Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) September 19, 2008
Effectur, Inc. brought home second place in the recent "Best Places to Work 2008" ceremony held August 21. The Embassy Suites held 30 finalists in three size categories, Effectur being placed in mid-size. Being one of these nominees was a huge honor, as over 35,000 companies were compared.
Much of the decision-making for the awards came from anonymous employee surveys. Comments given within the surveys revealed each contender's unique perks. Some companies were highlighted for giving away complimentary cruises, birthdays off, and annual bonuses. While none of the finalist companies were stingy with vacations or other perks, in Effectur's case the key was in what employees enjoy every day.
Employees are treated to a catered lunch each day as well as several company-sponsored recreational events, all aside an attractive health care plan. Company president Kenneth Johnson is known for having sent an employee to the Ritz-Carlton luxury suites to gather ideas on making the Effectur workplace as similar as possible.
Beyond this, perhaps it's the sense of accomplishment that makes employees excited about their work. Johnson explains this by stating "when we go home at the end of the day we have not just shuffled some papers, but we have really made a difference in someone's life. Our mission is to provide peace of mind to our clients."
"Effectur's mission statement is not just for the clients but for the employees as well," says Lisa Carey, Junior Account Executive at Effectur. "Effectur is not only a great place to work but an extended family to several employees. As a fairly new employee of three months, it means a lot to me to work at a company with an awesome reputation." The company's commitment to exceed expectations and provide peace of mind is felt even by those that deliver it each day.
Effectur was very proud to be recognized in this prestigious event, and is excited at the opportunity to compete again next year as the company continues to evolve.
