Liftoff makes the list second year in a row

Liftoff has, yet again, been named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2018, the publication’s third annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector. Liftoff made the list last year.

Part of a prominent inc.com feature, the award 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. The list will be included in June’s magazine print publication. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just under 300 winning companies.

The 2018 Inc. Best Workplaces Award 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.

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 them all work together. 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.

Liftoff definitely embodies the themes found across the winning companies by Inc. Magazine and Quantum Workplace. For more details, see the full press release.

 

Liftoff is once again honored to be named on the Inc. Best Workplaces list… oh yeah, and we’re hiring.
