May 24, 2024Smith Douglas Homes Earns 2024 Great Place To Work Certification™

Woodstock, GA — Smith Douglas Homes is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place To Work® for the third year in a row. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Smith Douglas Homes. This year, 95% of employees said it’s a great place To Work – 38 points higher than the average U.S. company.

Great Place To Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.

"Great Place To Work Certification is a highly coveted achievement that requires consistent and intentional dedication to the overall employee experience," says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, the Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place To Work. She emphasizes that Certification is the sole official recognition earned by the real-time feedback of employees regarding their company culture. “By successfully earning this recognition, it is evident that Smith Douglas Homes stands out as one of the top companies to work for, providing a great workplace environment for its employees."

“Being named a Great Place to Work is not just a recognition of our company as a whole, but it reflects our collective efforts and the positive work environment we have fostered together. This achievement wouldn't have been possible without the hard work, passion, and belief in our shared mission and purpose” said Katie Peacocke, Vice President of Human Resources at Smith Douglas Homes. “Each team member has contributed significantly to making our workplace an extraordinary one!”

The survey results have provided valuable insights and have shown that associates have a strong desire for training and development opportunities. As a result, this year we rolled out two initiatives, The Emerging Leaders Development Program and LinkedIn Learning. These initiatives will support leadership development among managers and allow associates to stay ahead in their professional growth by learning new skills at their own pace.  

According to Great Place To Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
