Inc Magazine acknowledges that as a company, one of the biggest challenges is how to keep employees happy —and productive. "The solution has less to do with creating specific policies —many companies are eliminating them —than with creating workplace philosophies." For their second annual "Best Workplaces" competition, Inc. asked thousands of employees about the places they work and named GRAYBOX as one of one four Oregon companies.
We're honored to be included with the three other local workplaces who are widely known to also be awesome: Ruby Receptionists, Marmoset and Logical Position.
GRAYBOX has built an incredible culture. We have one of the coolest offices in Portland and tons of perks, but those things would be meaningless without the support, encouragement, and positivity that runs like a strong current through everyone. Leadership is experienced, helpful, encourages growth and learning and is willing to take the time to invest in the employees. Coworkers are collaborative, accountable and dependable. There is a definite team first mentality. Everyone is sold out and excited to be moving in the same direction. It is a ton of fun to work with experienced people who want to deliver the best product time and time again. No one complains, either. Even when it is late on a weekend night and a client has a problem with their website, everyone jumps in to take care of the client.
"A great corporate culture isn't something you can buy. It's organic; it has to be cultivated. Inc.'s Best Workplaces celebrates companies that actively strive to build vibrant and engaging cultures. More than 1,600 companies applied this year--three times as many as last year. Together with my company, Quantum Workplace, a leader in employee-feedback software, Inc. assessed these companies according to their employee-engagement and people practices," says Greg Harris for Inc Magazine about their award.
Thank you to our client partners and our awesome team for helping us win this esteemed award!
