promotes personal and professional growth, and cultivates each individual’s unique talents and strengths. We’re committed to providing opportunities for growth, advancement and diversity to our team members, and that gives everyone a great deal of pride in working here.”
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 389 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then we ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
