Share Article

The Vanderbloemen Search Group has been honored with another workplace culture award with the latest being Houstonia’s 2017 Best Places to Work. CEO William Vanderbloemen shares his secrets for creating an irresistible workplace culture in his forthcoming book, Culture Wins.

If you have a bad culture, it will ruin your company. And, if you have a great culture, it will enable you to do great things.

The Vanderbloemen Search Group has done it again—it has won another award for workplace culture. The Houston-based church staffing firm was honored as one of Houstonia’s 2017 best places to work for its office space.

This award follows two Top 5 Company Culture awards from Entrepreneur and three Best Places to Work awards from the Houston Business Journal over the past three years. Vanderbloemen Search Group was also recognized this year by Forbes as a top executive recruiting firm.

The secret to the firm’s success is its priority of workplace culture. Houstonia cites its open, collaborative office space, weekly all-staff meetings, fully stocked pantry, sparkling water bar, and its own Vanderbrew Coffee. One wall features a word cloud of company values which includes “contagious fun.”

Indeed, founder and CEO William Vanderbloemen strives for his team to love coming to work. He shares his secrets to accomplishing this, along with those from other top workplace culture leaders, in his forthcoming book, Culture Wins: The Roadmap to an Irresistible Work Culture, published by Savio Republic and due out this spring.

The importance of workplace culture cannot be undervalued. Research shows a positive work environment translates into higher profits, job productivity, employee engagement, and—oh—happier employees.

“Culture is the largest determining factor of success for an organization, more than strategy, talent, or competence,” said Vanderbloemen. “If you have a bad culture, it will ruin your company. And, if you have a great culture, it will enable you to do great things. Culture wins, every time.”

Vanderbloemen has been asked to share his insights on workplace culture in outlets such as Forbes, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Inc., and Fast Company.
