Entrepreneur, along with CultureIQ, a culture engagement platform, is excited to announce our second-annual Top Company Cultures list, a ranking of high-performance cultures.
We are looking for companies that strive to be their very best by encouraging employees to take their career to the next level, fostering innovation, surpassing expectations and getting results.
The list defines a high-performance culture in relation to 10 qualities including innovation, communication, support and agility. (Here is a full list of all the qualities.)
Those companies that make our list not only receive validation for their standout culture but also many other benefits. The accolade can be used as a tool to recruit top talent, build brand awareness and boost morale. Plus, your business will also be part of the exclusive Entrepreneur community. Your company will be associated with the largest entrepreneurial platform of its kind, and may have the opportunity to be featured in follow-up posts and contribute to the online publication.
Last year, the companies featured on our list spanned 23 states and represented an array of industries including publishing, healthcare and technology. The winners were Elite SEM, a digital marketing agency, for our large-company category; Bounce Exchange, a company that provides behavioral-automation software, for our midsize category and church-staffing company Vanderbloemen Search Group for our small-company category. Other notable companies included MailChimp, HubSpot and Anytime Fitness corporate.
“FlexJobs was so honored to be recognized as a Top Company Culture. It was a great boost to our team and total validation that our efforts are being received with as much intention and care in which we mean them, says FlexJob’s Carol Cochran, the director of people and culture. “Most of our leadership team added the award to our signature lines in order to let everyone know how awesome our environment is!”
The submission is completely free, and all participating companies will receive a complimentary overview of how your company scores across the 10 culture qualities (Here is the full methodology). CultureIQ also provides additional upgrade options for a fee (this will not affect your scoring or ranking).
