We have landed at #28 on FORTUNE magazine’s annual list of “100 Best Companies to Work For®” and we couldn’t be more excited!! You can see details and features on all of the honored companies at www.fortune.com/bestcompanies – congrats to each of them!!
In addition to being named #28 overall, we’re also very proud that FORTUNE recognized us for our employee-first approach to our IPO this past November – including that we reserved an unprecedented 14% of the total shares offered for employees to purchase and we LOVED that they highlighted our annual We Love Our Employees Day celebration in their “10 top perks from Best Companies 2014” feature!
It’s our 15th year in a row to be included on this employer-of-choice list and we truly see this as one of our biggest accomplishments as 2/3 of the score is determined by an anonymous employee survey. We’re proud our employees are happy, that they feel safe, secure, included, challenged and most of all, excited to come to work! Now THAT warms our hearts and is something we’re proud of!
It’s our culture that drives all we do for our business, and we nurture and develop it by to operating our company according to our Foundation Principles and the tenets of Conscious Capitalism, staying focused on taking care of ALL of our stakeholders – including our employees, customers, vendors, community members and shareholders.
