In all, the paper is honoring 15 firms in this category of companies with between 10 and 24 employees.
This year’s program drew about 180 nominations from companies on the “micro” end with fewer than 25 employees up to those in the “extra-large” category. Regardless of size, all participating companies needed to have a large percentage of employees complete an online survey prepared and managed by our program partner, Quantum Workplace.
Employee scores were measured on how favorably they responded to questions in core areas including personal engagement, communication and resources, teamwork, retention, alignment with goals, trust with co-workers and senior leaders, manager effectiveness, job satisfaction, etc. We then selected our winners based on highest scores in each size category.
“We started by hiring people that are competent, humble and driven and give them the autonomy to do their jobs. We often talk about not hiring people that need to be ‘managed.’ We encourage and support as much fun and social interactions as possible. Happy teams that have embedded friendships create a great work environment!” said Director of HR & Recruiting, Ryan Vecitis. "Our 97.14 point score is a testament to how much our team loves to work together."
