Companies with cultures emphasizing credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie top the list.
While visible benefits like casual dress, holiday celebrations and all-team smoothies to celebrate work anniversaries might appear to be 4imprint’s key differentiators, it’s the values that drive those practices that are recognized through the Great Place to Work honors. Judges point to employee survey responses that show company values of honesty, curiosity, collaboration, flexibility, accountability, empathy, positive attitude and humility are used with customers, employees and vendor partners.
“Our team members know, first and foremost, that our goal is to do right by others and they work hard to live out that approach each and every day,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, CEO, 4imprint. “It is humbling to work with a team so committed to building a remarkable workplace.”
