Inc. Best Workplaces Award - The Gunter Group


"This award means so much to us. Our goal has always been to create an environment where people would feel deeply engaged and thrive. Having our success recognized as a Best Workplace by Inc. magazine is quite an honor." Mike Gunter - Founder of The Gunter Group

The Gunter Group has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.

Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.

In response to the award, Mike Gunter, founder of The Gunter Group stated, "This award means so much to us. Our goal has always been to create an environment where people would feel deeply engaged and thrive. Having our success recognized as a Best Workplace by Inc. magazine is quite an honor."

“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” said Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
