NorthStar Moving Named 2017 “Best Places to Work” Winner for Eighth Consecutive Year

California’s premier eco-luxury moving company awarded for workplace excellence by the Los Angeles Business Journal

Los Angeles, CA, Aug. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NorthStar Moving®, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, today announced that it was named one of the “Best Places to Work” in greater Los Angeles for the eighth consecutive year. This annual program was created by the Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group. 

The survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Los Angeles, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce and businesses. After businesses from across Los Angeles County are surveyed, the list is narrowed down to 100 companies. NorthStar Moving ranked an impressive #38 in the best medium sized company category.

Companies from across the county entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Los Angeles, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.

“This achievement just keeps getting better and better each year,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder and CEO Ram Katalan. “As I have said in years past, creating a place where people love to come to work everyday is our greatest accomplishment. Knowing our own team members continue to rate their employee experience so well gives me a lot of pride. We know that happy team members create a happy and satisfying client experience.”

NorthStar Moving continually seeks fun new ways to motivate its employees. From flexible work schedules and work at home options, gym and showers in the office, allowing dogs to come to work, Friday company lunches, bowling and pizza parties, backyard BBQs, to a company sponsored soccer team that competes in a local community league, there is no shortage of fun and team building. NorthStar Moving team members also love the fact that they can feel great about the quality of work they do for their clients and the community. The company pays their team members to volunteer in the community and just completed a very successful fifth annual summer food drive in partnership with Coldwell Banker. NorthStar Moving team members value the difference that NorthStar Moving is making in the community from its green practices to strong involvement in many charitable events throughout the year.

The rankings are published in the August 21, 2017 issue of the Los Angeles Business Journal. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles program, visit
