Building a great company is about rallying around a clear and important mission, having a sense of humor to deal with the inevitable ups and downs and being able to work closely together.
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) May 23, 2018
Scientist.com, the life science industry’s leading online marketplace for outsourced research, announced today that it has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018, the publication’s third annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.
Hitting newsstands today in the June 2018 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the award is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just under 300 winning companies.
“Building a great company is more than just about good pay and nice perks," stated Kevin Lustig, PhD, CEO and Founder of Scientist.com. “It’s also about rallying around a clear and important mission, having a sense of humor to deal with the inevitable ups and downs and being able to work closely together in a respectful way.”
The 2018 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a detailed 30-question survey. Responses were evaluated by a research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count.
“By including an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves,” says James Ledbetter, Inc. Editor-in-Chief.
