Denver, CO – February 14, 2019 – Velocity Global, the leading provider of global business expansion services, earns two national accolades for top workplace: Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation® and Great Place to Work®. Both awards are based on anonymous employee surveys and assessed in categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, and retention.
Since starting Velocity Global nearly five years ago, founder and CEO Ben Wright set out to create a workplace and culture fueled by like-minded individuals who strive to support the company’s mission: help its clients navigate the entire lifecycle of international expansion with expert advice, premium support, and a fully-expansive suite of services.
“My motto has always been that we take our work seriously, but we don’t take ourselves seriously at work,” said Wright. “To be recognized for these awards directly by our employees shows we’re following through with both sides of the equation. A positive culture and workplace environment fosters growth and opportunities for our employees, and directly correlates with the level of service our clients experience.”
Culture is weaved into every aspect of what Velocity Global does. From perks like unlimited PTO and intramurals to ski trips, pool days, and all-expenses paid trips—the company’s 100+ employees have the opportunity to experience a work environment unlike any other. The most unique benefit of all is the company’s outreach program. On an employee’s first professional anniversary, and every anniversary after, Velocity Global pays for an international flight to visit a client that the company supports—anywhere around the world.
“We have taken great strides to offer perks and benefits our employees deserve, while also creating a place everyone enjoys coming to every day,” said Vice President of Human Resources, Jeannie Donovan. “To be recognized on a national level for these achievements in employee satisfaction is incredibly rewarding.”
Research shows that workplaces with high-trust cultures see higher levels of revenue, innovation, customer satisfaction, employee engagement, and organizational agility.
