Why It's a Great Employer

Pictures of employees' families are randomly displayed on the intranet of Jackson, Mississippi-based real estate investment firm Parkway Properties, a sign of their respect-based approach. The company gives out half-day-off certificates for a job well done, and they have recognition events for sub-groups of employees like "Building Engineer's Day". Everyone either gets stock options or stock shares. Between 2004 and 2008, Parkway says its turnover rate was more than 11% lower than the industry average of 29%.
