ATLANTA, May 6, 2020 (Newswire.com) - BELAY has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2020. Hitting newsstands May 12 in the May/June 2020 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.
And creating an exceptional workplace is something that BELAY, a virtual staffing company that offers executive assistants, bookkeepers, and website specialist services, has cultivated with intentionality since its inception in 2010.
“My vision has always been to first and foremost carry on the culture of BELAY as it was created by the Miles those 10 years ago,” says BELAY CEO Tricia Sciortino. “So to be recognized for maintaining that legacy makes this an even greater honor.”
Collecting data from more than 3,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 395 finalists for this year’s list. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. Then it ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. This year, 73.5 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It is a different playbook from a decade ago when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
“We know that culture isn’t something that you can see, taste, touch, or smell; it is the only environment that you can feel,” BELAY VP of HR Krisha Buehler says.
“It’s that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you dread going to work or the excitement you feel when you’re actually eager to go to work,” says BELAY COO Lisa Zeeveld. “For us – and this may seem contrived – not being encumbered by having to go to an office every day means we really, truly have fun working together.”
“Building a great corporate culture comes only from strong leadership,” says Inc. Magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from, especially now, when company culture is more important to the workforce than ever.”
Growing an organization is difficult in our demanding world. BELAY helps clients accomplish more by matching them with dedicated, professional, U.S.-based remote staff who can take on key projects and handle routine responsibilities, allowing executives and company owners to focus on growing their businesses.
