New York, NY – Vistar Media 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 employee engagement platform and service provider Energage. The Top Company Cultures list has placed Vistar as 30th in the medium business category. Vistar is recognized for creating an exceptional culture that drives employee engagement, exceeds employee expectations and directly impacts company success.
Since 2012, Vistar Media has been building something special: an inclusive and overall awesome place to work, where the growth of our employees is a priority.
Our culture thrives on play within work: being busy nonstop, but taking time to acknowledge victories both big and small. From holiday celebrations to new-hire happy hours, regularly scheduled team building activities and social outings guarantee we play (almost) as hard as we work. Comprised of individuals from different industries and diverse backgrounds, our organization practices a flat team structure. With constant cross-department and management engagement, each employee is empowered to develop a high degree of autonomy and take end-to-end ownership of their initiatives.
Ultimately, our employees are united by a common belief in Vistar Media’s potential. We’re passionate about the work we produce and feel proud of the company’s accomplishments – understanding how each individual contribution will impact our continued success.
“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."
The full list, presenting a total of 150 companies categorized as small, midsize or large companies—with 74 or fewer employees, 75-299 employees and more than 300 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.
“Becoming a Top Company Cultures winner isn’t something an organization can buy,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “It’s an achievement 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.”
Employees took online surveys, and the honorees were determined and ranked based solely on their survey feedback scores. Each company was measured in response to 24 questions on subject matters such as connection, alignment, effectiveness, leadership and management, as well as basics such as pay, benefits and flexibility.
To be considered for the ranking, the companies must have had at least 35 employees, have been founded before Jan. 1, 2016, must be founder led (at least 10% ownership of the company),and be headquartered in the U.S. There was no cost to participate in the survey. Individual employee responses were anonymous.
