Greystar Arizona Voted Top Place To Work

Greystar, The Global Leader in Rental Housing™, has been recognized by azcentral as one of Arizona’s top places to work in 2020. 

The results are determined by an employee engagement survey, not outside observances from azcentral or another third party. All employers – public, private, nonprofit and governmental – are eligible to participate, if they have at least 50 employees in Arizona. To accurately compare results, employers are grouped into large, midsize and small company categories. Greystar’s Arizona team will learn its placement in the large company category in a future publication date.

The employee survey contains 78 statements which are on a five point like scale, ranging from "Agree Strongly" to "Disagree Strongly". The statements are broken up into the below eight categories.

  • Leadership and Planning
  • Corporate Culture and Communications
  • Role Satisfaction
  • Work Environment
  • Relationship with Supervisor
  • Training, Development and Resources
  • Pay and Benefits
  • Overall Engagement

Nicole Wray, Arizona’s Managing Director with Greystar, said she believes the positive response from their region’s employees are attributed to the company’s people-first approach.

“As our founder, Bob Faith, says often it has never been about being the biggest, it is about being the absolute best at all levels. Period. People are our #1 asset. Culture is everything and we work every day to enrich the lives of our team members, residents and community.

We very proud of our low corporate turnover, only one Regional Property Manager out of a total of 12 has left in a total of three years.”

Nicole shares three top tips to a successful organization:

  • Team member mantra is “Got your back!” not “Watch your back!”
  • If you lead with integrity, operational excellence will come.
  • Take the right path, not the easy path.

In 2015, Greystar made huge investments in leadership development and talent acquisition platforms which has been the catalyst for positive change. Leaders at both the community and corporate level can choose to participate in the two-year leadership program aimed at improving interpersonal communication skills, recruiting for mindset, career development and conflict resolution. Nicole attributes this program as a core building block of where they are today.

This service-driven philosophy is part of Greystar’s Pillars of Excellence and Core Values, which are the foundation of how the largest multi-family property manager in the United States operates. These Pillars of Excellence include customer satisfaction, operational excellence, profitability, growth and community, while the Core Values are integrity, respect, professionalism, accountability, service and teamwork.
