For the fifth consecutive year, Discover received a Top Workplaces honor by Columbus CEO Magazine. The 2017 list identifies companies in the Columbus area with exemplary work environments, as rated by their employees. "Discover's dedication to our employees matches our commitment to our customers. We believe our employees and the customer service we provide are one of our greatest strengths," said Keith Carroll, Discover's vice president of operations in New Albany. "We will continue to cultivate an engaging environment that encourages employees to have both successful business results and balance their lives outside of work." The Top Workplaces list is based on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Discover employees emphasized the company's appreciation of their work and its focus on a healthy work-life balance. "The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits," says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace." Discover employees can take advantage of benefits such as tuition reimbursement, maternity and paternity leave, and many professional development opportunities. They also begin their career with 20 to 25 paid time off days that are prorated depending on their start date. The New Albany Customer Care Center features a number of amenities for employees onsite, including a fitness center, health clinic, walking path, masseuse and cafe.
