Appletree Answers Donates to Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic

We are so honored that our video was selected the favorite amongst such a talented group of companies that also make their employees and workplace culture a priority.

Appletree Answers recently entered the ‘We Love Our Workplace’ Video contest hosted by Great Place to Work® Institute. Appletree Answer’s video was selected the winner out of more than 100 video entries.

Great Place To Work® Institute picked the top 10 video finalists and these video submissions were showcased at the 2012 Great Place to Work® Conference in Atlanta, GA, March 28-29. The competition was impressive with other top 10 video finalists including global and Fortune companies such as Conagra, Mattel, Mayo Clinic, SAS, and Wegmans.

As the winner, Appletree Answers will receive $5,000 to donate to a charity of their choice. Appletree Answers has chosen Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic.

“We are so honored that our video was selected the favorite amongst such a talented group of companies that also make their employees and workplace culture a priority,” says John Ratliff, CEO and founder of Appletree Answers. “We have won awards in the past based on Appletree Answer’s revenue or growth numbers, but this recognition is a true measure of success for our company.”

Appletree Answers currently employs more than 600 individuals across 22 locations and has built the foundation of their company culture on an employee-focused mentality and loyalty to their core values. This focus shines through in Appletree Answer’s Dream On program, an internal program that mirrors Make-A-Wish charity but for Appletree Answer employees. To date, Appletree Answers has granted more than 100 Dream On submissions including a trip to Disney World for one Appletree family and a dream honeymoon vacation for another.

“We’ve created a culture where our employees come first,” says Emily Ratliff, director of employee experience. “Our employees recognize our sincere concern for creating a positive and rewarding work environment. This mentality is often hard to explain in words but we were able to express it through our video.”
