Hitting newsstands today in the June 2017 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 who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 200 winning companies.
Built in partnership with employee engagement and work culture experts Quantum Workplace of Omaha, Nebraska, Inc.'s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent.
What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it's more than good pay and good perks – it's also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes the two work together.
"Once an employee has made it through our extensive application process, we are invested for the long-term. We have a very flat organization that focuses on nurturing growth and expertise, rather than dictating from the top down," said Steve Weiss, MuteSix's co-founder and CEO. "Our core focus as employers is to identify any way we can support each team member, and not to get in their way,"
The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees' responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop:
- Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
- Workers at the best companies don't view their employers as sugar daddies. They aren't mesmerized by whatever giveaways seem to be the latest fad—be it gourmet lunches or beer fridges.
- When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged. This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.
The Best Workplaces award is the latest in a slew of honors for MuteSix. After finishing 2016 with more Facebook Success Stories than any other agency and receiving featured case studies with Google and Marketo, MuteSix was named one of the top 10 best performance marketing agencies by native advertising platform Outbrain.
MuteSix was founded by Steve Weiss and Daniel Rutberg with one core mission — to provide companies with a highly effective user acquisition service that delivers significant ROI. Steve and Dan focused primarily on Facebook and grew the company to be the "go-to" solution for performance marketing in Los Angeles.
MuteSix is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA and works with clients across the United States and Europe.
