Orlando, Florida August 28, 2023 - Stellar MLS has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by The Orlando Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

"We are Stellar proud to receive the Top Workplace award for the second consecutive year. This recognition highlights our unwavering commitment to fostering a workplace where our team members thrive and contribute their best. At Stellar, we believe that a supportive and empowering environment is the cornerstone of our success," said Stellar MLS CEO Merri Jo Cowen.

Recently, Stellar completed the WillHouse Global Transformative Inclusive Leader program for their management team. This program equips participants at any level of their organization with actionable Diversity, Equality, and Inclusivity (DEI) tools to use in their workplaces.

“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 allow employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
