ANNAPOLIS, Md., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DATUM LLC, the leading provider of Data Governance software for large enterprises, is the newest recipient of the 2015 Corporate Culture Award by SmartCEO magazine. Winners are recognized for fostering a creative, collaborative workplace that bolsters performance and sustains a competitive advantage.
"Creating a fun and productive environment for our employees has been central to the DATUM mission. We feel that a culture of leadership and ownership has helped us achieve competitive advantage and hold on to our most important asset, our people," said Matt Eversmann, VP of Leadership Development. "This is exemplified by our latest ranking at #823 on the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America list."
DATUM, founded in 2009 around a kitchen table, has remained true to their start-up roots as the company doubles and triples in size. Remaining dedicated to their founding principles; DATUM values open communication, transparent strategy, professional growth, and extra perks, such as 'Free Lunch Friday.' "We invest a significant amount of time and money into our people. To support professional growth, we have established a successful mentoring program and have reengineered the performance evaluation program throughout the entire company," Eversmann continued. As an extension of their mission, DATUM team members may now enroll in professional development courses offered at DATUM University.
Another creative twist to DATUM's culture is their unique recruiting and interview style. After the traditional resume review and interview process, the top candidates will go through DATUM's Leadership Training Program (LTP). The LTP is a two-day session of education on new topics and keynote speeches by external advisors. During the session, project scenarios allow the company to judge the candidates' personalities, teamwork skills, leadership potential and much more. This in-depth process has allowed DATUM to build a strong team.
"At DATUM, we are continually reminded that our work, our ideas and our happiness matters. Learning and working are not mutually exclusive here; I can be a mentee, take courses and contribute to the organization's goals," said Kelly Schlittler, Sales Administrator.
DATUM will be profiled in the Nov/Dec issue of SmartCEO magazine and honored on December 15th at the awards event in the Under Armour facility in Baltimore.
SmartCEO's mission is to educate and inspire the business community through its award-winning magazine, connections at C-level events and access to valuable online resources.
