Extra Space Storage Named One of America's Best Employers by Forbes


Salt Lake City, Utah-based Extra Space Storage, Inc. has been named one of "America's Best Midsize Employers" by Forbes. Extra Space Storage was in the top five Utah based businesses to be recognized and is the only self storage company featured.

"Our people are the lifeblood of Extra Space and we really pride ourselves as a company on taking care of our people and making Extra Space a top choice for talent. We're glad to see Forbes recognize our unique company culture and include Extra Space on their list of top employers."

-Joe Margolis, CEO, Extra Space Storage

Forbes partnered with market-research company Statista to identify companies liked best by employees for its annual ranking, which is divided into two lists. One highlights large companies with more than 5,000 U.S. employees, while the other showcases midsize companies with 1,000 to 5,000. Extra Space was featured in the “Business Service & Supplies” category for midsized employers.

Statista anonymously surveyed 50,000 Americans working for companies with at least 1,000 employees. Respondents were asked to rate how likely they’d recommend their employer to others on a scale of one to 10. Statista then asked them to nominate organizations in industries outside their own. The final list ranks 500 large and 500 midsize employers that received the most recommendations.

Extra Space was also recently named a Glassdoor Best Places to Work and a Utah Business Best Companies to Work For.

"People ask me what it takes to be successful at Extra Space. The answer is simple – live our values every day," Margolis said. "Our Extra Space 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."

Extra Space Storage Inc. is the second largest self storage real estate investment trust in the nation and is a member of the S&P 500. The Company owns and/or operates nearly 1,700 self storage properties in 40 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
