If you ask nearly any Distillery employee what they like best about working here, they’re likely to answer, “the people.” That’s good news for us, because the fact is, any organization is only as good as the people who work there.
By cultivating a healthy, inclusive, and empowering working environment, Distillery is able to attract and retain top-tier talent. While happy workers indeed translate to happy clients — and in turn, to increased revenue and client retention — the bottom line is that the company culture we’ve created absolutely reflects who we are at our core. That’s why it’s tremendously gratifying to learn that Distillery has now been certified a “Great Place to WorkⓇ” by the Great Place to Work Institute!
The Great Place to Work Institute is the organization that annually compiles Fortune’s list of the “Best Companies to Work For.” The Institute has long been the global authority on “high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures” across industries and geographic markets. Each year, their proprietary research tool, the Trust Indexⓒ Employee Survey, is taken by more than 10 million employees in 50 countries. Building on 30 years of research and data, the Institute’s surveys help leading companies worldwide to learn what it takes to build, sustain, and scale a great workplace culture.
While we invite you to review Distillery’s Great Place to Work profile in greater detail, we’re immensely proud of our initial results, so we’ll share a portion of them here. Based on a sample size of 10 employee surveys, a remarkable 100% of Distillery’s employees said:
- “People care about each other here.”
- “People here are willing to give extra to get the job done.”
- “Management is honest and ethical in its business practices.”
- “Management trusts people to do a good job without watching over their shoulders.”
Employee ratings reflect a clear perception of:
- Great challenges
- Great atmosphere
- Great rewards
- Great pride
- Great communication
- Great bosses
Our Great Place to Work profile also paints a distinct portrait of a diverse, inclusive, and respect-centric company focused on helping our employees find fulfillment both personally and professionally. Flexible working hours, health club membership support, paid time off over the holidays, communal celebrations, and maternity and paternity leave help our people achieve work-life balance in a family-friendly environment — an environment which itself feels like a giant family. Personal mentoring relationships help us onboard, integrate, and develop new Distillery team members. Open office spaces provide further support to our organization-wide culture of respect and equality. In addition, the tone from the top is of “empowerment, not micromanagement,” helping our people to feel empowered, trusted, valued, and central to Distillery’s mission.
We love our people, and we were already pretty sure they seemed happy. We’re tremendously glad to have confirmation that we were right in that assessment. Happy employees = true success!
