We are excited to announce that Hughes Marino was just named as one of Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures for the third year! We placed #2 on the list and we are truly honored to be recognized amongst so many outstanding companies who value company culture!
While perhaps unconventional, from day one, Chairman and CEO Jason Hughes and I have always led with the idea that our team members are an extension of family. When you start from that standpoint and combine that with our 10 Core Values that everyone on our team embodies, it’s a pretty simple recipe for a happy, tight-knit team and strong foundation to build on. We are more like a family than simply ‘co-workers’ and we are ecstatic to know that our team members cherish one another like a family and strive towards a collective goal of delivering quality service to our clients. Jason and I are always looking for new ways to enrich the lives of our team members, in both their personal and professional lives!
This list is a comprehensive ranking of U.S.-based businesses exhibiting high-performance cultures created in partnership with employee engagement platform and service provider Energage. “Becoming a Top Company Cultures winner isn’t something an organization can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “It’s an achievement that organizations have to work for. Based on our decade of research, we have come to view workplace culture is the only remaining sustainable competitive business advantage. Great strategies can be copied, but culture cannot.”
From our beautiful offices that are homes away from home, to monthly birthday celebrations, fun contests, inspiring team meetings with business coaches, and our fun Fridays, we know that happiness is contagious and we love to enjoy the journey with one another whenever possible.
“Great company cultures don’t happen by accident. They happen because leaders understand how to create excellent working environments, and how to make everyone share the same mission,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “Our 2018 Top Company Cultures list is a great celebration of companies that are doing it right, and should serve as inspiration for everyone who leads a team.”
We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Hughes Marino as we continue to expand our reach across the nation. One thing is for certain, we will continue to cultivate our culture and maintain a welcoming and supportive environment for team members as we grow!
