KINGSPORT/BRISTOL RANKS #10 BEST CITIES TO WORK

Kingsport/Bristol  ranks as the tenth best city/area to work in America, says the recent Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.  According to a recent story printed in the USA Today, www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/04/05/cities-content-miserable-workers/7251775/

Gallup surveyed employees in 189 American metropolitan areas during 2012 and 2013.  The Work Environment Index was made up of four metrics:  job satisfaction; whether employees felt that their strengths were used at work; treatment of employees by their supervisors; and the existence of an open and trusting work environment between supervisors and employees.

“Employees in the Kingsport metro area had among the best supervisors in the nation last year,” said the writers of the USA Today story.  “Nearly 65% of survey-respondents felt their supervisors treated them like a partner, and 84.6% felt their supervisors created a trusting work environment, more than all but a handful of other areas reviewed.”
