Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 04, 2015
Rational Interaction was recently ranked on Entrepreneur's Top Company Cultures list, a comprehensive ranking of U.S.-based businesses exhibiting high-performance cultures created in partnership with culture management software and service provider CultureIQ®. The Top Company Cultures list has placed Rational Interaction as No. 14 in the medium-sized category. Rational Interaction is recognized for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations and directly impacts company success.
“At Rational, our philosophy is that every team member is helping to build the company,” said owners Selina Petosa and Joseph Debons. “From the two-person start-up in 2009 to the team of nearly 100 we are today, every team member has had a crucial role in building the business and helping Rational and its clients thrive. This sense of ownership drives our company culture, which encourages an entrepreneurial spirit, dramatic professional growth and ownership over our individual and collective work. We couldn’t be prouder of our team and the company we’ve created together.”
"Creating an entrepreneurial culture is a key priority for business leaders, yet no one until now has really assessed the role culture plays in success," says Ray Hennessey, editorial director of Entrepreneur.com. "This ranking celebrates the dedication that all teams, from entry-level to the C-suite, have in ensuring they are creating vibrant, healthy and sustainable work environments. That's good for employees, investors and customers."
The full list, presenting a total of 75 companies categorized as small, medium-sized or large companies—25-49 employees, 50-99 employees and more than 100 employees— is available on Entrepreneur.com. Core insights, behaviors and attributes that have helped to shape the high-performing cultures presented by the top companies are shared alongside practices to help other companies work on their own workplace environments.
"There is always an opportunity to learn from each other when running and growing a business, which is why we are excited to honor these companies and share their success in building an effective culture," says CultureIQ founder and CEO Greg Besner. "I find it particularly inspiring to see a wide variety of companies represented in the list, confirming that you can have a strong culture regardless of industry, size, or business maturity."
The rankings for all companies were determined using CultureIQ's methodology for measuring high-performance cultures. Employees at each company received a survey of 21 short, multiple-choice questions. The answers were used to assess a company's strength across 10 core qualities of culture – performance focus, support and innovation, to name a few. These quality strength scores were combined with the employee Net Promoter Score to create a cumulative CultureIQ Score. The companies with the highest CultureIQ Scores became the Top Company Culture list in ranking order. To be considered for the ranking, a company must have at least 25 employees, have been founded before Jan. 1, 2014 and be headquartered in the U.S.
