Flashpoint is proud to be certified by Great Place to Work for the second year in a row.
The prestigious achievement is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Flashpoint. This year, 96 per cent of employees said it’s a great place to work – 37 points higher than the average US company.
Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviours proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.
A Great Place to Work Certification isn’t something that comes easily, and it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience, according to Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice-president of global recognition at Great Place to Work.
"It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture.
"Earning this designation means that Flashpoint is one of the best companies to work for in the country," Lewis-Kulin said.
Lisa Iadanza, chief people officer of Flashpoint, is thrilled that Flashpoint has achieved a Great Place to Work Certification for the second year in a row.
“The Flashpoint employee and new hire experience is our top priority, and it informs everything we do.
"We owe our continued success to every single Flashpointer."
"We celebrate and thank them for all they do to earn this incredible recognition,” Iadanza said.
How Flashpoint is building a people-first company
In 2021, Flashpoint’s people team executed a number of initiatives to support the remote worker and remote new hire experience. All staff new and tenured were given additional stipends to set up their home work environments. Furthermore, the team kicked off a new hire buddy program, which pairs new Flashpointers with employees from another team in order to build enduring and nurture-driven relationships across the company.
The people team also continued to set up virtual learning experiences and a myriad company-wide events, such as diversity and inclusion (D&I) discussion groups, trivia nights, holiday-themed activities and other fun diversions. Finally, the people team implemented greater and improved benefits, including the 2022 kick-off of a 401K match program, as well as access to Aaptiv, Headspace and Origin to support the physical, mental and financial wellbeing of Flashpoint employees, as well.
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at certified workplaces are 93 per cent more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
