Hughes Marino Ranked on Entrepreneur’s National Top Company Cultures List for Second Year in a Row

By Briana Waris


Hughes Marino was recently ranked on Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures list, a comprehensive ranking of U.S-based businesses exhibiting high-performance cultures created in partnership with culture management software and service provider CultureIQ®. The Top Company Cultures list has ranked Hughes Marino as #3 in the nation in the Medium Company category. This marks the company’s second year for making the list, as 2015 was the inaugural year where Hughes Marino ranked #2 in the Small Company category. Hughes Marino is recognized for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations and directly impacts company success.

“We are thrilled that Hughes Marino has been recognized on Entrepreneur’s prestigious list two years in a row. It is truly a testament to our incredible team, and the intentional effort we have made to nurture and protect our cherished company culture. Our emphasis on building strong relationships, trust, and embracing the family spirit comes straight from our core values, which are the root of our success as a company,” says Shay Hughes, Hughes Marino COO and owner.

“Great company cultures don’t happen on their own. They’re the result of great leadership, and a conscious effort to make everyone on a team feel engaged and important,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “The honorees on our 2017 list are proof that strong cultures make even stronger companies. Entrepreneurs at all levels can draw inspiration from them.”

The full list, presenting a total of 153 companies categorized as small, medium-sized or large companies—with 25-49 employees, 50-99 employees and more than 100 employees, respectively— is available on Entrepreneur.com. Core insights, behaviors and attributes that have helped to shape the high-performing cultures presented by the top companies are shared alongside practices to help other companies develop their own workplace environments.

“A high-performance culture leads not only to employee engagement but also to measurable business results,” says Greg Besner, founder and CEO of CultureIQ. “These organizations show us that great companies start with great culture.”

The rankings for all companies were determined using CultureIQ’s methodology for measuring high-performance cultures. Employees at each company received a survey of multiple-choice questions and the answers were used to assess a company’s strength across 10 core components of culture–collaboration, innovation and communication, to name a few. The companies with the highest scores became the Top Company Culture list in ranking order. To be considered for the ranking, a company must have at least 25 employees, have been founded before Jan. 1, 2015, and be headquartered in the U.S.
