We are so proud to announce that Guardian Storage has once again been named a Top Workplace by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette! In 2020, 136 companies in the Greater Pittsburgh area applied. We are thrilled to be one of the 92 companies who were chosen as winners of a 2020 Top Workplace Award. This award is a direct reflection of the dedicated teammates who bring a positive attitude to work every day. These employees are truly what makes Guardian Storage a great place to work!
At Guardian Storage, we strive to provide a work environment in which our employees can feel proud and fulfilled. To us, that means taking care of people – our employees, our customers, our communities, and our business associates. We know that every team member contributes to creating a positive workplace. This is why our team is made up of individuals who share our core values of caring, excellence, commitment, innovation, and teamwork. To show our dedication to our employees, we provide comprehensive training and opportunities for growth within the company.
Most of our employees are dedicated to their Guardian Storage property, and not centrally located. Because of this, we work hard to maintain strong relationships across the company. To establish strong relationships throughout our company, we hold annual team building events, holiday celebrations, as well as quarterly team meetings.
In addition to our events, we keep our employees engaged with each other and our communities by giving back in a variety of ways. Collectively, our company helps support over 50 nonprofit organizations. This includes partnerships with The Education Partnership and the Kids in Need Foundation, non-profit organizations that provide critical school supplies to teachers and students in low-income areas. Our employees are also able to choose non-profits that align with their own interests. From there, they can support local organizations in a variety of ways.
There are currently 26 Guardian Storage properties in Pittsburgh and the Denver area with two more locations on the way in 2021. We are always looking for dedicated employees to add to our ever-growing team. If you are interested in a career with Guardian Storage, check out our careers page for available positions.
How are Top Workplaces Determined?
The employees at each company receive a survey where they judge their workplace based on a set of criteria. Energage, a third-party company, sends surveys to each employee, where they collect responses centered around workplace culture. The survey collects employee feedback regarding company alignment, coaching, connection, engagement, leadership, performance, and the basics (pay, benefits, flexibility, training, & expectations).
