You know those companies that seem like the ideal workplace? They offer great perks. They've established a solid company culture. They're unified by a polished mission statement and their employees constantly brag about a fantastic working environment.
Well, we're both proud and humbled to announce we've been recognized as one of these workplaces. Business.com has once again been declared by its employees and the San Diego Business Journal as a "Best Place to Work", for the third year in a row, based on the company's culture, management and benefits.
Sponsored by Moss Adams LLP, Kaiser Permanente, United Concordia, Active Network, and Paradise Point, this survey and awards program "was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in San Diego, benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and businesses." The list comprises 100 San Diego businesses, divided into four categories based on employee size.
"From a culture standpoint, we've radically transformed our company by flattening our management structure and redefining our culture to focus on customers," says Tony Uphoff, CEO. "In just a couple of years, we've moved from a single product offering to a multi-product platform and become smarter about using data to guide our business. Our product and process expansion along with hiring the right people has been key to our performance. In just a few short weeks, we will achieve our greatest transformation yet affectionately dubbed The Kraken, which is the code name for the next generation of our site and platform."
We're all honored here at Business.com and we wanted to share our excitement with our loyal readers. Business.com was founded in 1999 as the leading search engine for small business and corporate information. Nearly one year ago today, Business.com created a new business strategy, shifting the business to focus on the audience and move from a rented to owned audience model. Today, with the launch of the Kraken, Business.com takes contextual, intention-based marketing to the next level by delivering a series of marketing solutions engineered to make digital marketing easy, from awareness to engagement and lead nurturing through to a sale.
The list of the 100 Best Places to Work in San will be unveiled at a special awards ceremony on August 7, 2014. For more information on the Best Places to Work in San Diego program, visit www.BestPlacestoWorkSD.com.
