2014 In Review
“I love being part of an organization that truly values its people and feeling that sense of appreciation on a weekly basis,” says an employee. “NaviTrust does a lot of smaller things that are so easily overlooked but keep such good rapport in the company.”
“Not many organizations do continual training for their people to help keep their skills sharp. I’m grateful that our leadership recognizes how important this is and has provided this. It is definitely part of the overall culture of the company to continually improve and receive good training.”
The National Institute of Medical Aesthetics
Many of the employees of the National Institute of Medical Aesthetics (NIMA) are working mothers, and the company strives to provide them with the flexibility they need. “They care about us being with our families,” explains an employee. “I can take whatever [time] I need off as long as I get my job done, [and] work from home when needed.”
“I feel that NIMA is dedicated to developing their employees and helping them grow with the company,” says another worker.
“Every employee gets opportunities for continuing education for free. Rarely does an employee leave NIMA because of the many growth opportunities working for such a new and fast-growing company.”
With an office slide, a company scooter and in-house snack bar, life is pretty entertaining at Neutron Interactive. “We do a team activity each month, which has been things like go-cart racing at the raceway, Lagoon, a ghost tour, golf—whatever you can think of is on the table,” explains a satisfied employee.
But beyond the fun and games, the company is dedicated to employee development. In addition to providing educational reimbursements, the company brings speakers into the office and sends employees to conferences and seminars. “My company is very vocal about what direction the company is going and where we will be in five to 10 years. It also gives every employee the opportunity for growth and development in any area they would like to excel,” says another employee.
“I know this may sound canned, but there is a real synergy about the different teams within the company and how they complement each other to reach the company's vision. Neutron has a fairly relaxed environment that really allows for people to express their ideas and get their creative juices flowing.”
“Xima offers the best of everything to its employees. It feels like they have taken the generally accepted precedent for benefits policies and gone one step above in every category,” says a self-described “Ximite.” Employees appreciate the generous 401(k) match, as well as health benefits that are 100 percent employer-paid.
Xima also places a strong emphasis on culture and team cohesion. The company has a party every Friday—often celebrating “holidays” like National Guacamole Day or Justin Timberlake’s birthday. Workers also gather to play video games every Thursday night. As part of Xima’s wellness program, employees compete to achieve the most active minutes, as logged on their company-provided Fitbits, with prizes given out monthly and annually.
“We all wear a lot of hats and do a lot of different jobs, but we are continually given things that promote growth
for ourselves as employees, as we help the overall growth of Xima.”
TEKsystems has a branch office in Utah, but the company is a multi-billion-dollar tech staffing firm with a national presence. This gives employees the best of both worlds: the tight-knit feeling of a small company with the benefits that come from a large corporation. For example, employees have access to corporate discounts on gym memberships, computers and car rentals and purchases. The company also offers instructor-led training for newly promoted account managers, along with ongoing leadership training.
“There are many opportunities to grow within the company, whether it be locally or throughout the nation. The company wants you to stick around and build your career here, and they give you that opportunity,” explains an employee.
“My company offers me the ability to treat my business like I’m an owner. I’m given the necessary amount of training I need to successfully do my job well and if there’s areas I feel I need more support in the company always complies. … I love that I control what I make per week and year.”
