WILLIAMS, Ariz. (PRWEB) December 29, 2020
Fast-growing, virtual branding and strategic communications agency, Trust Relations, was recognized as a top-rated culture winner at the Powderkeg’s 2020 Tech Culture Awards virtual ceremony. Companies throughout the country were surveyed based on their workplace environment — specifically, how it has been impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic with regard to maintaining a remote workforce, as well as employee feedback on how their employers contribute to company culture through leadership, professional development, work-life balance and remote team building.
“Lucky for us, we were remote before it was ‘cool’ — or required,” said April White, president and founder of Trust Relations. “It’s an honor to be recognized for our unique business model. We’ve learned from employee feedback that, while we haven’t all met face-to-face, they appreciate the virtual company culture we’ve cultivated since our founding in early 2019. In fact, to spread the holiday cheer, we recently held a virtual White Elephant gift exchange that was a big hit!”
The awards were held at Powderkeg’s first-ever two-day Unvalley Virtual Conference, where companies celebrated the decentralization of technology innovation and learned about some of the biggest opportunities in tech beyond Silicon Valley. Trust Relations’ newly-appointed Chief Client Officer, Lana Dao, was in attendance remotely to hear from other leaders building high-performing teams outside the main tech hubs.
“It was truly fascinating to hear about, and from, the tech powerhouses of the ‘Mighty Middle’ Midwest and how companies in this region have taken learnings from the traditional coastal tech hubs, and evolved them to create incredible innovation all on their own,” said Dao. “This industry is growing at an exponential rate and we look forward to partnering with many of these companies in the years to come.”
The 100+ winning companies were recognized for being culture leaders at a national level, and 18 companies were awarded with top honors. Winners were recognized for one or more categories such as: Top-Rated for Work-Life Balance; Top-Rated Leadership Team; Top-Rated Remote Work; Top-Rated for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; Top-Rated Overall Culture; Regional Best Overall Culture: Southeast, Midwest, Northeast, Central, Northwest, Southwest; Best Startup Culture; Best Scaleup Culture and Best Enterprise Culture. There were also categories based on teams and regions where companies are headquartered. Awards were granted based on application responses and survey rankings by each company’s employees.
