Xelerate honored by SmartCEO’s Corporate Culture Awards!
SmartCEO recently announced Xelerate as a 2015 Corporate Culture Award winner. This year’s winners will be recognized in the November/December issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony in December. The Corporate Culture Award recognizes industrious companies with positive and productive corporate cultures that are the result of efforts from employees and leadership to build successful cultural practices.
Kerry Martin, Senior Talent Acquisition Partner has this to say about our successful culture: “We work hard and play hard. We work hard to meet our objectives and when they are met, everyone is there to send congratulations. We are enthusiastic and professional, yet personable, which is seen and respected by our clients.”
During an internal review of our cultural practices it became clear that many employees attribute our growth to the transparency of leadership and accountability of the team. We have a dispersed workforce, with over 90% of team members not reporting to the office every day because they are on site with clients, or working from home offices. We employ team members in four different states across three time zones, yet everyone stays connected through email, organized events, and regular phone conferences. Perhaps most notably, over 60% of our team hires come from employee referrals!
We are honored to be receiving an award that celebrates our efforts to create and maintain a successful culture. Our team is looking forward to celebrating by attending the event, followed by a night out on the town!
