SILVER SPRING, Md. (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
Webs, the digital services business of Vistaprint and provider of the world’s premier marketing platform for the small business, announced that it has been selected as one of The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces for 2015. The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback through an employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm on organization and employee engagement.
Founded in 2001 by three brothers, Webs retains its startup-inspired culture even after being acquired by Vistaprint in 2011. Webs strives to ensure employees are happy, engaged and fulfilled by their work through many initiatives that help colleagues build relationships and foster new ideas.
Work events and after-work outings: As a way to promote teamwork and collaboration, Webs organizes events where employees can interact with each other in non-work activities, including baseball games, company happy hours, volunteer opportunities, brewery tours, go-kart racing and an ongoing company-wide ping-pong competition.
Wellness programs: Striving to promote a healthy work environment, Webs offers fitness reimbursements, workout clubs, daily pushup and core workout breaks, and healthy snacks available every day.
Work/life balance: Webs understands the importance of work/life balance, therefore it provides the option to work remotely when needed, and offers transportation reimbursements and generous time off and maternity leave.
Continuing education and development programs: To help employees grow and learn new skills, Webs offers tuition reimbursement for relevant course work, opportunities to attend conferences and industry events, promotes “intrapreneurship” within the company and hosts regular hack-a-thons and “Town Hall Meetings.”
Employee recognition awards: Webs recognizes employees monthly for their hard work with awards like a ‘Foodie’ Award given to the top performing group as recognized by their peers and taken out to a restaurant of their choice; The Chill Award, which provides the winner a half-day off, and the Chair Person Award, which sends the winner to a special training conference or a course in his/her area of expertise.
“It’s an honor to receive this award as a top workplace in the D.C. area,” said Scott Bowen, vice president and general manager of Webs. “We have a team of bright, talented people who are passionate about our purpose and innovation, and we’re committed to making Webs a positive and engaging environment. Exceptional work can only be done if our employees are fulfilled and engaged, and this award validates our efforts to ensure just that.”
