For the fifth year in a row, Central Tech has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by The Oklahoman. The Oklahoman recognized 90 companies in Oklahoma for 2019. Central Tech placed third in the mid-size category.

The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, LLC.

In order to be named as a Top Workplaces, organizations must meet strict standards for organizational health. Energage research has proven these three things are most important to employees. Employees need a strong belief in where the organization is headed. They want to know how it’s going to get there. Finally, they need to feel that everyone is in it together. This sense of connection and organization is a must for Top Workplaces winners.
