INC Magazine and Winning Workplaces

LoadSpring Solutions is proud to announce being selected as a winner of Inc. magazine and Winning Workplaces 2011 Top Small Company Workplaces competition—an annual contest that recognizes the nation’s best small and mid-sized company work environments—in Inc.’s June issue.

Every year since 2003, Winning Workplaces, an Evanston, IL-based nonprofit organization, has recognized those firms that attribute much of their business success to their commitment to exemplary people practices and outstanding workplace cultures.

LoadSpring offers its employees an extra weeks vacation and up to $6000 to encourage travel outside of the United States. “Our program, called CultureSpring, enables employees to experience first-hand different cultures which creates the opportunity for employees to build a broader perspective and appreciation of the world.”, says Eric Leighton, President and CEO.  Dyn, a 24-hour software support firm,acts as a single team; no task is too small for any employee to perform. The CEO works the support queue, the founder handles “on call” rotations, and managers still answer midnight phone calls. The 2011 Top Small Company Workplaces are, as represented by the organizations above, compelling examples of successful organizations with unique, exceptional cultures.

Winning Workplaces and Inc. received nearly 350 completed applications for the contest. A national panel of experts in leadership and small to mid-sized business judged the finalists. Selections were based on specific metrics and qualitative assessments of the finalists’ success in creating the kind of workplaces that engage employees and deliver bottom-line results.

“This year’s winning firms distinguish themselves in so many ways,” asserts Ken Lehman, chairman of Winning Workplaces. “They are steadily growing their revenues, often out performing their industries; have identified niches where they add unmatched value; and are guided by strong missions and values. And, they make no secret of the fact that a key driver behind their success is their engaged and committed workforces.”

“These firms represent some of the finest privately held companies in the world,” states Bob LaPointe, president of Inc. “Their stories, appearing in the June issue of Inc., clearly demonstrate that taking an innovative approach to creating the right culture—one in which human capital is embedded in a company’s value proposition—can create real competitive leadership. Each of these Top Small Company Workplaces offers an environment in which people flourish and, as a result, profit follows.”
