Earlier this week, Great Place to Work announced its 3rd annual Great Place to Work For All Leadership Awards during their For All 2020 Summit in San Francisco. We are proud to announce that Hughes Marino President & COO Shay Hughes was recognized as a top For All Leader among companies on Fortune’s impressive annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, the 100 Best Workplaces for Women, the 100 Best Workplaces for Diversity, and the 150 Best Small and Medium Companies to Work For!
Nominated by our team for being a For All Leader at Hughes Marino, Shay has consistently played a critical role in helping our team be successful by practicing humility and empathy, for dedication and commitment to the development of our team, for connecting diverse people to a common purpose, for adapting to uncertainty, and for fostering trusting relationships within and beyond our team!
Shay is one of 60 leaders nationwide recognized by Great Place to Work for their contributions to their company’s business, helping to fully live their values in service to clients and team members.
Not only has Shay completely transformed Hughes Marino, but she also is revolutionizing the entire commercial real estate industry itself with her innovative, nurturing and family-style approach to business management. The combination of her dedicated work ethic, impeccable attention to detail and keen sense of innovation have been the driving forces behind Hughes Marino’s success, and these qualities are what set Shay and Hughes Marino apart from the industry.
Hughes Marino has received countless amounts of national and local recognition for being a best place to work by Fortune, Entrepreneur, Inc. and numerous Business Journals, which could not have achieved without the phenomenal guidance from Shay and Chairman & CEO, Jason Hughes. Together they have created a nurturing, supportive environment where team members support one another like family, are committed to delivering excellent service to their clients, and are constantly pursuing personal and professional growth to thrive in and out of the office.
We cannot wait to see where her leadership takes the company next! Shay says it best: “While perhaps unconventional, we 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. It encourages them to deliver quality service to our clients and our company. As a result, our company culture allows individuals the opportunity to be happy, fulfilled and ultimately successful in both their personal and professional lives.” We couldn’t agree more!
The awards gala kicked off the 17th annual Great Place to Work® For All Summit™, March 3rd through 5th in San Francisco. In recognizing the honorees, Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush said “We are honored to celebrate your shining examples of For All Leaders—the individuals who are adept at cultivating genuine human connections, solving multi-dimensional problems, and enabling every employee to bring their unique selves to work.”
Congratulations to all of the incredible honorees who are leading their companies towards success!
