Forbes Names Extra Space Storage One of America’s Best Midsize Employers

For the second consecutive year, Extra Space Storage—a member of the S&P 500—has claimed a spot on Forbes’ America’s Best Midsize Employers list. Not only is Extra Space Storage one of five Utah-based businesses to be recognized, but it’s also the only self storage company to be featured in the Business Services & Supplies category.

“Our Extra Space Storage values are integrity, excellence, innovation, teamwork, and passion, and those are what set our company and our employees apart. Our values are what makes this company so great to work for,” said Joe Margolis, CEO of Extra Space Storage, regarding Forbes’ announcement.

Forbes’ ranking for best midsize employers in the U.S. is comprised of data surveyed from 30,000 Americans working for midsize businesses with 1,000 to 5,000 employees. The data gathered is then measured on how likely the respondents are to recommend their employer to others. The final list ranks the 500 midsize employers that received the most recommendations.

"Our people are the lifeblood of Extra Space," says CEO Joe Margolis

According to Margolis, the reason for Extra Space Storage’s inclusion on the list is because of its employees, who embrace the company values every single day. “Our people are the lifeblood, and as a company, we pride ourselves on taking care of our people and making Extra Space Storage a top choice for talent.”

In addition to the recognition from Forbes, Extra Space Storage has been named one of Glassdoor’s 2018 Best Places to Work and one of Utah Business’ 2018 Best Companies to Work For.

With perks like parental leave, 401k and HSA match, an on-site gym, fitness programs, PTO, flexible work schedules, and more, Extra Space Storage has been praised for its employee and family-oriented culture. This reputation continues to secure business awards for the company, as well as top talent among recent college graduates interested in accounting, marketing, tech, finance, and other corporate positions.
